Which are the most energy efficient window treatments?
Window treatments are able to reduce heating and cooling costs by preventing heat transfer (either in or out).

Plantation shutters aren’t far behind, at 60%. A blackout roller shade can reduce heat transfer by up to 55%, and a venetian blind can reduce heat transfer by as much as 45%.
