{window treatment wednesday: save money and energy with the right window treatment from Hirshfield’s}

Summertime weather forecasts here in Minnesota usually include the three “H’s” – hot, hazy and humid. Sure you could crank up the AC or turn on some fans to help cool your home down, but you could also simply add a fourth “H” to that list – Hirshfield’s – and combat the summer heat (and summer energy bill) with some beautiful window treatments!

Yes, brains and beauty come together in the energy efficient window treatment offerings at Hirshfield’s. Look for window treatments with a low Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC), which is the amount of solar heat that passes through a window, where 0 = none and 1 = all. The lower a product’s SHGC, the less solar heat it transmits, which can help a home stay cooler in the warm summer months.

A customer favorite at Hirshfield’s is the Hunter Douglas Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shade, the most energy efficient and best-selling honeycomb product Hunter Douglas carries.
