Energy Benefits of California and Plantation Shutters
Types of Interior Shutters
Eclipse™ Shutters, aside from instantly raising the elegance factor in any room, provide several other benefits. At the top of the list is energy efficiency. At a time when trimming costs and conserving energy is at the top of any homeowner's mind, having shutters installed in your home is an easy and economical choice.
Eclipse Shutters have pockets of air designed into the louver and frame. This construction virtually eliminates solar heat gain during the summer months, making our interior shutters extremely energy efficient. Ultraviolet stabilizers are built into Eclipse Shutters, creating a smooth non-porous surface that helps to reflect the heat from sun’s strong rays.
Did you know? You might be losing 25-50 percent of the energy you put into heating or cooling your home through the windows!
Closing shutters against cold winter drafts does more than make a room seem cozy - it can actually make it warmer. Since so much of a home's heat is lost through poorly insulated windows, California and Plantation shutters provide another barrier that helps keep heat where it belongs: inside.
Anything you can do to make your home more energy efficient will help you save money on your heating and cooling bills. Having shutters installed on your windows will allow you to keep the harsh sunlight and heat out of the house during the summer, as well as keep you and your family warm and cozy all winter long. During more temperate seasons, like Spring and Fall, you can control how much airflow comes inside which helps to regulate the home's temperature. Simply by adjusting the louvers, you might be able to put off turning on the AC or heat a few weeks longer than you expected!
