Are Plantation Shutters Good At Insulating Your Home?

PolyCore Shutters - Polycore shutters in a Castle Rock, Colorado family room and nookPlantation shutters are commonly chosen for their elegant good looks. However, plantation shutters are also great at insulating your windows. Windows are the primary source of temperature loss in your Colorado home, even if the windows are brand new. Conserving energy is essential for every Colorado homeowner, and having plantation shutters installed in your home can quickly help save on your energy bills.

Plantation shutters insulate your Colorado home, keeping it warm in the winter.

Keeping the louvers in the fully closed position on plantation shutters during cold winter can block cold winter drafts from your windows. The shutters fitting tightly in your window frames will block the transfer of heat through air movement or convection. This creates a barrier between Colorado’s extreme temperatures and the interior of your home. Shutters also have one of the highest R-values on any window covering. This provides a solid insulating barrier from the cold.

Plantation shutters insulate your Colorado home,  keeping it cool in the summer

Plantation shutters keep the sunshine from heating your home because of the shutter’s excellent thermal insulation properties. Shutters will reduce solar heat gain during the hot summer months because the sun’s intense rays will reflect instead of being absorbed into your home.

Having plantation shutters installed by New View Blinds and Shutters will allow you to keep Colorado’s harsh sunlight and heat out of your home during the summer and keep you and your family warm and cozy all winter. With shutters, you’ll enjoy absolute control over the temperature of your rooms, the amount of light coming in, and your privacy. Shutters not only give you more significant savings on your energy bills but will also add beauty and genuine value to your home.
