3 Top Window Treatments in Denver that Deflect Summer Heat

As your AC costs go up as a result of hot weather, you may be wondering how you can reduce your house’s electrical bills. Modernizing your window treatments is one method you can keep your family cozier throughout warm weather.

Window treatments don’t merely make your rooms look good. They can also block energy leaks year-round at your windows. About 76% of sunshine that hits 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 air conditioning (and heating) where it belongs—in your home. Since there’s many options to select from, working with a local window treatment specialist from Louver Shop of Colorado is a smart place to start.

Our designers are part of your community, so they know the climate and kind of weather you have. That gives them the unique advantage of helping you find the ideal fit for your house during a free consultation.

In the meantime, here are our recommendations for the top window treatments in Denver for stopping heat.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are an excellent way to block summertime heat and may even decrease your energy bills. For the greatest energy efficiency, we suggest our LouverWood® plantation shutters.

These select faux wood plantation shutters are crafted from a solid polymer. This low-upkeep material protects against heat up to three times better than wood. And it can weather high temps and humidity without buckling or flaking.

We make it easy to customize your LouverWood shutters. You select the color, louver size and frame style when we meet for our free consultation. Then we’ll take care of it from there with custom production and pro installation.

We create all our plantation shutters here in the U.S., so you’ll get them much faster. And we promise they’ll stay attractive for years.

Honeycomb Shades


Our honeycomb shades are among the best energy-efficient window treatments, particularly for wide windows. These shades have insulating compartments that retain air to decrease high temps from your windows. Consequently, you might find your house stays comfier even with a higher thermostat setting.

These cellular shades can be customized in single-, double- and triple-cell styles. The more cells you choose, the greater the energy efficiency you’ll get.

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