3 Best Blinds to Keep Heat Out

The ideal window treatments can make your home more gorgeous, comfier and even more energy efficient. Keeping heat out during warm weather is a concern we regularly get questioned about, since it impacts your comfort and your air conditioning bills.

Blinds are a fantastic way to keep temperatures managed and your home looking good. They also accommodate a varying range of budgets and can be highly personalized, including with smart operating systems. With your vision and our expertise, Louver Shop of Western Carolina can help you design custom blinds that fit your décor and your needs during your free, in-home consultation.

Learn more about 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 an excellent alternative. Often called plantation blinds, these window treatments have generously sized slats that provide outstanding temperature and light control.

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

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

2. Panel Track Blinds

You might believe that vertical blinds are old or not a good match for your residence. Fabric panel track blinds are an up-to-date alternative that can stylishly deflect bright sunlight.

In lieu having hanging slats concealed within a headrail, these wide panels are attached on tracks above and below your window. They are a good fit on most window styles but are particularly stunning on sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows.

With more than 600 fabrics to choose from, you’ll be able to choose a color or patten that fits your style. Plus, our panel track window blinds can shield your home and flooring from up to 70% of harmful ultraviolet light.

If you have young children or pets, select 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 budget-friendly window treatment that will last for years while stopping high temps, look no further than our aluminum mini blinds. They’re affordable, fast to clean and their trendy finish matches just about any kind of home.

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