Conservatory with white wooden shutters

Keeping our homes warm throughout the winter months is one of our main priorities, and we want to be sure that our family will feel comfortable when the temperatures drop. With energy prices rising, we are all looking for ways that we can keep our homes warm and our plantation shutters cost low. But have you thought about how plantation shutters, which are excellent insulators, can help to keep in the heat in your home?  

Here at Soul Shutters, we have put together a short post outlining how plantation window shutters can insulate and keep your home warm this winter. We supply and install luxurious made to measure wooden shutters in Kent for windows of all shapes and sizes. We bring life to your windows with our beautifully designed shutters, that are completely bespoke and made to fit your windows perfectly.

Bespoke Design to Fit Your Windows 

Plantation shutters are an excellent way to keep your home warm, and prevent heat from escaping through your windows because they are designed to fit your windows. Plantation shutter blinds are custom-made to fit the complete window coverage they are designed for, they will act as an extra layer between your window and your room. This will provide a physical barrier between the whole window shape and your room, meaning less heat will be lost through your window. This allows you to keep a warm and stable temperature in your home.

More Effective Than Curtains and Blinds  

Coverings like curtains and blinds can help to keep a certain amount of heat in, but they are nowhere near as effective as plantation shutters. Plantation shutters are made from a much thicker material than curtains, and don’t let the heat out of your home. So if you currently have curtains or blinds and are considering opting for plantation shutters to add extra insulation to your home, we highly recommend changing.

Reducing Your Heating Bills 

Plantation shutters keep the heat in your home and stop it from escaping through your windows, which in return will work to reduce your heating and energy bills. Plenty of heat escapes through our windows when we are not insulating them properly, which means that we will need to have the heating on more and end up spending more money on energy. Rather than turning the heating on, you can have plantation shutters installed and save money on your heating bills.
