[[3 Best Window Treatments in Macon for Deflecting Humidity

As your cooling costs increase as a result of warm weather, you could be thinking how you can reduce your home’s utility costs. Modernizing your window treatments is one way you can keep your loved ones cozier all through hot weather.

Window treatments don’t merely make your home look stylish. They can also reduce energy loss throughout the year at your windows. About 76% of sunshine 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 optimal window treatment can keep more of your air conditioning (and heating) where it should be—in your home. As there’s a lot of choices available, working with a local window treatment professional from Louver Shop of Macon is a great place to get started.

Our specialists live in your community, so they understand the climate and sort of weather you have. That gives them the special perk of helping you find the ideal fit for your house during a free consultation.

In the meantime, here are our picks for the ideal window treatments in Macon for diverting warmth.

Plantation Shutters

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

These exclusive faux wood plantation shutters are created from a solid polymer. This low-upkeep material protects against heat up to three times better than wood. And it can put up with soaring temperatures and humidity without warping or cracking.

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

We produce 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 many years.

Honeycomb Shades


Our honeycomb shades are included in the highly energy-efficient shades, especially for large windows. These shades use insulating chambers that hold air to limit warmth from your windows. As a result, you may find your residence stays more comfortable in spite of a higher thermostat setting.

These cellular shades are available in single-, double- and triple-cell construction. The more cells you want, the greater the energy efficiency you’ll receive.

Duette® honeycomb shades are the most energy-efficient honeycomb shades you can customize. They’re created with six layers of fabric and five insulating air chambers. And with the LightLock™ system, you can take in or stop just about all incoming searing sunlight.

When you partner with Louver Shop of Macon, you’ll receive the widest collection of fabric colors and patterns for your new shades. Ask your designer for more information about personalizing your shades with PowerView® automation. This smart home technology gives you the ability to move or schedule your window treatments with an app on your web-enabled device.

Horizontal Blinds


Horizontal blinds are a budget-friendly approach to [[stop|keep out|block summertime humidity. One of our most desired styles, EverWood® horizontal blinds, gives your home the look of plantation shutters at an affordable price.

These faux wood blinds are manufactured from polymer, an energy-efficient material that weathers harsh sunlight, extreme temperatures and high humidity. Polymer also stops bending, fading and discoloration better than genuine wood blinds.

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