As your air conditioning expenses rise in response to hot weather, you might be looking for ways to control your residence’s energy bills. Enhancing your window treatments is one way you can keep your loved ones cooler throughout hot weather.
Window treatments don’t merely make your residence look up-to-date. They can also decrease energy escapes throughout the year at your windows. About 76% of light that hits double-pane windows in the summer turns 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 keep more of your air conditioning (and heating) where it goes—inside. Because there’s a lot of solutions available, hiring a local window treatment specialist from Louver Shop of Tampa is a good place to start.
Our consultants are part of your community, so they know the climate and sort of weather you’re up against. That gives them the exclusive perk of helping you locate the right fit for your house during a free consultation.
In the meantime, here are our recommendations for the top window treatments in Tampa for blocking warmth.
Plantation shutters are a good way to stop summertime warmth and could even decrease your cooling expenses. For the highest energy efficiency, we recommend our LouverWood® plantation shutters.
These premium faux wood plantation shutters are made from a solid polymer. This low-upkeep material insulates up to three times better than wood. And it can withstand high temperatures and humidity without warping or flaking.
We make it a breeze to individualize 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 assembly and pro installation.
We produce all our plantation shutters here in the U.S., so you’ll have them much faster. And we guarantee they’ll stay gorgeous for many years.
Our honeycomb shades are among the most energy-efficient window treatments, particularly for tall windows. These shades have insulating compartments that retain air to decrease warmth from your windows. As a consequence, you may learn your house remains cooler even with a higher thermostat setting.
These cellular shades can be ordered in single-, double- and triple-cell styles. The more cells you select, the greater the energy efficiency you’ll get.
Duette® honeycomb shades are the best energy-efficient honeycomb shades you can find. They’re designed with six layers of fabric and five insulating air chambers. And with the LightLock™ system, you can soak up or deflect just about all incoming hot sunlight.
When you partner with Louver Shop of Tampa, you’ll receive the largest collection of fabric colors and patterns for your personalized shades. Ask your consultant for more information about customizing your shades with PowerView® automation. This smart home technology allows you to move or schedule your window treatments with an app on your web-enabled device.
Horizontal blinds are a budget-friendly approach to [[stop|keep out|block summertime warmth. One of our most desired styles, EverWood® horizontal blinds, gives your rooms the appearance of plantation shutters at an affordable price.
These faux wood blinds are created from polymer, an energy-efficient material that withstands strong sunlight, extreme temperatures and high humidity. Polymer also stops distortion, losing color and staining better than all-wood blinds.
EverWood blinds are available in many realistic wood finishes, from white to dark brown TruGrain®. They can also be upgraded with de-Light™ to deflect more daylight and PowerView to make enjoying them easier than ever.
