Cellular shades, also known as honeycomb shades, are an exceptional pick for anyone who is looking for more energy efficiency. As shown by the U.S. Department of Energy, honeycomb shades are the window treatment with the greatest R-value. A measurement of the insulating capability of different fabrics or other elements, high R-values make a real difference for families searching for energy savings.
Honeycomb shades work by forming small compartments of air that prevent heat from escaping during the winter season or from creeping in during the hottest days. And with options to choose single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can find the right fit for your house.
Want some options? Louver Shop of Birmingham offers extra efficiency and fashion with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ selection, your Duette shades can give 20 percent greater efficiency—thanks to six layers of fabric and five insulating pockets. Or consider Applause® Honeycomb Shades for triple-cell construction.
Plantation shutters are an interior, long-lasting window treatment. Typically built from hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings offer an element of clean style, higher property value and expanded energy efficiency.
Because the treatments are mounted right to the window’s frame, plantation shutters have fewer places for heated air to escape during the cold season. They also protect your rooms from heat and sun during the warmer days. They also deliver enhanced light filtering performance.
At Louver Shop of Birmingham, you can choose from the Heritage or Signature Shutter lines to find a beautiful match for your family.
Built fully from our exclusive polymer component, LouverWood® Shutters insulate up to three times better than wood. And when you prefer to have the best of both options, our Classic Shutters include a wood frame and PVC louvers.
When drawn open, Roman shades gather cleanly to create a stack of fabric. When closed, they form a single sheet of fabric between your window and your house. For your best chance at energy efficiency, choose a more substantial weave. Louver Shop of Birmingham has a collection of fabrics to fit every style and efficiency need.
