As your air conditioning costs increase due to warm weather, you could be wondering how you can lower your house’s energy costs. Updating your window treatments is one method you can keep your family more comfortable during warm weather.
Window treatments don’t only make your home look up-to-date. They can also lower energy loss all year at your windows. About 76% of light that hits double-pane windows in the summer turns into heat, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. In the winter, the DOE says your windows can let out about 30% of your heating.
The ideal window treatment can retain more of your AC (and heating) where it goes—in your house. Because there’s a wide variety of choices out there, partnering with a local window treatment expert from Louver Shop of Western Carolina is a smart place to get started.
Our professionals are members of your community, so they get the climate and kind of weather you deal with. That gives them the unique benefit of helping you choose the best option for your house during a free consultation.
In the meantime, here are our suggestions for the best window treatments in Spartanburg for stopping humidity.
