3 Best Blinds to Keep Heat Out

The ideal window treatments can make your residence more gorgeous, more comfortable and even more energy efficient. Blocking heat during warm weather is a concern we frequently get questioned about, as it impacts your comfort and your electricity expenses.

Blinds are a great way to keep temperatures in check and your house looking gorgeous. They also fit a varying range of budgets and can be highly personalized, including with smart operating systems. With your vision and our expertise, Louver Shop of Macon can help you make custom blinds that fit your home and your needs during your free, in-home consultation.

Discover our designers’ three most loved picks for the best blinds to keep the heat out.

1. Horizontal Blinds

If you are looking for the look of plantation shutters but are on a lower budget, horizontal blinds are a great second choice. Regularly called plantation blinds, these window treatments have oversized slats that give outstanding temperature and light control.

If heat and humidity are a continuing concern, we recommend faux wood blinds. These blinds are manufactured from an exclusive polymer that looks like wood but can weather hot temperatures without yellowing or warping.

Choose from trendy solid colors or realistic wood grain finishes. Then, add your favorite operating system to make moving your blinds even simpler. With PowerView®, you’ll be able to open and close your blinds with only a tap of your phone.

2. Panel Track Blinds

You might believe that vertical blinds are old or not a good fit for your home. Fabric panel track blinds are a modern option that can stylishly block strong sunlight.

In place of having hanging slats concealed within a headrail, these wide panels are placed on tracks above and below your window. They work well on nearly any window style but are particularly distinctive on sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows.

With more than 600 fabrics to select from, you’ll be able to find a color or patten that fits your décor. Even better, our panel track window blinds can shield your residence and furniture 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 seeking a economical window treatment that will last for years while deflecting high temps, look no further than our aluminum mini blinds. They’re budget friendly, simple to clean and their trendy finish complements nearly any type of home.

Conceal cord holes with the exclusive de-Light™ feature from Hunter Douglas and enjoy a darker, cooler space that’s defended from up to 70% of UV rays. When the day has cooled off, see twice as much of your stunning surroundings with MagnaView®.
