Block the Heat with These 3 Great Window Treatments in Albany

As your cooling costs increase because of warm weather, you could be thinking how you can decrease your house’s electrical costs. Enhancing your window treatments is one approach you can keep your loved ones more comfortable throughout hot weather.

Window treatments don’t only make your residence look good. They can also block energy escapes throughout the year at your windows. About 76% of light that falls on 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 possibilities available, partnering with a local window treatment specialist from Louver Shop of South Georgia is a ideal 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 locate the best option for your home during a free consultation.

In the meantime, here are our recommendations for the top window treatments in Albany for diverting humidity.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a fantastic way to block summertime heat and may even lower your cooling costs. For the highest energy efficiency, we advise our LouverWood™ plantation shutters.

These premium faux wood plantation shutters are crafted from a solid polymer. This low-upkeep material protects against heat up to three times better than wood. And it can endure soaring temperatures and humidity without buckling or flaking.

We make it a breeze to personalize your LouverWood shutters. You pick 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 U.S., so you’ll get them much more quickly. And we pledge they’ll continue to be attractive for many years.

Honeycomb Shades


Our honeycomb shades are one of the best energy-efficient options, particularly for wide windows. These shades use insulating compartments that retain air to limit heat from your windows. As a consequence, 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 greater the energy efficiency you’ll receive.

Duette® honeycomb shades are the highest energy-efficient honeycomb shades you can get. They’re made with six layers of fabric and five insulating air compartments. And with the LightLock™ system, you can take in or block virtually all incoming hot sunlight.

When you work with Louver Shop of South Georgia, you’ll receive the largest selection of fabric colors and patterns for your custom 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 desired styles, EverWood® horizontal blinds, gives your rooms the style of plantation shutters at an affordable price.

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

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