Do Shutters Help Insulate Windows?

Yes, shutters can help insulate windows. Different shutters provide different levels of insulation. With the average United States family spending $661 each year on heating expenses, it’s not a shock families are seeking areas to lower home heating and cooling costs.

You might immediately think of appliances that use less energy, like ENERGY STAR® heating and cooling units. Or possibly even light bulbs, which can produce big energy savings for your most-used light fixtures.

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

That’s where our energy-conserving window treatments can help, giving high-quality light control while assisting in keeping your Tampa home cozier in the winter and more relaxing in the summer.

Window shutters from Louver Shop of Tampa are among the most popular means to increase energy conservation while retaining your house’s style. We have an option that is sure to complement your house, whether you desire the style of stained fine wood shutters or contemporary white faux wood shutters.
