3 Best Blinds to Keep Heat Out

The ideal window treatments can make your house more attractive, comfier and even more energy efficient. Blocking heat during summer is a concern we frequently hear about, as it affects your comfort and your electricity costs.

Blinds are a fantastic way to keep temperatures under control and your house looking gorgeous. They also accommodate a wide range of budgets and can be highly personalized, including with smart operating systems. With your vision and our expertise, Louver Shop of Pittsburgh can help you create custom blinds that complement your home and your needs during your free, in-home consultation.

Discover our designers’ three favorite choices for the best blinds to keep the heat out.

1. Horizontal Blinds

If you love the look of plantation shutters but are on a lower budget, horizontal blinds are a good substitute. Frequently called plantation blinds, these window treatments have oversized slats that provide excellent temperature and light control.

If heat and humidity are an ongoing concern, we suggest faux wood blinds. These blinds are manufactured from an exclusive polymer that looks like wood but can withstand extreme temperatures without yellowing or warping.

Choose from trendy solid colors or lifelike wood grain finishes. Then, choose your favorite operating system to make enjoying your blinds even easier. With PowerView®, you’ll be able to raise and lower your blinds with only a tap of your phone.

2. Panel Track Blinds

You could think that vertical blinds are outdated or not right for your home. Fabric panel track blinds are a modern option that can stylishly stop strong sunlight.

In place of having hanging slats hidden within a headrail, these wide panels are attached on tracks above and below your window. They are a good match on the majority of window styles but are particularly striking on sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows.

With more than 600 fabrics to pick from, you’ll be able to settle on a color or patten that works with your décor. Even better, our panel track window blinds can defend your house and belongings from up to 70% of damaging ultraviolet light.

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

3. Mini Blinds

If you’re looking for a economical window treatment that will last for a long time while stopping warmth, look no further than our aluminum mini blinds. They’re easy on your wallet, fast to clean and their trendy finish fits most any kind of home.

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