Installing aluminium or wood shutters can enhance the insulation of your windows and prevent heat from escaping outside, lowering your energy bills during the colder months of the year.
Reduce your Heating Costs in the Winter
Improving the heat efficiency of your home should begin with identifying and fixing any holes or gaps that could be venting valuable heat energy out of your property, such as fireplaces, clothes dryers and air conditioner returns. Even a small opening can add up to significant increases in energy bills, as hot air is forced out and cool air drawn in. Investing in home improvements such as cavity wall or loft insulation and double glazed windows can also help you retain more heat.
Insulating Properties of Shutters
Window shutters can be very useful for retaining heat too, as these solid fittings can be closed to create a barrier between your window pane and the outside air, regardless of whether these shutters are fitted to the inside or outside of your home. Making sure your shutters are custom made to fit the dimensions of your window spaces will help ensure that no gaps impair their insulating qualities and levels of light control offered.
