If you’re eager to learn more right away, read on to find out which efficient window treatments can create the most noticeable difference on your electric bill by promoting energy efficiency.

Cellular Shades

Cellular shades, or honeycomb shades, are a good pick for people looking for better energy efficiency. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, cellular shades are the window treatment with the greatest R-value. A calculation of the insulating power of different materials, high R-values make a notable difference for homes looking for energy savings.

Honeycomb shades function by creating small compartments of air that prevent warm air from disappearing out the window during the chilly season or from creeping in during the hottest days. And with potential to pick single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can find the ideal version for your needs.

Want some options? Louver Shop of Columbia offers additional efficiency and a good look with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ selection, your Duette shades offer 20 percent greater efficiency—due to six layers of fabric and five insulating pockets. Or go with Applause® Honeycomb Shades for triple-cell construction.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are an indoor, long-lasting window covering. Generally created from hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings add a factor of timeless style, higher property value and expanded energy efficiency.

Because they are mounted straight to the window’s frame, plantation shutters create fewer places for warm air to seep out during the cold season. They also shade your home from heat and sun during the warmest days. They also provide better light filtering performance.

At Louver Shop of Columbia, you can pick from the Heritage or Signature Shutter lines to discover a great match for your family.

Created fully from our exclusive polymer component, LouverWood™ Shutters insulate up to three times more thoroughly than wood. And when you need to have the best of both options, our Classic Shutters have a wood frame and PVC louvers.

Roman Shades

When up, Roman shades tuck tidily to make a stack of fabric. When drawn, they create a simple piece of fabric between the window glass and your room. For your best opportunity for energy efficiency, select a more substantial weave. Louver Shop of Columbia has a collection of fabrics to match each style and efficiency need.
