Stop the Heat with These 3 Great Window Treatments in Baltimore

As your cooling costs increase in response to warm weather, you may be thinking how you can control your residence’s electrical expenses. Modernizing your window treatments is one way you can keep your family cozier throughout warm weather.

Window treatments don’t only make your house look good. They can also stop energy leaks throughout the year at your windows. About 76% of light that falls on double-pane windows in the summer is converted into heat, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. During the winter, the DOE says your windows can lose about 30% of your heating.

The ideal window treatment can retain more of your cooling (and heat) where it belongs—in your residence. As there’s a wide variety of possibilities available, partnering with a local window treatment pro from Louver Shop of Maryland is a smart place to begin.

Our pros are members of your community, so they get the climate and kind of weather you deal with. That gives them the exclusive advantage of helping you find the best solution for your residence during a free consultation.

In the meantime, here are our recommendations for the top window treatments in Baltimore for blocking heat.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a good way to block summertime humidity and could even decrease your energy expenses. For the best energy efficiency, we recommend our LouverWood™ plantation shutters.

These premium faux wood plantation shutters are created from a solid polymer. This low-maintenance material protects against heat up to three times better than wood. And it can put up with high heat and humidity without buckling or cracking.

We make it simple 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 production and professional installation.

We make all our plantation shutters here in the United States, so you’ll have them much more rapidly. And we pledge they’ll stay attractive for a long time.

Honeycomb Shades

 

Our honeycomb shades are one of the highly energy-efficient shades, especially for large windows. These shades are made with insulating chambers that retain air to limit heat from your windows. Consequently, you could find your home remains more comfortable in spite of a higher thermostat setting.

These cellular shades can be ordered in single-, double- and triple-cell styles. The more cells you choose, the better the energy efficiency you’ll receive.

Duette® honeycomb shades are the most energy-efficient honeycomb shades you can get. They’re designed with six layers of fabric and five insulating air chambers. And with the LightLock™ system, you can absorb or deflect virtually all incoming warm sunlight.

When you partner with Louver Shop of Maryland, you’ll receive the largest selection of fabric colors and patterns for your personalized shades. Ask your pro for more details about upgrading your shades with PowerView® automation. This smart home technology can move or schedule your shades with an app on your web-enabled device.

Horizontal Blinds

 

Horizontal blinds are an economical way to [[stop|keep out|block summertime heat. One of our most desired styles, EverWood® horizontal blinds, gives your home the appearance of plantation shutters at an affordable price.

These faux wood blinds are made from polymer, an energy-efficient material that withstands strong sunlight, extreme temperatures and high humidity. Polymer also blocks bending, bleaching and yellowing better than genuine wood blinds.

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