Keep Your Cool
Operable louvered shutters are very effective at reducing solar heat gain during the summer months. The louvers in the shutter allow ocean breezes to flow into the home while the body of the shutters blocks most of the hot sunlight while still allowing for some sunlight to illuminate the room.
Inside coastal cities along the gulf and Atlantic Ocean, exterior shutters can be closed while the window itself is open, still allowing for a cooling breeze to pass through the room.
Heat Your Home
Panel or Board and Batten style shutters, if installed tightly against the outer window trim, will provide an effective seal between the window pane and the shutter when closed. This will reduce the amount of harsh winter winds making their way into your home.
