Do Shutters Help Insulate Windows?

Yes, shutters can help insulate windows. Different shutters provide different levels of insulation. With the normal United States family paying $661 each year on heating bills, it’s not a surprise homeowners are searching for places to trim home utility expenses.

You might immediately think of energy-efficient appliances, like ENERGY STAR® furnace and AC systems. Or perhaps even light bulbs, which can offer large energy savings for your most-used light fixtures.

One of the greatest energy losers in your home could come as a surprise. Your windows can leak up to 30 percent of your house’s conditioned air, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

That’s where our energy-efficient window coverings can assist you, providing great light management while assisting in keeping your Macon home warmer in the winter and more relaxing in the summer.

Window shutters from Louver Shop of Macon are one of the more liked means to increase energy savings while retaining your residence’s style. We have an option that is sure to complement your space, whether you desire the look of stained fine wood shutters or fresh white faux wood shutters.

Review all the choices during a free, in-home consultation with one of our design experts. We’ll bring samples to your living room, take measurements and offer you our complete price quote. All at no hassle.
