If you’re looking for ways to conserve energy, then our Diamond Shutters could be just the ticket. Window dressings such as these not only help reduce heat loss in winter, by keeping the heat within the home, but they also help reduce heat gain in the summer too, reducing the need for air conditioning. Solid window shutters are fantastic insulators, being able to trap cold air between the shutter itself and your window, providing an extra layer of insulation.
According to the government agency energy.gov, around 30% of the homes heat is lost through its windows. Adding this particular window dressing to your home would therefore aid in reducing that 30% loss. The exact amount would of course depend greatly on the type of shutter installed, the season and of course, how you use your shutters.
