Cellular Shades

Cellular shades, also known as honeycomb shades, are an excellent pick for families looking for more energy efficiency. as reported by the U.S. Department of Energy, they’re the window treatment with the highest R-value. A measurement of the insulating function of different substances, high R-values create a real difference for homes looking for energy savings.

Honeycomb shades operate by creating small chambers of air that stop warm air from leaking out during the cold season or from entering during the summer. And with possibility to pick single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can select the perfect fit for your home.

Want some options? Louver Shop of Pittsburgh offers extra efficiency and style with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ selection, your Duette shades offer 20 percent higher efficiency—as a result of six layers of fabric and five insulating pockets. Or go with Applause® Honeycomb Shades for triple-cell construction.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are an indoor, long-lasting option for your windows. Typically built from hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings offer an element of classic style, increased property value and boosted energy efficiency.

Because they are fixed straight to the window’s frame, plantation shutters have fewer places for heated air to slip out during the cold season. They also protect your house from heat and sunlight during the warmer days. They also deliver better light filtering effectiveness.

At Louver Shop of Pittsburgh, you can choose from the Heritage or Signature Shutter lines to discover a beautiful fit for your house.

Built entirely of our exclusive polymer substance, LouverWood™ Shutters insulate up to three times better than wood. And when you need to have the best of both options, our Classic Shutters have a wood frame and PVC louvers.

Roman Shades

When up, Roman shades gather tidily to make a stack of material. When drawn, they form a simple sheet of cloth between your window and your house. For your best bet for energy efficiency, pick a more substantial fabric. Louver Shop of Pittsburgh has a variety of fabrics to work with each style and efficiency need.
