With the rising cost of living and uncertainty of when things will settle down, it’s no surprise that homeowners are looking at ways to save money around the house. If you’re aiming to cut down on your energy bills, it could be your window dressing that needs changing. Studies suggest that plantation shutters are the most effective window dressing for heat retention, with a possible reduction of 50% on heating costs.
What Are Plantation Shutters?
Plantation shutters are commonly used in the South of the USA, where they are fitted to mansions on cotton and sugar plantation farms. They feature louvres (also known as slats) which can be titled at any angle that you desire, which allows you to control light and air flow. You’re sure to find plantation shutters that complement your room, with a wide range of designs, colours and textures, which we all offer here at Bullet Garage Doors.
How Are Plantation Shutters More Energy Efficient?
As suggested before, plantation shutters are one of the most energy efficient window dressings on the market. Plantation shutters will retain the temperature during the colder months, but will also act as a sunblock in the summer months. When installed inside the window recess, they are sealed right up against the window frame which prevents inside air escaping, and vice versa. Additionally, its thick, wooden louvers are much more effective at retaining heat, in comparison to thin blinds and curtains.
