Shutters are both beautiful and functional. They provide a touch of elegance while increasing the value of your home and offering many other benefits, the most notable of which are energy savings and conservation.
Shutters, and external shutters in particular, help conserve energy by reducing the amount of heat that enters your home, thus reducing the amount of time your air con has to run, and saving you money. With electricity prices as high as they are in Australia, this is a major plus.
Increase Energy Efficiency and Energy Savings
By adding shutters to your home, you’re improving the energy-efficiency of your windows, which in turn, reduces your energy costs. If you have shutters like the Louvreshield External Aluminium Shutters, you can simply adjust the louvres to keep the heat at bay when the temperature rises. These shutters are designed to block out the hot sun while allowing you to control the light and air flow in your home. Plus, they have a unique blade spline for added strength, and help maintain privacy and security.
Keeps You Cool By Reflecting Solar Radiation
The amount of solar heat gain can be reduced by shutters that reflect solar radiation, such as Thermoshield Plantation Shutters or Basswood Shutters. To put it simply, these shutters can help keep your home cool!
Shutters will provide additional insulation by preventing heat from entering and cool air from escaping. Thermoshield Plantation and Basswood Shutters are UV stabilised to withstand the heat of the Australian summers by reducing heat gain. This makes these shutters highly energy-efficient and capable of reflecting sun rays instead of allowing them to be absorbed into the home.
Shutters are an affordable and highly effective way to keep your home cool, helping you to reduce your energy costs. Plus, with all of the colours and styles available, they look fantastic! Take the Thermoshield Plantation Shutters, for instance; they’re the most affordable shutters in Australia, and they provide a notable amount of protection and security. They offer a great balance of style, protection from the sun, and price.
