3 Best Window Treatments in Gulf Coast for Deflecting Humidity

As your AC expenses go up as a result of hot weather, you could be looking for ways to control your home’s air conditioning costs. Modernizing your window treatments is one way you can keep your family cozier during hot weather.

Window treatments don’t just make your home look good. They can also reduce energy escapes all year at your windows. About 76% of light that hits double-pane windows in the summer is transformed into heat, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. During the winter, the DOE says your windows can leak about 30% of your heating.

The ideal window treatment can keep more of your air conditioning (and warmth) where it belongs—in your house. Because there’s a lot of solutions available, partnering with a local window treatment expert from Louver Shop of Gulf Coast is a ideal place to begin.
