3 Greatest Window Treatments in Nashville that Block Summer Warmth

As your air conditioning costs increase in response to hot weather, you might be wondering how you can decrease your home’s air conditioning costs. Updating your window treatments is one approach you can keep your family cozier throughout warm weather.

Window treatments don’t just make your residence look attractive. They can also reduce energy leaks year-round at your windows. About 76% of sunshine 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 optimal window treatment can keep more of your air conditioning (and heat) where it should be—in your house. As there’s a wide variety of solutions available, hiring a local window treatment expert from Louver Shop of Nashville is a ideal place to begin.

Our designers are part of your community, so they know the climate and type of weather you’re up against. That gives them the unique benefit of helping you choose the right option for your home during a free consultation.

In the meantime, here are our suggestions for the top window treatments in Nashville for diverting warmth.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a fantastic way to block summertime heat and could even lower your energy expenses. For the best energy efficiency, we advise our LouverWood™ plantation shutters.

These premium faux wood plantation shutters are made from a solid polymer. This maintenance-free material shields against heat up to three times better than wood. And it can weather high temps and humidity without warping or cracking.

We make it simple to customize your LouverWood shutters. You choose the color, louver size and frame style during our free consultation. Then we’ll take care of it from there with custom production and skilled installation.

We make all our plantation shutters here in the United States, so you’ll receive them much faster. And we pledge they’ll stay attractive for many years.

Honeycomb Shades


Our honeycomb shades are among the highly energy-efficient options, especially for tall windows. These shades have insulating chambers that keep air to reduce high temps from your windows. As a result, you could discover your house stays more comfortable in spite of a higher thermostat setting.

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

Duette® honeycomb shades are the most 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 stop virtually all incoming hot sunlight.
