3 Best Blinds to Keep Heat Out

The ideal window treatments can make your home more beautiful, cooler and even more energy efficient. Stopping heat during warm weather is a concern we often get asked about, as it impacts your comfort and your air conditioning expenses.

Blinds are a fantastic way to keep temperatures in check and your house looking beautiful. They also fit a differing range of budgets and can be highly customized, including with smart operating systems. With your vision and our expertise, Louver Shop of Louisiana can help you design custom blinds that complement your style and your needs during your free, in-home consultation.

Find out about our designers’ three favorite picks for the best blinds to keep the heat out.

1. Horizontal Blinds

If you are looking for the appearance of plantation shutters but are on a tighter budget, horizontal blinds are an excellent alternative. Regularly called plantation blinds, these window treatments have generously sized slats that deliver outstanding temperature and light control.

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

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

2. Panel Track Blinds

You might believe that vertical blinds are old or not right for your house. Fabric panel track blinds are a modern solution that can stylishly block warm sunlight.

In place of having hanging slats covered within a headrail, these wide panels are attached on tracks above and below your window. They are a good fit on the majority of window styles but are especially eye-catching on sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows.

With more than 600 fabrics to pick from, you’ll be able to settle on a color or patten that works with your décor. Even better, our panel track window blinds can shield your home and flooring from up to 70% of damaging ultraviolet light.

If you have young children or pets, choose from a cord-free wand or PowerView® operating system to make your panel track blinds even safer.

3. Mini Blinds

If you’re seeking a budget-friendly window treatment that will last for many years while blocking heat, look no further than our aluminum mini blinds. They’re affordable, fast to clean and their on-trend finish matches most any style of home.

Cover cord holes with the exclusive de-Light™ feature from Hunter Douglas and enjoy a darker, cooler room that’s shielded from up to 70% of UV rays. When the temperatures have gotten cooler, see twice as much of your gorgeous surroundings with MagnaView®.
