Hunter Douglas Shades Now Qualify for Federal Tax Credit

Motorized shades offer extreme convenience. With one touch of a button, you can lower or raise every shade in one room or your entire home. They can also be automatically programmed to open and close based on the time of day, the location of the sun, and the temperature in a room. 

These window coverings enhance privacy and security; protect flooring, furniture, and artwork from damaging UV rays; and add beauty and elegance to your home. They can also dramatically reduce energy consumption. 

This last benefit led the federal government to include Hunter Douglas Shades in the federal tax credit supporting the purchase of energy-efficient products. Let’s explore this great opportunity for homeowners in Bellevue, WA.

The Hunter Douglas Duette Honeycomb Shades Tax Credit

As part of the Energy Efficient Home Improvement Credit under the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, consumers can receive tax credits by prioritizing energy efficiency when updating their homes’ interiors. Hunter Douglas, a world leader in custom motorized window coverings and Wipliance partner, offers the largest portfolio of window treatments eligible under this act. 

Hunter Douglas Duette and Applause Honeycomb window shades with PowerView Automation qualify for the federal energy tax credit. These credits let you earn 30% off the purchase price, up to an annual amount of $1,200.

The Features in Duette Honeycomb Shades

Duette Honeycomb Shades feature a unique cell-within-a-cell design that traps air in special pockets. This form of insulation helps keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. In addition, these motorized window shades come in stunning, high-quality fabrics, providing the perfect solution for your home’s aesthetics. 

The Energy Savings

In addition to saving money on the purchase price, you can reduce your utility bills and support a greener home. According to a study by the U.S. Department of Energy, using Hunter Douglas Duette Honeycomb Shades can save homeowners up to 15% on their annual energy bill. 

Additionally, motorized shades reduce energy usage by managing daylight effortlessly. Our certified technicians can program your shades to open in the morning, letting in the diffuse light of the sun and reducing the need for electric light. In the summer, south-facing shades lower when direct sunlight causes solar heat gain, controlling your home's temperature and reducing the need for air conditioning. In the winter, these shades insulate the space, keeping warm air from seeping out.

Motorized shades can also automatically close for privacy as evening arrives, after you enjoy another beautiful Bellevue sunset.
