Do Shutters Help Insulate Windows?

Yes, shutters can help insulate windows. Different shutters provide different levels of insulation. With the common United States family parting with $661 each year on heating costs, it’s not unexpected that homeowners are searching for ways to trim home utility expenses.

The first thing you might think about is appliances that use less energy, like ENERGY STAR® heating and cooling units. Or perhaps even light bulbs, which can offer sizeable energy savings for your most-used light fixtures.

One of the highest energy wasters in your residence may be a surprise. Your windows can release up to 30 percent of your residence’s conditioned air, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

That’s where our energy-conserving window treatments come in, delivering better light control while assisting in keeping your Louisville house cozier in the winter and more relaxing in the summer.

Window shutters from Louver Shop of Louisville are one of the most loved approaches to boost energy conservation while retaining your house’s style. We have a model that is sure to fit your residence, whether you desire the look of stained fine wood shutters or fresh white faux wood shutters.

Go through all your options during a free, in-home consultation with one of our design specialists. We’ll bring displays to your home, measure your windows and provide you with our all-inclusive price quote. All at no hassle.
