Energy Efficient Shades, Blinds & Window Treatments

  • Be kind to your pocketbook, lower bills
  • Reduce energy needs
  • Thermal picks maintain inside temps
  • Absorb outside heat & cold
  • Block UV rays, protect furnishings

Add energy efficiency to your home by choosing the right window coverings. An insulating window shade will quickly pay for itself by lowering your heating and cooling bills. Cellular shades are the best insulator with year-round efficiency, and shutters are also a great choice. Roman shades and custom drapery with thermal lining also provide good insulation. Remember that shades must be closed to provide insulation, so choose a fabric opacity that fits your lighting needs. Solar screen shades provide view-through and summertime efficiency but should be paired with another treatment for nighttime privacy and winter insulation.

"Great solar shades"

By charlie from Meadow Vista

They look great, are easy to install, and work well.  It is hard to tell they are down, but they filter the sun very well.

"Great Service!"

By Capt Dave from FL

Spent a lot of time searching for a solution to strong sun onto my screened in deck.  The 10% material worked perfectly! When I received them they were the wrong length...I had made a typo when ordering! Was amazed that they replaced them with absolutely no hassle.  I am a customer for life!!
