3 Best Blinds to Keep Heat Out

The ideal window treatments can make your house more attractive, more comfortable and even more energy efficient. Stopping heat during summer is a concern we frequently get questioned about, since it impacts your comfort and your cooling bills.

Blinds are a good way to keep temperatures under control and your house looking good. They also accommodate a differing range of budgets and can be highly customized, including with smart operating systems. With your vision and our expertise, Louver Shop of Charlotte can help you design custom blinds that highlight your style and your needs during your free, in-home consultation.

Learn more about our designers’ three top choices for the best blinds to keep the heat out.

1. Horizontal Blinds

If you enjoy the style of plantation shutters but are on a tighter budget, horizontal blinds are an excellent second choice. Often called plantation blinds, these window treatments have generously sized slats that deliver outstanding temperature and light control.

If heat and humidity are a continued worry, we suggest faux wood blinds. These blinds are manufactured from a proprietary polymer that looks like wood but can withstand hot temperatures without yellowing or warping.

Choose from on-trend solid colors or lifelike wood grain finishes. Then, add your favorite operating system to make using your blinds even easier. With PowerView®, you’ll be able to open and close your blinds with just a tap of your phone.

2. Panel Track Blinds

You might be thinking that vertical blinds are dated or not right for your residence. Fabric panel track blinds are a modern solution that can stylishly block bright sunlight.

Instead of having hanging slats concealed within a headrail, these wide panels are placed on tracks above and below your window. They work well on the majority of window styles but are particularly distinctive on sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows.

With more than 600 fabrics to pick from, you’ll be able to find a color or patten that complements your home. Even better, our panel track window blinds can shield your home and belongings from up to 70% of damaging ultraviolet light.

If you have young children or pets, select a cord-free wand or PowerView® operating system to make your panel track blinds even safer.

3. Mini Blinds

If you’re trying to find a reasonably priced window treatment that will last for a long time while blocking heat, look no further than our aluminum mini blinds. They’re budget friendly, simple to clean and their stylish finish complements nearly any type of home.

Hide cord holes with the exclusive de-Light™ feature from Hunter Douglas and get a darker, cooler space that’s defended from up to 70% of UV rays. When the day has gotten cooler, see twice as much of your beautiful surroundings with MagnaView®.
