If you’re eager to learn more right away, read on to find out which efficient window treatments can create the most substantial difference on your utility bill by promoting energy efficiency.
Cellular shades, also called honeycomb shades, are a good pick for people looking for better energy efficiency. As shown by the U.S. Department of Energy, honeycomb shades are the window treatment with the best R-value. An analysis of the insulating capacity of different fabrics or other elements, high R-values produce a noticeable difference for homes searching for energy savings.
Honeycomb shades work by creating small compartments of air that keep warm temperatures from escaping during the cold season or from coming in during the warmer months. And with potential to choose single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can select the ideal fit for your space.
Interested in your options? Louver Shop of Austin provides more efficiency and a good look with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ feature, your Duette shades can give 20 percent more efficiency—thanks to six layers of fabric and five insulating pockets. Or consider Applause® Honeycomb Shades for triple-cell construction.
Plantation shutters are a customized, more permanent window covering. Typically built from hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings add an element of clean style, higher property value and heightened energy efficiency.
Because they are anchored directly to the window’s frame, plantation shutters have fewer places for warm air to escape during the winter. They also protect your rooms from heat and light during the warmer days. They also provide enhanced light filtering capabilities.
At Louver Shop of Austin, you can pick from the Heritage or Signature Shutter lines to discover a great look for your style.
Built fully from our exclusive polymer material, LouverWood® Shutters insulate up to three times better than wood. And when you want to have the best of both worlds, our Classic Shutters feature a wood frame and PVC louvers.
When drawn open, Roman shades tuck neatly to create a stack of shade material. When drawn, they become a single piece of fabric between the glass and your space. For your best chance at energy efficiency, select a heavier weave. Louver Shop of Austin has a variety of fabrics to work with every style and efficiency need.
