Shutters as thermal insulators
According to energy.gov, windows are responsible for 30% of a home’s heating and cooling energy loss. They’re also one of the easiest, most accessible places to focus your energy conservation efforts. Certain window treatments act as effective thermal insulators, restricting the amount of heat gain and keeping the interior cool. According to experts in window coverings including Accent Shutter and Shades, shutters are brilliant thermal insulators as their adjustable louvers allow ventilation and light control while limiting the heat gain through windows and doors.
Keep interiors cool in summer
Choose from various construction options, such as composite, premium wood, or faux wood. Faux wood shutters are the most energy efficient shutter option. They are made of PVC or vinyl with a hollow core, which creates an air pocket that resists heat transfer. The effect can be likened to a bubble that blocks outside temperatures. Consult with our experts to discover an option that works best for you. Summer is far from over, don’t let this brutal Texas heat cost you more money. Keep your home cool and your wallet full in the most stylish way there is.
