If you’re interested in learning more right away, read on to hear which efficient window treatments can make the biggest difference on your utility bill by increasing energy efficiency.

Cellular Shades

Cellular shades, also known as honeycomb shades, are a great pick for homeowners who are looking for increased energy efficiency. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, honeycomb shades are the window treatment with the greatest R-value. An analysis of the insulating power of different substances, high R-values create a noticeable difference for homes looking for energy savings.

Honeycomb shades operate by forming small compartments of air that stop heat from escaping during the winter season or from entering during the warmer months. And with potential to select single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can choose the right match for your needs.

Take a look at your options. Louver Shop of Myrtle Beach offers additional efficiency and a good look with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ selection, your Duette shades offer 20 percent greater efficiency—as a result of six layers of fabric and five insulating pockets. Or go with Applause® Honeycomb Shades for triple-cell construction.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are an indoor, more durable window treatment. Usually built from hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings add a factor of timeless style, increased property value and heightened energy efficiency.

Because they are fastened directly to the window’s frame, plantation shutters include fewer places for warmth to escape during the coldest days. They also insulate your rooms from heat and sun during the warmer days. They also provide better light filtering capabilities.

At Louver Shop of Myrtle Beach, you can choose from the Heritage or Signature Shutter lines to discover a good match for your family.

Built entirely of our exclusive polymer material, LouverWood™ Shutters insulate up to three times more efficiently than wood. And when you prefer to have the best of both solutions, our Classic Shutters have a wood frame and PVC louvers.

Roman Shades

When up, Roman shades gather tidily to make a stack of material. When drawn, they create a single layer of material between the window glass and your room. For your best bet for energy efficiency, pick a thicker material. Louver Shop of Myrtle Beach has a wide selection of fabrics to fit each style and efficiency need.
