3 Top Window Treatments in Pittsburgh for Stopping Heat

As your AC bills increase due to hot weather, you could be looking for ways to lower your house’s energy costs. Updating your window treatments is one method you can keep your household cooler during hot weather.

Window treatments don’t just make your home look stylish. They can also block energy loss year-round at your windows. About 76% of light that hits double-pane windows in the summer is transformed into heat, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. In the winter, the DOE says your windows can leak about 30% of your heating.

The right window treatment can retain more of your AC (and heat) where it belongs—inside. Since there’s a lot of solutions to select from, partnering with a local window treatment specialist from Louver Shop of Pittsburgh is a smart place to begin.

Our experts are part of your community, so they get the climate and kind of weather you have. That gives them the exclusive advantage of helping you choose the best fit for your residence during a free consultation.

In the meantime, here are our suggestions for the ideal window treatments in Pittsburgh for blocking heat.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are an excellent way to block summertime humidity and may even reduce your cooling expenses. For the greatest energy efficiency, we recommend our LouverWood® plantation shutters.

These select faux wood plantation shutters are made from a solid polymer. This low-upkeep material shields against heat up to three times better than wood. And it can weather soaring heat and humidity without buckling or flaking.

We make it a breeze to customize your LouverWood shutters. You pick the color, louver size and frame style when we meet for our free consultation. Then we’ll take it from there with custom production and pro installation.

We produce all our plantation shutters here in the USA, so you’ll get them much more rapidly. And we guarantee they’ll remain attractive for a long time.

Honeycomb Shades

Our honeycomb shades are one of the most energy-efficient shades, especially for tall windows. These shades have insulating compartments that keep air to limit warmth from your windows. Consequently, you could find your home stays cooler in spite of a higher thermostat setting.

These cellular shades can be ordered in single-, double- and triple-cell styles. The more cells you choose, the greater the energy efficiency you’ll receive.

Duette® honeycomb shades are the highest energy-efficient honeycomb shades you can customize. They’re created with six layers of fabric and five insulating air pockets. And with the LightLock™ system, you can take in or stop nearly all incoming warm sunlight.
