As your cooling bills go up because of warm weather, you might be thinking how you can control your home’s utility costs. Enhancing your window treatments is one way you can keep your loved ones more comfortable during warm weather.
Window treatments don’t just make your rooms look attractive. They can also block energy loss all year at your windows. About 76% of sunlight that hits double-pane windows in the summer is transformed 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 retain more of your AC (and warmth) where it goes—inside. As there’s a lot of options out there, hiring a local window treatment pro from Louver Shop of San Antonio is a great place to get started.
Our pros are part of your community, so they get the climate and kind of weather you have. That gives them the unique perk of helping you choose the right option for your house during a free consultation.
In the meantime, here are our suggestions for the ideal window treatments in San Antonio for stopping humidity.
Plantation shutters are a good way to deflect summertime humidity and might even decrease your utility costs. For the highest energy efficiency, we recommend our LouverWood® plantation shutters.
These exclusive faux wood plantation shutters are created from a solid polymer. This low-maintenance material insulates up to three times better than wood. And it can endure soaring temperatures and humidity without curving or flaking.
We make it easy to personalize your LouverWood shutters. You select the color, louver size and frame style when we meet for our free consultation. Then we’ll take it from there with custom production and professional installation.
We make all our plantation shutters here in the United States, so you’ll receive them much faster. And we guarantee they’ll continue to be attractive for years.
Our honeycomb shades are one of the most energy-efficient options, particularly for wide windows. These shades have insulating pockets that retain air to reduce warmth from your windows. Consequently, you could learn your home keeps cooler despite a higher thermostat setting.
These cellular shades can be ordered in single-, double- and triple-cell styles. The more cells you want, the better the energy efficiency you’ll receive.
Duette® honeycomb shades are the highest energy-efficient honeycomb shades you can find. They’re created with six layers of fabric and five insulating air compartments. And with the LightLock™ system, you can absorb or deflect just about all incoming warm sunlight.
