3 Best Blinds to Keep Heat Out

The optimal window treatments can make your house more attractive, comfier and even more energy efficient. Keeping heat out during summer is a concern we frequently get questioned about, because it affects your comfort and your cooling bills.

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

Find out about our designers’ three most loved picks for the best blinds to keep the heat out.

1. Horizontal Blinds

If you are looking for the look of plantation shutters but are on a smaller budget, horizontal blinds are a great substitute. Frequently called plantation blinds, these window treatments have generously sized slats that provide outstanding temperature and light control.

If heat and humidity are an ongoing issue, we advise faux wood blinds. These blinds are manufactured from an exclusive polymer that looks like wood but can weather high temperatures without yellowing or warping.

Choose from trendy solid colors or lifelike wood grain finishes. Then, choose your favorite operating system to make moving your blinds even simpler. With PowerView®, you’ll be able to raise and lower your blinds with only a tap of your phone.

2. Panel Track Blinds

You could be thinking that vertical blinds are dated or not a good fit for your home. Fabric panel track blinds are a modern alternative that can stylishly stop bright sunlight.

In lieu having hanging slats hidden within a headrail, these wide panels are installed on tracks above and below your window. They are a good fit on the majority of window styles but are very striking on sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows.

With more than 600 fabrics to choose from, you’ll be able to settle on a color or patten that complements your home. Even better, our panel track window blinds can shield your residence and furniture from up to 70% of dangerous ultraviolet light.

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

3. Mini Blinds

If you’re seeking a reasonably priced window treatment that will last for many years while stopping high temps, look no further than our aluminum mini blinds. They’re budget friendly, simple to clean and their trendy finish complements just about any kind of home.

Cover cord holes with the exclusive de-Light™ feature from Hunter Douglas and enjoy a darker, cooler area that’s shielded from up to 70% of UV rays. When the weather has cooled down, see twice as much of your gorgeous surroundings with MagnaView®.
