How Window Shutters Can Decrease Your Heating and Cooling Bills
Don't Let the Heat In
Did you know that when you sit near a window, you can experience nearly a 20 degree rise in temperature? Without window shutters, the light streaming through your window can heat your home up quickly. This isn’t a bad thing when cooler weather arrives, but in many instances here in Los Angeles, keeping the inside of our homes cooler is never a bad thing.
Keep Treated Air Inside
On a similar note, when you pay to heat or cool your home, if your windows are letting treated air out, you’re wasting money. With window shutters, you get an extra layer of protection that can help to keep heated or cooled air inside where you want it to be.
How This Translates to Energy Bill Savings
Needless to say, the less you have to worry about outside air getting in and inside air getting out, the more effectively you’re able to heat or cool your home. This leads to more predictable energy bills; and when you’re more aware of how everything works, the end result is that you can save a great deal of money on your heating and cooling costs. Simply put, adding window shutters is a win/win.
