Are Plantation Shutters Good At Insulating Your Home?
Plantation shutters are commonly chosen for their elegant good looks. However, plantation shutters are also energy efficient. Windows are the primary source of temperature loss in your Colorado home, even if the windows are brand new. Conserving energy is an important factor for every Colorado homeowner, and having plantation shutters installed in your home can easily help save on your energy bills.
Plantation shutters keep your Colorado home warm in the winter
Keeping the louvers shut on plantation shutters during the cold winter months can block frigid winter drafts coming from your windows. By virtue of the shutters fitting tightly in your window frames, they will block the transfer of heat through air movement or convection. This creates a barrier between Colorado’s extreme temperatures and your home’s interior. Shutters also have one of the highest R-values on any window covering. This provides a strong insulating barrier from the cold.
Plantation Shutters help your Colorado home stay cool in the summer
Plantation shutters keep the sunshine from heating up your home, because of the shutters excellent thermal insulation properties. Shutters will reduce solar heat gain during the hot summer months, because the sun’s strong rays will reflect back 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, as well as keeping you and your family warm and cozy all winter long. Shutters not only give you bigger savings on your energy bills, they will also add both beauty and genuine value to your home. With shutters you’ll enjoy absolute control over the temperature of your rooms, the amount of light coming in, as well as your privacy.
