Cellular shades, also called honeycomb shades, are a great pick for homeowners who are looking for more 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 generate a notable difference for families hoping for energy savings.
Honeycomb shades function by making small compartments of air that prevent heat from leaking out during the chilly season or from creeping in during the hottest days. And with possibility to pick single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can find the best match 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 greater efficiency—as a result of six layers of fabric and five insulating pockets. Or try Applause® Honeycomb Shades for triple-cell construction.
Plantation shutters are an indoor, more durable window covering. Most often created from hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings include an aspect of classic style, higher property value and heightened energy efficiency.
Because the treatments are fixed directly to the window’s frame, plantation shutters allow for fewer places for heated air to escape during the cold season. They also shade your house from heat and sun during the hotter days. They also offer better light filtering capabilities.
Made 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 options, our Classic Shutters include a wood frame and PVC louvers.
When up, Roman shades gather neatly to form a stack of shade material. When closed, they create a simple sheet of cloth between the window glass and your room. For your best bet for energy efficiency, select a heavier fabric. Louver Shop has a wide selection of fabrics to match every style and efficiency need.
