Cellular shades, also known as honeycomb shades, are an exceptional pick for families looking for increased energy efficiency. As shown by the U.S. Department of Energy, honeycomb shades are the window treatment with the best R-value. A calculation of the insulating capability of different materials, high R-values produce a notable difference for people searching for energy savings.
Honeycomb shades operate by creating pockets of air that stop warm temperatures from escaping during the chilly season or from coming in during the summer. And with the ability to select single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can create the perfect fit for your needs.
Interested in your options? Louver Shop of South Georgia offers additional efficiency and style with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ option, your Duette shades can give 20 percent higher efficiency—due to six layers of fabric and five insulating pockets. Or think about Applause® Honeycomb Shades for triple-cell construction.
Plantation shutters are a customized, more permanent window covering. Generally created from hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings offer a factor of timeless style, better property value and boosted energy efficiency.
Because the treatments are mounted directly to the window’s frame, plantation shutters have fewer places for warmth to leak out during the chilly season. They also insulate your rooms from heat and sun during the hotter days. They also deliver better light filtering performance.
At Louver Shop of South Georgia, you can choose from the Heritage or Signature Shutter lines to find a good match for your house.
Made fully from our exclusive polymer substance, 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 are comprised of a wood frame and PVC louvers.
When open, Roman shades tuck tidily to create a stack of fabric. When closed, they produce a single sheet of material between the glass and your space. For your best bet for energy efficiency, select a heavier fabric. Louver Shop of South Georgia has a variety of fabrics to work with any style and efficiency need.
