If you’re interested in learning more today, read on to find out which efficient window treatments can generate the largest difference on your monthly bill by supporting energy efficiency.
Cellular shades, also known as honeycomb shades, are an exceptional pick for people looking for increased energy efficiency. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, they’re the window treatment with the greatest R-value. An analysis of the insulating capability of different substances, high R-values create a distinct difference for houses searching for energy savings.
Honeycomb shades work by collecting small chambers of air that stop warmth from leaking out during the chilly season or from coming in during the warmer months. And with potential to pick single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can choose the ideal version for your house.
Consider these options. Louver Shop of Richmond offers extra efficiency and a good look with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ feature, your Duette shades offer 20 percent higher efficiency—thanks to six layers of fabric and five insulating pockets. Or go with Applause® Honeycomb Shades for triple-cell construction.
Plantation shutters are a customized, more permanent option for your windows. Most often built from hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings add a factor of clean style, increased property value and heightened energy efficiency.
Because plantation shutters are anchored directly to the window’s frame, plantation shutters include fewer places for heated air to escape during the winter. They also protect your rooms from heat and sun during the hotter days. They also provide enhanced light filtering performance.
At Louver Shop of Richmond, you can pick from the Heritage or Signature Shutter lines to find a perfect match for your home.
Built completely of our exclusive polymer component, LouverWood® Shutters insulate up to three times more efficiently than wood. And when you prefer to have the best of both options, our Classic Shutters are made from a wood frame and PVC louvers.
When drawn open, Roman shades tuck tidily to form a stack of shade material. When drawn, they produce a solid sheet of fabric between the window glass and your house. For your best opportunity for energy efficiency, select a thicker material. Louver Shop of Richmond has a wide selection of fabrics to fit each style and efficiency need.
