So how exactly do shutters improve energy efficiency? Let’s break it down simply:

Shutters Are Great Insulation

Quality shutters made of wood or insulated vinyl create an extra barrier against heat transfer. In summer, they block the hot sun from heating up your home’s interior, reducing AC costs. In winter, they trap warm air inside, requiring less heating.

Control Light and Heat

Adjusting the louvers lets you control sunlight and heat entering your rooms. Closed louvers block intense direct light and heat gain on hot days. Open louvers allow in natural warmth on cold days while providing lighting.

Enhance Window Performance

Windows are a major source of heat loss/gain. Adding shutters boosts the insulating power of your windows. The Department of Energy says this improves energy efficiency substantially.

Choosing Efficient Shutters

For maximum efficiency, consider:
– Insulating materials like wood or insulated vinyl
– Tight weatherstripping seals when closed
– Narrower louver sizes
– Precise mounting flush with window frames

Our experts at Woodstock Shutter Company can guide your selection and ensure proper installation for peak performance.
