If you’re eager to learn more right away, keep reading to find out which efficient window treatments can produce the most noticeable difference on your electric bill by promoting energy efficiency.
Cellular shades, or honeycomb shades, are a great pick for anyone who is looking for better energy efficiency. As shown by the U.S. Department of Energy, cellular shades are the window treatment with the best R-value. A measurement of the insulating power of different materials, high R-values make a notable difference for homes searching for energy savings.
Honeycomb shades function by creating pockets of air that keep warm air from disappearing out the window during the cold 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 best match for your space.
Want some options? Louver Shop of Columbia offers additional efficiency and fashion with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ selection, your Duette shades can give 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 are an interior, more permanent window covering. Generally built from hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings include a factor of timeless style, higher property value and boosted energy efficiency.
Because the treatments are mounted straight to the window’s frame, plantation shutters create fewer places for warmth to seep out during the chilly season. They also insulate your home from heat and sun during the hottest days. They also deliver better light filtering effectiveness.
At Louver Shop of Columbia, you can choose from the Heritage or Signature Shutter lines to find a good match for your house.
Created fully from our exclusive polymer component, LouverWood® Shutters insulate up to three times more thoroughly than wood. And when you prefer to have the best of both options, our Classic Shutters have a wood frame and PVC louvers.
When up, Roman shades tuck tidily to create a stack of material. When drawn, they create a simple piece of fabric between the window glass and your room. For your best opportunity for energy efficiency, pick a thicker weave. Louver Shop of Columbia has a collection of fabrics to match each style and efficiency need.
