A frosty winter brings plummeting temperatures and a rise in heating costs, leaving many families significantly out of pocket just to keep their homes warm and comfortable. One great way to maximise your energy savings and reduce your power bills is to install roller shutters on your windows. Nu Style Shutters is one of the leading roller shutter supplies in Perth, with almost 20 years’ experience providing high quality external window shutter and blind solutions to homes and businesses throughout WA. Read on to learn how roller shutters can help save you money this winter.
Roller Shutters Prevent Heat Escaping from Your Home
According to sustainability research, a single pane of glass can lose almost 10 times more heat than the same area of insulated wall. If you combine that with unsealed gaps around windows, windows can account for up to 25% of all heat loss during winter. This leads to your home feeling cold and a big surge in your heating bills. High-density, custom roller shutters provide highly effective insulation that can significantly reduce the heat transfer through windows, ensuring your home retains its warmth, reducing the need to turn up the thermostat and keeping your bills lower.
What Makes Roller Shutters an Efficient Insulation System?
High quality roller shutters are made from lightweight yet extremely strong aluminium which gives the shutters excellent insulation qualities. In addition, the curtain area of our Nu Style roller shutters
consists of an aluminium skin injected with a (CFC free) polyurethane foam for added strength and insulation.
Additional Benefits of Having Roller Shutters During Winter
Retaining heat and reducing your bills in winter are incredible advantages of roller shutter installation, but there’s many other reasons you should consider having them installed on your windows in time for winter:
- Wintery weather such as rain and storms can make road noise much louder, so if you live near a busy road, roller shutters will reduce traffic noise from entering your home.
- Cold air isn’t the only bad thing that can enter your home through a window, windows are the most common entry point for thieves. Roller shutters boost your home security, keeping your family and your possessions safer.
- Winter storms can wreak havoc on homes, with dust, dirt and debris flying through the air. High quality roller shutters can protect your home from costly and inconvenient storm damage.
