Deflect High Temperatures with These 3 Great Window Treatments in Orlando

As your air conditioning costs increase because of summer weather, you may be wondering how you can lower your residence’s air conditioning bills. Updating your window treatments is one way you can keep your loved ones cooler throughout hot weather.

Window treatments don’t merely make your home look good. They can also decrease energy escapes all year at your windows. About 76% of sunlight that falls on 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 right window treatment can retain more of your AC (and heating) where it should be—in your house. Since there’s many possibilities to select from, hiring a local window treatment specialist from Louver Shop of Orlando is a good place to begin.

Our professionals live in your community, so they know the climate and type of weather you deal with. That gives them the exclusive advantage of helping you find the ideal solution for your residence during a free consultation.

In the meantime, here are our picks for the best window treatments in Orlando for diverting humidity.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a fantastic way to stop summertime warmth and could even decrease your utility bills. For the greatest energy efficiency, we recommend our LouverWood™ plantation shutters.

These select faux wood plantation shutters are created from a solid polymer. This low-upkeep material insulates up to three times better than wood. And it can put up with high temps and humidity without curving or cracking.

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

We make all our plantation shutters here in the United States, so you’ll have them much more quickly. And we guarantee they’ll remain beautiful for years.

Honeycomb Shades


Our honeycomb shades are among the best energy-efficient shades, even more so for tall windows. These shades are made with insulating pockets that capture air to reduce heat from your windows. As a result, you could learn your home remains more comfortable in spite of a higher thermostat setting.

These cellular shades are available in single-, double- and triple-cell models. The more cells you choose, the higher the energy efficiency you’ll have.

Duette® honeycomb shades are the best energy-efficient honeycomb shades you can find. They’re designed with six layers of fabric and five insulating air pockets. And with the LightLock™ system, you can soak up or block just about all incoming warm sunlight.

When you collaborate with Louver Shop of Orlando, you’ll have access to the largest collection of fabric colors and patterns for your custom shades. Ask your designer for more details about upgrading your shades with PowerView® automation. This smart home technology can move or schedule your shades with an app on your web-enabled device.

Horizontal Blinds


Horizontal blinds are a reasonably priced method to [[stop|keep out|block summertime warmth. One of our most desired styles, EverWood® horizontal blinds, gives your space the look of plantation shutters at an affordable price.

These faux wood blinds are made from polymer, an energy-efficient material that weathers bright sunlight, extreme temperatures and high humidity. Polymer also resists distortion, bleaching and staining better than real wood blinds.

EverWood blinds can be customized in many authentic-looking wood finishes, from white to dark brown TruGrain®. They can also be customized with de-Light™ to stop more sunlight and PowerView to make operating them easier than ever.
