Ever Considered Energy Efficient Shades?

There is no shortage of sunshine in California. Because of that, we don’t want you to take the heat. And especially in your own home. Sunlight beating down on your windows can be responsible for 75% or more of your home’s heat gain. By exploring some energy efficient shades we can help with energy savings, utility bills, and comfort.

Our Top 3 Picks for Energy Efficient Shades

  1. Cellular Shades

Duette® Honeycomb Shades

Also known as honeycomb shades, these are the best of the best. The cells at the window prevent air flow. The pockets of air get trapped and allow the temperature to be regulated.The added fabric blocks out the light so as to not increase the heat from the hot sun.

  1. Roman Shades

We are big fans of the Roman Shades. The many layers of fabric protect your home from outside heat and light. The large range of fabric customizations make this a great call for energy efficient shades.
