Cellular shades, or honeycomb shades, are an excellent pick for anyone who is looking for increased energy efficiency. as reported by the U.S. Department of Energy, honeycomb shades are the window treatment with the highest R-value. An analysis of the insulating power of different fabrics or other elements, high R-values create a big difference for homes searching for energy savings.
Honeycomb shades work by creating small chambers of air that keep warm temperatures from disappearing out the window during the cold season or from creeping in during the hottest days. And with potential to choose single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can select the best match for your space.
Take a look at your options. Louver Shop of Charleston brings additional efficiency and a good look with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ selection, your Duette shades provide 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 are an interior, more permanent option for your windows. Usually built from hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings offer a factor of clean style, better property value and expanded energy efficiency.
Because they are fixed right to the window’s frame, plantation shutters create fewer places for heated air to seep out during the cold season. They also protect your rooms from heat and sun during the hottest days. They also offer improved light filtering capabilities.
