Energy-Efficient Window Treatments

With Daylight Savings Time coming up next week, we are all hoping to save a little on lower energy consumption. But for those of you who think that hour isn’t enough, we thought we’d share some of the most energy-efficient window treatment options available in case you want to go the extra mile!

Cellular Shades

Cellular shades are an excellent choice for thermal protection because they maximize window view when open and minimize sun streaming in when closed. Cellular shades are available in 3/4″ single cell, 3/8″ single and double cell, and are all available in light filtering and room darkening fabrics. If you are looking for the most energy-efficient window treatment on the market, we recommend the ⅜” double cell shade.  Cellular shades can be operated manually or motorized, so if you have a hard to reach window, motorization will allow ease of operation.

Solar Screens

If you are looking to block harmful UV rays, interior or exterior mounted solar screens are the way to go. Our solar screens are available in varying degrees of openness; 1%, 3%, 5% and 10% . You have a choice of various colors that will easily coordinate with the interior or exteriors of your home. Solar screens are a great choice for window treatment if you are looking to protect your rugs and fabrics from the hot sun. And if you have a special view, you can enjoy it every day while taking advantage of the best part about solar screens, the savings on energy consumption.

Shutters

In need of a window treatment that won’t fade or warp over time? Our interior wood and composite shutters provide attractive and long-lasting protection from the sun, as well as durability in moist environments such as bathrooms. If you’re most concerned with excessive moisture, then our composite shutter is a great option because of its resistance to fading, warping and peeling.  No matter what you are looking for, we have a shutter that’ll work for you!
