What Are the Most Energy-Efficient Window Treatments for Huntsville?

At Louver Shop of North Alabama, we have more to our window treatments than merely gorgeous looks. The correct shutters, blinds or shades can help make any residence in Huntsville cozier—and allow you to decrease energy costs.

Regardless if you’re more excited about dimming bright light or stopping heating or cooling from disappearing out the window during the colder nights, your Louver Shop of North Alabama representative will start to understand your preferred options during your free, in-home consultation. And we’ll show you several recommendations to ponder, all from the comfort of your house.

If you’re ready to learn more right away, keep reading to see which efficient window treatments can create the biggest difference on your electric bill by supporting energy efficiency.

Cellular Shades

Cellular shades, or honeycomb shades, are a good pick for people looking for more energy efficiency. As shown by the U.S. Department of Energy, honeycomb shades are the window treatment with the highest R-value. A measurement of the insulating capability of different fabrics or other elements, high R-values produce a noticeable difference for families searching for energy savings.

Honeycomb shades function by forming small chambers of air that keep heat from leaking out during the chilly season or from getting in during the summer. And with options to choose single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can create the ideal match for your family’s needs.

Consider these options. Louver Shop of North Alabama provides extra efficiency and a good look with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ selection, your Duette shades provide 20 percent higher efficiency—thanks to six layers of fabric and five insulating pockets. Or consider Applause® Honeycomb Shades for triple-cell construction.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are an interior, long-lasting window treatment. Typically made of hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings include a factor of clean style, increased property value and expanded energy efficiency.

Because the treatments are anchored right to the window’s frame, plantation shutters include fewer places for heated air to leak out during the coldest days. They also insulate your rooms from heat and sunlight during the hottest days. They also provide enhanced light filtering performance.

At Louver Shop of North Alabama, you can choose from the Heritage or Signature Shutter lines to create a beautiful look for your family.

Created entirely of our exclusive polymer component, LouverWood™ Shutters insulate up to three times better 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.

Roman Shades

When open, Roman shades tuck neatly to create a stack of shade material. When down, they create a simple layer of material between your window and your house. For your best bet for energy efficiency, pick a heavier textile. Louver Shop of North Alabama has a wide selection of fabrics to fit each style and efficiency need.
