Cellular Shades

Cellular shades, also called honeycomb shades, are an excellent pick for families looking for better energy efficiency. as reported by the U.S. Department of Energy, they’re the window treatment with the highest R-value. A calculation of the insulating capability of different materials, high R-values produce a notable difference for people looking for energy savings.

Honeycomb shades function by creating small compartments of air that stop heat from slipping out during the chilly season or from creeping in during the warmer months. And with potential to choose single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can choose the best version for your space.

Consider these options. Louver Shop of San Antonio brings added efficiency and fashion with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ option, your Duette shades provide 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

Plantation shutters are an indoor, more permanent window treatment. Usually produced in hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings include an aspect of timeless style, higher property value and expanded energy efficiency.

Because they are fixed straight to the window’s frame, plantation shutters include fewer places for warmth to seep out during the winter. They also shade your house from heat and light during the hottest days. They also provide enhanced light filtering capabilities.

At Louver Shop of San Antonio, you can select from the Heritage or Signature Shutter lines to create a great match for your home.

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

Roman Shades

When up, Roman shades tuck tidily to form a stack of fabric. When drawn, they produce a single piece of cloth between the window glass and your home. For your best opportunity for energy efficiency, choose a heavier fabric. Louver Shop of San Antonio has a wide selection of fabrics to work with any style and efficiency need.
