Energy Benefits of Plantation Shutters
Aside from instantly raising the elegance factor in any room and the overall value of a home, plantation shutters provide several other benefits. Chief among them are energy savings. At a time when trimming costs is in vogue and conserving energy is on the top of every homeowner's mind, having plantation shutters installed in your home is an easy choice.
- Keep Cool in the Summer
- Stay Warm in the Winter
- Slash Energy Bills
Keep Cool in the Summer with Plantation Shutters
Eclipse™ Shutters have pockets of air designed into the louver and frame. This construction virtually eliminates solar heat gain during the summer months, making plantation shutters extremely energy efficient. Ultraviolet protection means the sun's strong rays reflect back instead of being absorbed into the home.
Did you know? You might be losing 25-50 percent of the energy you put into heating or cooling your home through the windows! Find your local plantation shutters dealer and start saving money now!
Plantation Shutters Keep Heat Inside in the Winter
Closing plantation shutters against cold winter drafts does more than make a room seem cozy--it can actually make it warmer. Since so much of a home's heat is lost through poorly insulated windows, plantation shutters provide another barrier that helps keep heat where it belongs; inside.
Reduce Energy Costs with Energy Efficient Plantation Shutters
Making your home more energy efficient will help you save money on your heating and cooling bills. Having plantation shutters installed will allow you to keep the harsh sunlight and heat out of the house during the summer, as well as keep you and your family warm and cozy all winter long. During more temperate seasons, like Spring and Fall, you can control airflow, which helps to regulate the home's temperature. Simply by adjusting the louvers, you might be able to put off turning on the AC or heat a few weeks longer than you expected!
