If you’re interested in learning more right away, read on to find out which efficient window treatments can produce the most meaningful difference on your electric bill by boosting energy efficiency.

Cellular Shades

Cellular shades, or honeycomb shades, are a strong pick for people looking for increased energy efficiency. as reported by the U.S. Department of Energy, they’re the window treatment with the best R-value. A measurement of the insulating function of different substances, high R-values create a big difference for families looking for energy savings.

Honeycomb shades work by forming small compartments of air that stop heat from slipping out during the winter season or from getting in during the summer. And with options to choose single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can choose the ideal fit for your family’s needs.

Want some options? Louver Shop of Louisville offers added efficiency and fashion with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ option, your Duette shades provide 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

Plantation shutters are an indoor, more durable option for your windows. Most often created from hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings offer an element of classic style, better property value and heightened energy efficiency.

Because they are mounted straight to the window’s frame, plantation shutters include fewer places for heated air to slip out during the coldest days. They also insulate your space from heat and sunlight during the hotter days. They also offer enhanced light filtering effectiveness.

At Louver Shop of Louisville, you can choose from the Heritage or Signature Shutter lines to discover a beautiful fit for your home.

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

Roman Shades

When open, Roman shades tuck cleanly to make a stack of fabric. When down, they become a simple sheet of cloth between the window glass and your house. For your best opportunity for energy efficiency, try for a more substantial textile. Louver Shop of Louisville has a range of fabrics to match any style and efficiency need.
