What Are the Most Energy-Efficient Window Treatments ?

At Louver Shop, we have more to our window treatments than only impressive fashion. The right shutters, blinds or shades can help make your family’s home more comfortable—and make it easier to lower energy costs.

Regardless if you’re more concerned about blocking out bright light or preventing heating or cooling from slipping away during the chillier nights, your Louver Shop expert will ask about your wants and needs during your free, in-home consultation. And we will give you a few recommendations to mull over, all from the comfort of your living room.

If you’re ready to learn more right away, keep reading to find out which efficient window treatments can make the most meaningful difference on your electric bill by increasing energy efficiency.

Cellular Shades

Cellular shades, also called honeycomb shades, are a good pick for homeowners who are looking for more energy efficiency. As shown by the U.S. Department of Energy, they’re the window treatment with the greatest R-value. A measurement of the insulating power of different materials, high R-values generate a notable difference for families hoping for energy savings.

Honeycomb shades function by forming small compartments of air that keep heat from disappearing out the window during the cold season or from creeping in during the hottest days. And with possibility to pick single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can create the ideal version for your needs.

Interested in your options? Louver Shop offers more efficiency and a good look with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ option, your Duette shades can give 20 percent higher efficiency—as a result of six layers of fabric and five insulating pockets. Or try Applause® Honeycomb Shades for triple-cell construction.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are an indoor, more durable window treatment. Most often built from hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings add an element of classic style, increased property value and heightened energy efficiency.

Because the treatments are fixed right to the window’s frame, plantation shutters include fewer places for heated air to escape during the chilly season. They also shade your house from heat and light during the hotter days. They also offer better light filtering capabilities.

At Louver Shop, you can select from the Heritage or Signature Shutter lines to find a beautiful match for your family.

Created entirely of our exclusive polymer component, LouverWood™ Shutters insulate up to three times more efficiently than wood. And when you prefer to have the best of both worlds, our Classic Shutters include a wood frame and PVC louvers.

Roman Shades

When up, Roman shades gather neatly to form a stack of shade material. When closed, they create a simple layer of cloth between the window glass and your house. For your best bet for energy efficiency, select a heavier fabric. Louver Shop has a collection of fabrics to match every style and efficiency need.
