Increase Energy Efficiency
Halcyon Shades can save 10-25% on a building’s energy spend, thus increasing a company’s bottom line. The figures were derived from the Department of Energy’s EQUEST energy modeling software. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories has determined that metalized polyester material can reflect energy and prevent it from penetrating into the building.
Heating a building can become very costly during cold-weather months if you don’t have the proper window insulation. Because of this, it’s crucial that you have an effective heating system in place. A good heating system does not just entail a well-functioning furnace. Window coverings that ensure proper window insulation matter. At Halcyon Shades, we provide window shade products that improve window insulation.
Insulation Solutions from Halcyon Shades
Utilizing radiant barrier technology, Halcyon Shades can eliminate up to 97% of solar heat gain or loss. Radiant barrier technology works like a thermos. During a hot summer day, a thermos will keep an ice-cold drink cold all day. During the winter, that same thermos will keep a hot drink hot all day. Halcyon Shades utilize the same principle employed by a thermos. During the winter, this technology reduces heat loss through the glass from the interior and inhibits the cold from entering the building. During the summer, this same technology reduces the solar heat gain through the window and keeps the cool air in the building. Thusly, the load on a building’s HVAC system is lowered.

When designing a building, it’s important to pay close attention to cooling system components –and more specifically, window insulation. Window insulation is an essential factor that is often overlooked in building design. Luckily, high-quality shades have the ability to greatly impact cooling systems, making them more energy-efficient than ever.
