Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is on everyone’s mind these days.

And of course those customers who know me, have likely been exposed to my humorous side on occasion.

So how’s this for some baaaddd energy puns?

What did the Michigan wind farm say when it met Governor Jennifer Granholm?
We’re big fans of yours…

What’s the best way to charge a car battery?
With a credit card.

What did the 600 kilowatt Traverse City Light and Power wind turbine say to the smaller 15 kilowatt wind turbine?
Trick question: TCL&P’s wind turbine doesn’t talk. It whispers.

Okay. Before you get the hook, indulge me.

Here at Trend we’re practicing our own form of energy efficiency. It comes with our HunterDouglas line of Duette® honeycomb shades. First developed by HunterDouglas in 1985 in response to the energy crisis of the late 70’s, the Duette line has been popular with customers seeking energy savings in their window treatments.

Recently HunterDouglas has also introduced its Duette Architella Collection®. A novel patented technique allows honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb construction. This innovation not only helps you and your family to be more comfortable in our Northern Michigan climes, but also over the seasons save on heating as well as cooling costs. And there’s something else you should know: the Architella is eligible for a federal tax credit this year.

You’re invited to stop by the store to see these window coverings. And while you’re here, browse our HunterDouglas Gallery collection. We offer the industry’s largest selection of energy-efficient, custom-made window treatments. They’re designed and assembled in the U.S., and backed by a lifetime guarantee.

The welcome mat is always out and we hope to see you soon….
