Best Window Treatments for Maximizing Energy Efficiency In the Home and Office

Do you always feel like you are melting inside during the summer? Even with the AC on full blast, nothing can keep out the heat...or can it? Stop spending more than necessary on electric bills to keep your home or office comfortable. Combat the summer sun with energy-efficient window treatments for your space. Here are the best commercial and residential options.

Best Energy Efficient Window Treatments for Businesses

Solar Shades

Looking for the best window treatments for your office or corporate campus? Look no further. Solar shades are the best whole-office option. Recently, we had a client replace all of the aluminum mini-blinds with solar shades. The result? Sheer happiness.

Whether you choose manual or motorized, solar shades will conveniently shield your office from the sun's rays, improve energy efficiency, and cuts costs. Solar shades work to reduce heat fluctuation from the outside without sacrificing light. (Even when the solar shades are down, you'll be able to see the outside from your cubicle or corner office.)

Best Energy Efficient Window Treatments for Homes

When it comes to finding the best energy-efficient window treatments for your home, you've got quite a few options. Here are our three favorites.

Cellular Shades

Cellular shades are one of the most energy-efficient window coverings money can buy. Utilizing their honeycomb design, cellular shades trap air around your windows to help keep your living spaces extra cool in the summer (and warm in the winter). You can choose from a wide range of colors to match your home's decor and go cordless if you have small children or pets.


If you're going for a more elegant look but still want to maintain energy efficiency, drapes are the way to go. With thousands of fabric styles, colors, and designs, you're sure to find something you love. For extra energy savings, we recommend custom drapes with a thermal lining.


Plantation shutters are another aesthetically pleasing and energy-efficient option. Because they are built right into the window frame, this option can block airflow from getting through. Choosing from a thick material of composite or wood, you'll be able to design a window covering that complements your space.
