As your AC costs rise due to summer weather, you might be wondering how you can control your house’s energy expenses. Modernizing your window treatments is one approach you can keep your family more comfortable all through warm weather.
Window treatments don’t merely make your house look stylish. They can also block energy escapes year-round at your windows. About 76% of sunshine that reaches double-pane windows in the summer is transformed into heat, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. During the winter, the DOE says your windows can let out about 30% of your heating.
The right window treatment can keep more of your cooling (and heating) where it goes—in your residence. Since there’s a wide variety of possibilities available, working with a local window treatment professional from Louver Shop of Charlotte is a wise place to get started.
Our specialists live in your community, so they get the climate and kind of weather you have. That gives them the exclusive benefit of helping you find the right solution for your residence during a free consultation.
In the meantime, here are our picks for the best window treatments in Charlotte for blocking heat.
Plantation shutters are a good way to deflect summertime warmth and may even lower your energy costs. For the highest energy efficiency, we suggest our LouverWood® plantation shutters.
These exclusive faux wood plantation shutters are created from a solid polymer. This low-maintenance material shields against heat up to three times better than wood. And it can put up with extreme temperatures and humidity without warping or peeling.
We make it simple to customize your LouverWood shutters. You choose the color, louver size and frame style when we meet for our free consultation. Then we’ll take care of it from there with custom manufacturing and pro installation.
We manufacture all our plantation shutters here in the USA, so you’ll receive them much more quickly. And we promise they’ll stay gorgeous for a long time.
Our honeycomb shades are included in the highly energy-efficient options, particularly for tall windows. These shades are made with insulating compartments that retain air to reduce heat from your windows. As a result, you could discover your house remains cooler despite a higher thermostat setting.
These cellular shades can be ordered in single-, double- and triple-cell styles. The more cells you choose, the higher the energy efficiency you’ll receive.
Duette® honeycomb shades are the most energy-efficient honeycomb shades you can customize. They’re created with six layers of fabric and five insulating air chambers. And with the LightLock™ system, you can take in or stop virtually all incoming hot sunlight.
