3 Greatest Window Treatments in Boston for Deflecting Humidity

As your AC bills rise because of warm weather, you might be thinking how you can reduce your residence’s air conditioning bills. Modernizing your window treatments is one approach you can keep your family more comfortable throughout warm weather.

Window treatments don’t merely make your residence look modern. They can also halt energy loss 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. In the winter, the DOE says your windows can lose about 30% of your heating.

The ideal window treatment can hold more of your air conditioning (and warmth) where it belongs—in your residence. Since there’s many solutions out there, working with a local window treatment specialist from Louver Shop of Boston is a great place to start.

Our pros live in your community, so they know the climate and sort of weather you deal with. That gives them the unique perk of helping you locate the right fit for your residence during a free consultation.

In the meantime, here are our picks for the ideal window treatments in Boston for diverting humidity.
