As your AC costs go up as a result of hot weather, you could be looking for ways to reduce your residence’s electrical costs. Enhancing your window treatments is one approach you can keep your household cozier throughout warm weather.
Window treatments don’t merely make your residence look good. They can also decrease energy escapes all year at your windows. About 76% of sunshine that hits double-pane windows in the summer turns into heat, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. During the winter, the DOE says your windows can leak about 30% of your heating.
The ideal window treatment can keep more of your air conditioning (and warmth) where it should be—in your home. Since there’s many choices out there, partnering with a local window treatment specialist from Louver Shop of Philadelphia is a great place to begin.
Our professionals are part of your community, so they understand the climate and kind of weather you’re up against. That gives them the exclusive advantage of helping you locate the best solution for your home during a free consultation.
In the meantime, here are our recommendations for the ideal window treatments in Philadelphia for diverting warmth.
Plantation shutters are an excellent way to stop summertime heat and may even lower your cooling costs. For the highest energy efficiency, we recommend our LouverWood® plantation shutters.
These exclusive faux wood plantation shutters are made from a solid polymer. This maintenance-free material shields against heat up to three times better than wood. And it can endure high heat and humidity without warping or peeling.
We make it a breeze to individualize your LouverWood shutters. You select the color, louver size and frame style during our free consultation. Then we’ll take care of it from there with custom assembly and skilled installation.
We manufacture all our plantation shutters here in the U.S., so you’ll have them much more rapidly. And we guarantee they’ll continue to be beautiful for many years.
Our honeycomb shades are included in the highly energy-efficient options, especially for large windows. These shades have insulating compartments that capture air to decrease high temps from your windows. As a result, you may find your house remains more comfortable even with a higher thermostat setting.
These cellular shades are available in single-, double- and triple-cell models. The more cells you want, the better the energy efficiency you’ll have.
Duette® honeycomb shades are the most energy-efficient honeycomb shades you can get. They’re made with six layers of fabric and five insulating air chambers. And with the LightLock™ system, you can soak up or block virtually all incoming searing sunlight.
When you work with Louver Shop of Philadelphia, you’ll receive the largest collection of fabric colors and patterns for your personalized shades.
