As your air conditioning bills go up as a result of hot weather, you could be looking for ways to lower your house’s utility bills. Updating your window treatments is one way you can keep your family cozier throughout warm weather.
Window treatments don’t only make your home look good. They can also stop energy loss year-round at your windows. About 76% of sunlight 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 leak about 30% of your heating.
The right window treatment can retain more of your cooling (and heat) where it belongs—in your house. As there’s a wide variety of solutions available, hiring a local window treatment expert from Louver Shop of Dallas/Fort Worth is a wise place to get started.
Our specialists live in your community, so they understand the climate and sort of weather you have. That gives them the unique perk of helping you find the right fit for your residence during a free consultation.
In the meantime, here are our picks for the top window treatments in Dallas for diverting warmth.
Plantation shutters are a fantastic way to stop summertime warmth and might even reduce your electrical bills. For the highest energy efficiency, we recommend our LouverWood™ plantation shutters.
These exclusive faux wood plantation shutters are made from a solid polymer. This low-upkeep material protects against heat up to three times better than wood. And it can withstand high temps and humidity without buckling or peeling.
We make it a breeze to personalize your LouverWood shutters. You select the color, louver size and frame style during our free consultation. Then we’ll take it from there with custom manufacturing and experienced installation.
We manufacture all our plantation shutters here in the United States, so you’ll have them much more rapidly. And we guarantee they’ll stay gorgeous for years.
Our honeycomb shades are one of the best energy-efficient window treatments, especially for large windows. These shades are made with insulating chambers that retain air to reduce high temps from your windows. As a consequence, you may discover your residence 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 receive.
Duette® honeycomb shades are the highest energy-efficient honeycomb shades you can customize. They’re made with six layers of fabric and five insulating air pockets. And with the LightLock™ system, you can absorb or stop nearly all incoming warm sunlight.
When you collaborate with Louver Shop of Dallas/Fort Worth, you’ll get the biggest collection of fabric colors and patterns for your custom shades.
