Accordia™ Shades Guide

A Shade More Efficient

Loss of energy through windows can account for 10 to 20 percent of a home's heating and cooling costs. Only Levolor provides a full line of energy efficient, beautifully matched fabrics that easily blend and coordinate with your existing home décor. When choosing a cellular shade for your home, both R-Value and solar heat gain (SHGC) should be considered since both factors are used to calculate how a shade can reduce your heating and cooling costs. Levolor's exclusive Energy Shield™ works to address both. Energy Shield provides additional insulation and eliminates air flow through the shade while providing filtered light. It comes standard on our Sheer Efficiency™ collection and can be added to our Light Filtering Designer Textures and Designers Colours Collections.
