Green By Nature
Because windows are the greatest point of energy loss in a home, we take our commitment to sustainable development and energy consumption seriously. Elite is a proud member of the Canada Green Building Council, offering numerous energy saving and environmentally friendly window treatment products. We are actively dedicated to building greener houses, buildings and communities through our window treatments.
Reduced Energy Consumption
Choosing the right window treatment can save you on the costs of heating and cooling your home. Certain window treatments perform better than others in areas like insulation, heat protection and glare control, so it is important to understand the benefits of each product before ordering. Ask your authorized Elite dealer about the energy saving benefits our High Performance Fabrics
Elite Smart Shades™
Another way to help reduce your energy costs is to automate your window treatments with Elite Smart Shades™. Our shades can be controlled by remote control, smartphones and can even be integrated into your smart home automation system. Elite Smart Shades™ can save you energy if set on timers and especially if purchased with our sun sensor, which opens and closes your shades in response to heat and sunlight.
