Many homeowners prefer to replace their drapes the moment they get dusty or dirty. While you can throw them in the wash, most people are sensitive to dust and pollen, which can get trapped easily in drapes. While traditional plastic blinds can work well, they break easily and are hard to clean.
Window shutter systems are an alternative to both drapes and curtains, and they look more attractive than other options. They have an appropriate finish on both sides that prevents colour fading, but they never go out of style. If you choose plantation shutters, that are now popular again, you’ll find their timeless beauty to work well with almost any décor.
Window shutter systems can help you keep the sunlight out of the home or control how much light you get. Along with that, they can also control the temperature of your home. When you close the shutters fully, no sunlight can get inside, which means your air conditioner doesn’t have to work overtime. Plus, you can choose to open the plantation shutters slightly to let in a little light so that you don’t have to waste energy by using your artificial lights or lamps.
At SP Screens, they know that most homeowners tend to focus on how much money they can save on energy. While you should consider window shutter systems an investment that can produce a return over time, you should understand that the shutters can save you money. If you keep them closed most of the day, or when the sun is brightest in that area, it keeps the home cooler. Plus, you can still use the light produced by the sun by tilting the blades of the shutters downward or upward. Pairing them with security screens ensures that you can open the shutters and keep out unwanted pests.
