How an Investment in Window Shutters Can Actually Save You Money

It is natural to assume that an investment in premium window shutters would constitute a major expense, there are options available to suit all budgets but it is a fairly significant home improvement.

What’s often overlooked is the potential for high-quality plantation shutters to actually save household money long-term; research has shown that anything from 25% to 50% of the energy used to heat interior spaces goes straight out the window.

Even the most energy-efficient windows and doors are unable to offer effective heat retention throughout the colder months of the year, without appropriate coverings to enhance their performance.

 

Precisely where plantation shutters make a real difference, both in terms of interior comfort and a reduction in long-term energy consumption.

Do Plantation Shutters Really Make a Difference?

Anything that serves as a physical barrier between your interior spaces and the outdoors can only be good. To a degree, most types of curtains, drapes, blinds and nets will offer a certain amount of protection.

It is not just about the materials, but also the pockets of air between them which provide highly effective insulation.

When you step up to the highest-quality plantation shutters, you place a uniquely robust physical barrier between your home and the outdoors; all plantation shutters naturally improve on the insulating properties of standard curtains, nets and blinds. High-end hardwood shutters offer greater protection than say ABS shutters, but even the most affordable plantation shutters can make a real difference.

Depending on the type of opening and the inefficiency of the prior coverings, the installation of quality shutters can lead to a reduction in heat loss of up to 50%. This makes a significant difference to heating bills long term, adding up in the long term.
