Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency Cellular Shades

Cellular blinds are rated as one of the best energy-efficient window treatments. They have one or two layers of cell compartments that look like honeycombs, which trap air. The insulated cellular shade has all window coverings’ most outstanding R values. The top-down, bottom-up shade is the most effective of this sort. This will provide you the most control to allow light into the home. Consider cellular shades if you want your window coverings to save you a lot of energy.

Energy Efficiency Solar Shades

Another very energy-efficient window treatment is solar shading. They are available in varying openness, allowing for various levels of visibility and UV protection. The fabric weave becomes looser as the transparency increases, enabling increased visibility and offering the lowest UV protection. The fabric weave will be tighter the lower the openness. The most negligible visibility will be possible, but the most UV protection will be possible. Solar shades work well as a roller shade in combination with a decorative valance or side drapery panels to dress up the window.

Custom Drapes and Curtains

Custom-made curtains that fit your window perfectly are incredibly energy-efficient. This tailored fit will block the most amount of light. Flannel and privacy linings come in second place, with blackout lining adding the highest energy efficiency. Close curtains during the hottest part of the day to maximize energy efficiency.

Roman and Roller Shades

Roller and Roman shades are custom-made to suit your window’s measurements. This custom-fit will enable you to control the light entering your home better. Roman shades can also be manufactured with a top-down, bottom-up feature for optimal light control in the house. Denser fabrics or blackout options will provide the most energy efficiency. This design can also be very decorative, as it is available in various contemporary and fashionable prints and solids.

Woodlore Shutters

For households that wish to make a strong statement, Woodlore Shutters are ideal. Their fine quality and beauty will bring refinement and warmth to any space, and their movable louvers also serve as an excellent window option for energy conservation. To change how much light enters your room and hence the temperature, move the louvers at different times of the day or night.

Energy-efficient window treatments don’t have to seem ultra-modern to provide the benefits of Today’s technology. A classy addition to any home, Woodlore Shutters are highly desirable for their classic design and lovely wood composite finish. These shutters are ideal for replacing outdated window treatments in attractive spaces with modern, energy-efficient ones.

Switch to Window Treatment Energy Efficiency!

Window treatments that are internally attached to a window offer several advantages beyond fashion and beauty, like:

  • Increase energy efficiency.
  • Increase the worth of your house.
  • Improve the comfort of your living areas.
  • Minimize glare.
  • Enhance privacy protections.


Saving money is one of the main advantages of energy-efficient coverings for windows. Energy-efficient window coverings can save annual energy costs by preventing heat gain from the sun. Energy-efficient window treatments can significantly reduce the amount of solar heat gain during the hot summer months when air conditioning is operating continuously, and temperatures are high. These window coverings reduce wind and solar gain, lowering monthly utility costs.

Improved comfort and fewer glares are two additional advantages of energy-efficient window coverings. Modern technology allows for energy-efficient window treatments specifically made to cut down on solar heat gain and deflect the sun’s damaging UV rays. Blocking out drafts from the outside keeps your house warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, and direct sunlight’s bothersome glare is likewise lessened.
