Are Indoor Shutters Energy-Efficient?

Whether you live in southern Florida or northern Chicago, energy efficiency is something every homeowner has to make a priority.

According to, windows are responsible for up to 30% of a home's heating and cooling energy loss — that’s hundreds of dollars flying out your windows every year. Fortunately, there’s a simple way to prevent unnecessary energy loss.

Save Energy this Season with Indoor Shutters

You should never have to sacrifice style or functionality in the name of energy efficiency.

Shutters are one of the best window treatments on the market in terms of energy efficiency. This is because they enclose the window frame and create a strong seal that prevents air from flowing in or out. In fact, their construction resists heat transfer better than traditional blinds.

Wood Shutters

From cooling your home in the summer to retaining warmth in the winter, wood shutters can help regulate your home’s internal temperature. And because wood shutters are in high demand, thanks to their beauty and functionality, homeowners who opt for these coverings also tend to increase their home’s value.

Composite Shutters

Made out of PVC of vinyl, composite shutters have a hollow core that creates an air pocket resistant to heat transfer. This type of insulation effect prevents outside temperatures from getting in. And thanks to today’s technology and style options, faux wood options look nearly identical to natural wood shutters.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a popular choice among homeowners of all types. Especially if you’re looking to add a modern touch while also saving on your energy bill, plantation shutters are a great option.
