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 annually on heating costs, it’s not a surprise households are seeking ways to trim home energy bills.

You might first picture energy-efficient appliances, like ENERGY STAR® heating and cooling systems. Or perhaps even light bulbs, which can produce big energy savings for your most-used light fixtures.

One of the top energy losers in your home could surprise you. Your windows can release up to 30 percent of your residence’s heating and cooling, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

That’s where our energy-conserving window treatments can assist you, delivering better light filtration while assisting in keeping your San Antonio house comfier in the winter and more relaxing in the summer.

Window shutters from Louver Shop of San Antonio are among the most desired approaches to enhance energy conservation while retaining your residence’s style. We have a style that no doubt will work with your rooms, whether you need the look of stained genuine wood shutters or contemporary white faux wood shutters.
