Block Humidity with These 3 Great Window Treatments in Columbia

As your cooling bills increase because of summer weather, you may be wondering how you can control your residence’s cooling expenses. Updating your window treatments is one way you can keep your family cooler all through the summer.

Window treatments don’t merely make your rooms look good. They can also stop energy leaks throughout the year at your windows. About 76% of light that falls on double-pane windows in the summer is converted 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 ideal window treatment can hold more of your AC (and warmth) where it goes—inside. As there’s a wide variety of solutions out there, hiring a local window treatment pro from Louver Shop of Columbia is a ideal place to start.

Our professionals are members of your community, so they understand the climate and sort of weather you’re up against. That gives them the special advantage of helping you locate the best solution for your home during a free consultation.

In the meantime, here are our suggestions for the top window treatments in Columbia for diverting humidity.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a fantastic way to stop summertime heat and might even decrease your cooling costs. For the best energy efficiency, we recommend our LouverWood® plantation shutters.

These exclusive faux wood plantation shutters are created from a solid polymer. This maintenance-free material protects against heat up to three times better than wood. And it can endure high temps and humidity without curving or peeling.

We make it a breeze to customize your LouverWood shutters. You select the color, louver size and frame style when we have our free consultation. Then we’ll take care of it from there with custom manufacturing and professional installation.

We make all our plantation shutters here in the U.S., so you’ll have them much more quickly. And we guarantee they’ll continue to be attractive for many years.

Honeycomb Shades


Our honeycomb shades are one of the most energy-efficient window treatments, especially for big windows. These shades use insulating pockets that capture air to reduce high temps from your windows. As a consequence, you might discover your residence stays more comfortable in spite of a higher thermostat setting.

These cellular shades can be customized in single-, double- and triple-cell construction. 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 customize. They’re made with six layers of fabric and five insulating air pockets. And with the LightLock™ system, you can soak up or deflect virtually all incoming searing sunlight.

When you collaborate with Louver Shop of Columbia, you’ll get the biggest selection of fabric colors and patterns for your custom shades. Ask your pro for more information about customizing your shades with PowerView® automation. This smart home technology gives you the ability to move or schedule your shades with an app on your web-enabled device.

Horizontal Blinds


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

These faux wood blinds are manufactured from polymer, an energy-efficient material that withstands strong sunlight, extreme temperatures and high humidity. Polymer also stops distortion, bleaching and discoloration better than all-wood blinds.

EverWood blinds can be customized in many realistic wood finishes, from white to dark brown TruGrain®. They can also be upgraded with de-Light™ to deflect more daylight and PowerView to make enjoying them faster than ever.
