3 Best Blinds to Keep Heat Out

The ideal window treatments can make your home more beautiful, cooler and even more energy efficient. Keeping heat out during high temperatures is a concern we often get asked about, because it affects your comfort and your air conditioning bills.

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

Discover our designers’ three most loved options for the best blinds to keep the heat out.

1. Horizontal Blinds

If you enjoy the style of plantation shutters but are on a smaller budget, horizontal blinds are a great alternative. Regularly called plantation blinds, these window treatments have luxuriously sized slats that provide excellent temperature and light control.

If heat and humidity are a continued problem, we suggest faux wood blinds. These blinds are crafted from a proprietary polymer that looks like wood but can weather hot temperatures without yellowing or warping.

Choose from on-trend 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 merely a tap of your phone.

2. Panel Track Blinds

You may be thinking that vertical blinds are old or not a good match for your residence. Fabric panel track blinds are a contemporary solution that can stylishly block strong sunlight.

In place of having hanging slats hidden within a headrail, these wide panels are placed on tracks above and below your window. They are a good fit on most window styles but are very eye-catching 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 décor. As a bonus, our panel track window blinds can shield your house and belongings from up to 70% of harmful ultraviolet light.

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

3. Mini Blinds

If you’re trying to find a reasonably priced window treatment that will last for years while blocking heat, look no further than our aluminum mini blinds. They’re affordable, fast to clean and their trendy finish complements most any kind of home.

Cover cord holes with the exclusive de-Light™ feature from Hunter Douglas and get a darker, cooler room that’s shielded from up to 70% of UV rays. When the temperatures have gotten cooler, see twice as much of your beautiful surroundings with MagnaView®.
