Are Plantation Shutters Good for Insulation?

With the cost of living crisis and heating rising rapidly, you may be looking at ways to reduce your energy costs during the colder months without breaking the bank. Plantation shutters may be the solution for you.

Most heat lost from homes is through the windows and doors, so having these areas sealed will help prevent this. However, your window dressing can play a part in preventing heat from escaping.

Plantation shutters are an investment 

Choosing your window dressings can be a long-lasting investment in your home that may help prevent heat loss.

Plantation shutters are permanent fixtures in window spaces. As they are bespoke, they fit the intended space perfectly, acting like an extra layer to the window area, helping insulate the room.

Further, plantation shutters absorb heat from the room and provide a physical barrier between the window and the room space, preventing more heat from being lost to the window.

All year-round benefits 

Temperature-controlling benefits aren’t just limited to insulating the home during the winter but are an excellent choice all year-round. In summer months, plantation shutters can be used to create ventilation throughout a room while keeping privacy and shade maintained.

Plantation shutters really are an investment. The long-term benefits of adding shutters to a window include increased privacy and light control.
