If you’re ready to learn more now, continue reading to see which efficient window treatments can create the most meaningful difference on your electric bill by supporting energy efficiency.
Cellular shades, also known as honeycomb shades, are a strong pick for families looking for increased energy efficiency. as reported by the U.S. Department of Energy, they’re the window treatment with the greatest R-value. A measurement of the insulating capability of different fabrics or other elements, high R-values create a distinct difference for homes hoping for energy savings.
Honeycomb shades work by making small chambers of air that keep warm air from leaking out during the winter season or from getting in during the summer. And with options to pick single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can select the perfect match for your family’s needs.
Take a look at your options. Louver Shop of Louisiana provides more efficiency and style with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ option, your Duette shades offer 20 percent more 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 interior, more durable window covering. Most often built from hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings add a factor of timeless style, better property value and heightened energy efficiency.
Because plantation shutters are anchored right to the window’s frame, plantation shutters create fewer places for heated air to seep out during the chilly season. They also protect your house from heat and sun during the warmest days. They also deliver enhanced light filtering performance.
At Louver Shop of Louisiana, you can pick from the Heritage or Signature Shutter lines to find a beautiful fit for your style.
Built fully from our exclusive polymer material, 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 tuck neatly to form a stack of material. When closed, they become a solid sheet of fabric between your window and your space. For your best bet for energy efficiency, pick a heavier textile. Louver Shop of Louisiana has a variety of fabrics to match each style and efficiency need.
