Keep Warmth Out During the Summer with These 3 Window Treatments in Montgomery

As your AC expenses rise due to summer weather, you could be wondering how you can control your house’s air conditioning expenses. Updating your window treatments is one method you can keep your household more comfortable throughout hot weather.

Window treatments don’t only make your home look up-to-date. They can also block energy escapes throughout the year at your windows. About 76% of sunshine that hits double-pane windows in the summer is converted into heat, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. In the winter, the DOE says your windows can lose about 30% of your heating.

The right window treatment can hold more of your cooling (and heat) where it should be—inside. Because there’s a lot of choices to select from, hiring a local window treatment specialist from Louver Shop of Montgomery is a ideal place to begin.

Our consultants live in your community, so they understand the climate and type of weather you have. That gives them the special benefit of helping you locate the right solution for your residence during a free consultation.

In the meantime, here are our suggestions for the best window treatments in Montgomery for diverting humidity.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a good way to stop summertime warmth and might even reduce your electrical bills. For the best energy efficiency, we suggest our LouverWood™ plantation shutters.

These exclusive faux wood plantation shutters are crafted from a solid polymer. This low-maintenance material shields against heat up to three times better than wood. And it can put up with extreme temps and humidity without buckling or peeling.

We make it simple to individualize your LouverWood shutters. You select the color, louver size and frame style during our free consultation. Then we’ll take it from there with custom manufacturing and experienced installation.

We make all our plantation shutters here in the U.S., so you’ll get them much more rapidly. And we promise they’ll stay attractive for a long time.

Honeycomb Shades


Our honeycomb shades are included in the best energy-efficient shades, particularly for big windows. These shades are made with insulating compartments that trap air to limit warmth from your windows. As a consequence, you could learn your home remains comfier in spite of a higher thermostat setting.

These cellular shades can be ordered in single-, double- and triple-cell construction. The more cells you want, the better the energy efficiency you’ll have.
