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 families 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 large energy savings for your most-used light fixtures.
