3 Top Window Treatments in Albany that Stop Summer Warmth

As your cooling expenses increase because of warm weather, you may be looking for ways to control your house’s electrical costs. Updating your window treatments is one method you can keep your household more comfortable all through hot weather.

Window treatments don’t only make your residence look good. They can also decrease energy leaks throughout the year at your windows. About 76% of sunshine that reaches double-pane windows in the summer turns into heat, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. In cold weather, the DOE says your windows can let out about 30% of your heating.

The ideal window treatment can keep more of your air conditioning (and heat) where it belongs—inside. Because there’s a lot of choices to select from, hiring a local window treatment specialist from Louver Shop of South Georgia is a good place to start.

Our specialists live in your community, so they know the climate and sort of weather you’re up against. That gives them the special advantage of helping you choose the ideal solution for your home during a free consultation.

In the meantime, here are our recommendations for the ideal window treatments in Albany for diverting warmth.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a fantastic way to block summertime heat and might even lower your cooling expenses. For the highest energy efficiency, we suggest our LouverWood® plantation shutters.

These select faux wood plantation shutters are crafted from a solid polymer. This low-maintenance material shields against heat up to three times better than wood. And it can withstand soaring temps and humidity without curving or flaking.

We make it simple to individualize your LouverWood shutters. You select the color, louver size and frame style during our free consultation. Then we’ll handle it from there with custom manufacturing and pro installation.

We manufacture all our plantation shutters here in the United States, so you’ll have them much more quickly. And we promise they’ll continue to be attractive for a long time.

Honeycomb Shades

 

Our honeycomb shades are one of the best energy-efficient shades, particularly for large windows. These shades are made with insulating chambers that hold air to decrease heat from your windows. Consequently, you could find your home keeps cooler even with a higher thermostat setting.

These cellular shades are available in single-, double- and triple-cell styles. The more cells you choose, the better the energy efficiency you’ll receive.

Duette® honeycomb shades are the best energy-efficient honeycomb shades you can get. They’re made with six layers of fabric and five insulating air chambers. And with the LightLock™ system, you can soak up or stop just about all incoming hot sunlight.

When you work with Louver Shop of South Georgia, you’ll get the biggest selection of fabric colors and patterns for your personalized shades. Ask your pro for more information about upgrading your shades with PowerView® automation. This smart home technology allows you to move or schedule your window treatments with an app on your web-enabled device.

Horizontal Blinds

 

Horizontal blinds are a budget-friendly method to [[stop|keep out|block summertime heat. One of our most ordered styles, EverWood® horizontal blinds, gives your space the appearance of plantation shutters at an affordable price.

These faux wood blinds are manufactured from polymer, an energy-efficient material that withstands harsh sunlight, hot temperatures and high humidity. Polymer also resists bending, losing color and yellowing better than all-wood blinds.

EverWood blinds can be customized in many natural-looking wood finishes, from white to dark brown TruGrain®. They can also be upgraded with de-Light™ to block more natural light and PowerView to make using them simpler than ever.
