Deflect High Temperatures with These 3 Custom Window Treatments in Charleston

As your cooling costs go up because of summer weather, you might be thinking how you can control your home’s air conditioning expenses. Enhancing your window treatments is one method you can keep your family cooler during warm weather.

Window treatments don’t merely make your rooms look attractive. They can also stop energy escapes 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. During the winter, the DOE says your windows can lose about 30% of your heating.

The optimal window treatment can hold more of your air conditioning (and heat) where it should be—inside. Since there’s many choices available, partnering with a local window treatment pro from Louver Shop of Charleston is a great place to begin.

Our designers live in your community, so they know the climate and sort of weather you’re up against. That gives them the unique perk of helping you locate the right solution for your residence during a free consultation.

In the meantime, here are our picks for the ideal window treatments in Charleston for blocking warmth.
