If you’re ready to learn more now, read on to find out which efficient window treatments can produce the most meaningful difference on your utility bill by boosting energy efficiency.

Cellular Shades

Cellular shades, also called honeycomb shades, are a good pick for families looking for increased energy efficiency. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, they’re the window treatment with the best R-value. A measurement of the insulating capacity of different fabrics or other elements, high R-values create a big difference for families searching for energy savings.

Honeycomb shades work by making pockets of air that prevent heat from escaping during the winter season or from creeping in during the warmer months. And with options to choose single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can select the ideal version for your family’s needs.

Take a look at your options. Louver Shop of Columbus brings added efficiency and fashion with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ option, your Duette shades provide 20 percent more efficiency—as a result of six layers of fabric and five insulating pockets. Or think about Applause® Honeycomb Shades for triple-cell construction.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are an indoor, more permanent option for your windows. Typically produced in hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings add an aspect of clean style, better property value and heightened energy efficiency.

Because plantation shutters are fixed straight to the window’s frame, plantation shutters include fewer places for warm air to seep out during the coldest days. They also shade your space from heat and sun during the warmer days. They also offer better light filtering effectiveness.

At Louver Shop of Columbus, you can select from the Heritage or Signature Shutter lines to find a beautiful fit for your house.

Made 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 options, our Classic Shutters feature a wood frame and PVC louvers.

Roman Shades

When open, Roman shades tuck neatly to create a stack of fabric. When drawn, they create a solid piece of cloth between the glass and your space. For your best chance at energy efficiency, pick a thicker textile. Louver Shop of Columbus has a range of fabrics to fit every style and efficiency need.
