What is the Best Energy Efficient Window Treatment?

By far, honeycomb shades are the most energy-efficient window treatment that will minimize the amount of inside air that escapes out your window, cutting your energy bill. For greater energy efficiency, your window treatment should be as close to the window as possible. Preferably, blinds or shades should be mounted inside the window frame. If mounting your window treatment on the inside is not an option, adding drapery panels will add more insulation in the winter and keep the cold air out and the heat in.

Depending on a number of factors such as season, light, fresh air and view, The Shutter Guy, serving the greater Charleston SC area, can help you find the perfect energy efficient window treatment that will not only save you money, but enhance the look of your home.
