Keep Warmth Out During the Summer with These 3 Window Treatments in Columbus

As your cooling expenses increase because of hot weather, you could be looking for ways to control your residence’s air conditioning expenses. Updating your window treatments is one way you can keep your loved ones cooler during warm weather.

Window treatments don’t only make your residence look stylish. They can also reduce energy escapes all year at your windows. About 76% of sunshine that falls on 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 optimal window treatment can retain more of your air conditioning (and heat) where it should be—in your house. Because there’s a wide variety of options to select from, working with a local window treatment pro from Louver Shop of Columbus is a smart place to get started.

Our designers are members of your community, so they know the climate and sort of weather you’re up against. That gives them the unique advantage of helping you choose the right fit for your home during a free consultation.

In the meantime, here are our suggestions for the ideal window treatments in Columbus for blocking humidity.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a good way to stop summertime humidity and could even lower your energy 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-maintenance material insulates up to three times better than wood. And it can endure high temps and humidity without buckling or flaking.

We make it simple to customize your LouverWood shutters. You pick the color, louver size and frame style when we meet for our free consultation. Then we’ll handle it from there with custom manufacturing and professional installation.

We produce all our plantation shutters here in the USA, so you’ll have them much faster. And we promise they’ll continue to be gorgeous for a long time.

Honeycomb Shades


Our honeycomb shades are one of the most energy-efficient shades, even more so for big windows. These shades have insulating chambers that hold air to limit warmth from your windows. Consequently, you might find your house remains cooler even with a higher thermostat setting.

These cellular shades are available in single-, double- and triple-cell construction. The more cells you want, the better the energy efficiency you’ll have.

Duette® honeycomb shades are the best energy-efficient honeycomb shades you can find. They’re made with six layers of fabric and five insulating air pockets. And with the LightLock™ system, you can take in or block just about all incoming searing sunlight.

When you partner with Louver Shop of Columbus, you’ll get the biggest assortment of fabric colors and patterns for your personalized shades. Ask us for more info about personalizing your shades with PowerView® automation. This smart home technology allows you to move or schedule your shades with an app on your web-enabled device.

Horizontal Blinds


Horizontal blinds are a reasonably priced approach to [[stop|keep out|block summertime warmth. One of our most ordered styles, EverWood® horizontal blinds, gives your home the style of plantation shutters at a reasonable price.

These faux wood blinds are made from polymer, an energy-efficient material that stands up to strong sunlight, hot temperatures and high humidity. Polymer also resists warping, bleaching and staining better than genuine wood blinds.

EverWood blinds are available in many authentic-looking wood finishes, from white to dark brown TruGrain®. They can also be upgraded with de-Light™ to deflect more sunshine and PowerView to make operating them faster than ever.
