If you’re eager to learn more today, continue reading to hear which efficient window treatments can make the largest difference on your energy bill by boosting energy efficiency.
Cellular shades, also called honeycomb shades, are a strong pick for people looking for better energy efficiency. As shown by the U.S. Department of Energy, they’re the window treatment with the highest R-value. An analysis of the insulating power of different substances, high R-values create a notable difference for people hoping for energy savings.
Honeycomb shades function by collecting small chambers of air that prevent warmth from slipping out during the winter season or from entering during the hottest days. And with the ability to select single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can create the right version for your space.
Consider these options. Louver Shop of Charlotte provides more efficiency and a good look with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ feature, your Duette shades provide 20 percent more efficiency—due to six layers of fabric and five insulating pockets. Or try Applause® Honeycomb Shades for triple-cell construction.
Plantation shutters are an interior, more durable option for your windows. Typically produced in hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings include an element of classic style, better property value and heightened energy efficiency.
Because they are fastened directly to the window’s frame, plantation shutters have fewer places for heated air to escape during the cold season. They also defend your house from heat and light during the warmest days. They also provide enhanced light filtering performance.
At Louver Shop of Charlotte, you can select from the Heritage or Signature Shutter lines to find a great look for your home.
Created fully from our exclusive polymer material, LouverWood® Shutters insulate up to three times more efficiently than wood. And when you have to have the best of both solutions, our Classic Shutters feature a wood frame and PVC louvers.
When open, Roman shades fold neatly to create a stack of material. When down, they become a single piece of material between your window and your house. For your best opportunity for energy efficiency, pick a heavier material. Louver Shop of Charlotte has a wide selection of fabrics to fit every style and efficiency need.
