[[3 Top Window Treatments in Myrtle Beach for Stopping Heat

As your cooling costs increase as a result of hot weather, you may be looking for ways to decrease your residence’s air conditioning expenses. Modernizing your window treatments is one way you can keep your household cooler all through warm weather.

Window treatments don’t only make your residence look modern. They can also decrease energy escapes all year at your windows. About 76% of light that falls on double-pane windows in the summer turns into heat, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. During cold weather, the DOE says your windows can lose about 30% of your heating.

The right window treatment can retain more of your AC (and warmth) where it belongs—in your home. As there’s a lot of options out there, working with a local window treatment professional from Louver Shop of Myrtle Beach is a ideal place to start.

Our specialists are part of your community, so they understand the climate and type of weather you have. That gives them the special benefit of helping you locate the best fit for your home during a free consultation.

In the meantime, here are our suggestions for the best window treatments in Myrtle Beach for stopping heat.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are an excellent way to stop summertime heat and might even reduce your electrical costs. For the best energy efficiency, we suggest our LouverWood™ plantation shutters.

These premium 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 withstand extreme temps and humidity without buckling or flaking.

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 it from there with custom production and skilled installation.

We create all our plantation shutters here in the U.S., so you’ll receive them much more rapidly. And we guarantee they’ll remain attractive for many years.

Honeycomb Shades


Our honeycomb shades are included in the most energy-efficient options, particularly for big windows. These shades are made with insulating pockets that capture air to decrease heat from your windows. As a result, you could discover your house stays comfier despite a higher thermostat setting.

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