What Are the Most Energy-Efficient Window Treatments?

At Louver Shop of Orlando, there is more to our window treatments than only gorgeous looks. The right shutters, blinds or shades may help make a home in Orlando more pleasant—and help you cut energy costs.

Regardless if you’re more curious about blocking out bright sun or stopping heating or cooling from disappearing out the window during the colder days, your Louver Shop of Orlando consultant will ask about your preferred options during your free, in-home consultation. And we can show you a couple of suggestions to reflect on, all from the comfort of your couch.

If you’re ready to learn more now, read on to see which efficient window treatments can generate the most substantial difference on your monthly bill by promoting energy efficiency.

Cellular Shades

Cellular shades, also known as honeycomb shades, are an excellent pick for people looking for more energy efficiency. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, honeycomb shades are the window treatment with the highest R-value. A measurement of the insulating capacity of different substances, high R-values produce a distinct difference for families hoping for energy savings.

Honeycomb shades work by making small chambers of air that keep warmth from leaking out during the chilly season or from coming in during the warmer months. And with options to pick single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can select the right match for your home.

Take a look at your options. Louver Shop of Orlando provides added efficiency and a good look with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ feature, your Duette shades can give 20 percent more efficiency—due to six layers of fabric and five insulating pockets. Or go with Applause® Honeycomb Shades for triple-cell construction.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are an interior, more durable window covering. Generally created from hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings add an element of clean style, higher property value and expanded energy efficiency.

Because plantation shutters are anchored straight to the window’s frame, plantation shutters include fewer places for warm air to leak out during the coldest days. They also defend your space from heat and sun during the hotter days. They also offer better light filtering capabilities.

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

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

Roman Shades

When up, Roman shades gather cleanly to form a stack of shade material. When closed, they form a solid sheet of material between the window glass and your house. For your best opportunity for energy efficiency, pick a heavier material. Louver Shop of Orlando has a variety of fabrics to work with every style and efficiency need.
