Do Shutters Help Insulate Windows?

Yes, shutters can help insulate windows. Different shutters provide different levels of insulation. With the average United States family paying $661 annually on heating bills, it’s not unexpected that homeowners are searching for areas to cut home energy expenses.

You might immediately think of appliances that conserve energy, like ENERGY STAR® furnace and AC systems. Or maybe even light bulbs, which can produce sizeable energy savings for your most-used light fixtures.

One of the greatest energy losers in your residence might come as a surprise. Your windows can release up to 30 percent of your house’s conditioned air, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

That’s where our energy-conserving shutters, shades and blinds can assist you, delivering great light management while helping keep your Knoxville house warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Window shutters from Louver Shop of Knoxville are among the most liked approaches to enhance energy preservation while keeping up your house’s appearance. We have a style that is certain to fit your space, whether you need the look of stained fine wood shutters or modern white faux wood shutters.

Go through all the possibilities during a free, in-home consultation with one of our design professionals. We’ll bring samples to you, size your windows and provide you with our complete price quote. All at no pressure.
