Try These 7 Window Coverings to Help You Save Energy

While your windows make sure your home has light and scenery to enjoy, they’re not without their faults. Windows can also be one of the main sources of heating and cooling loss, but that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with pricey energy bills. Many window treatments are developed with energy efficiency in mind. In fact, you have your choice when it comes to styles, colors and other details.

In particular, shades and shutters will help form an insulating shield between your home and the temperatures outdoors. While some treatments could work better than others, energy efficiency isn’t the only priority. Fortunately, you have help choosing which treatments to go with. A free virtual or in-home consultation can pair you with a design expert prepared to transform your ideas into reality.

Insulate Your Home with Honeycomb Shades

Who said saving energy meant you had to sacrifice style? Honeycomb shades, also called cellular shades, offer practical benefits such as light control and energy efficiency. They use pockets of air trapped between single, double or triple-cell shades to block out light, heat and even sound. You can even include a motorized control system for maximum convenience.

1. Applause® Honeycomb Shades are a fan favorite because homeowners love the triple-cell construction. You can pick between vertical or horizonal orientation as well as the color and fabric material.

2. Duette® Honeycomb Shades are the most energy-efficient honeycomb shades around. Compare the four pleat sizes until you find the one you like and consider enhancing these shades with LightLock™ or Duolite® systems. They can provide outstanding blackout and light-diffusion benefits.

Roman Shades Offer Clean, Simple Energy Efficiency

Roman shades are another great option for creating a layer of protection between you and the outdoors. These shades are minimalist enough to not draw excessive attention while providing enough detail and texture to look great regardless. Roman shades are available in a variety of fabrics and colors, and you can even customize the opacity, such as with Vignette Roman Shades. If you’d like to strike a balance between energy efficiency and scenery, a new set of Roman shades might be the way to go.

3. Provenance® Woven Wood Shades are perfect for someone who enjoys nature without all the dirt and animals that comes with it. These attractive bamboo shades can be fitted with light-filtering liners for more control over light and privacy.

4. Solera® Soft Shades might be your preferred pick if you like the look of a Roman shade and the energy efficiency of honeycomb shades. The insulating pockets can even help muffle noise from outside.

Maximize Your Energy Efficiency with Plantation Shutters

For even higher energy efficiency, a new set of custom shutters gets the job done better than other window treatments. Shutters offer a sense of splendor and refinement, calling to mind upscale country manors. You can fine-tune your shutters by color, louver size and even architectural details for window treatments that suit the space perfectly.

5. Traditional Wood Shutters are worthwhile if you want true authenticity. These interior shutters are manufactured with durable, furniture-grade basswood and highlight historically accurate 1¼” miniature louvers.

6. Classic Plantation Shutters merge the beauty of a wood shutter with the energy efficiency of polymer. These shutters are built with premium materials and can be customized.

7. LouverWood® Plantation Shutters are the ultimate solution for the energy-minded homeowner. These beautiful plantation shutters offer three times the insulation versus wood shutters. For those wanting the most stylish energy-efficient shutters around, LouverWood is the way to go.
