Once a feature of almost every home in the world before air-conditioning and heating were developed, window shutters are now coming back into fashion big time, and for a good reason. Modern PolyShield shutters are stunningly stylish and offer some remarkable benefits, many of which can save you money with their ability to make your home more energy efficient.
Let’s look at the major benefits of PolyShield Shutters:
1. PolyShield Shutters Can Reduce Your Energy Bills
The very reason that shutters were originally fitted to home windows was that they keep heat in. Up to 30% of a room’s warmth can be lost through its windows. The surface of the glass, exposed to the outside air is cold, and when the warm air in the room reaches it, it loses its heat and drops to the floor. More warm air is then exposed to the glass, is cooled, and the cycle continues, resulting in an uncomfortable room temperature.
By fitting shutters, a large amount of this heat loss can be avoided, meaning it will take less heating to keep your home at the temperature you want. And energy efficiency is not only good for your wallet through lower energy bills, but also good for the planet.
2. Shutters Are Good, PolyShield Shutters Are Better
Most shutters are going to help you save on heating or cooling your home, but PolyShield Shutters do it more efficiently! This eco-friendly material insulates up to 70% more efficiently than wooden shutters and an astonishing 1600% more efficiently than aluminium blinds. If you’re considering installing shutters in your home, it’s hard to go past a product that will make your house and your heating bill look great.
3. Save On Maintenance While You’re at It
Unlike wooden shutters, PolyShield Shutters are made from a stylish, durable material that is UV stabilised to ensure that they don’t fade over time or require repainting. PolyShield Shutters are engineered to withstand extremes of heat, humidity, they are fire-retardant and completely impervious to termites. Put simply, the elegant PolyShield Shutters you install today will look just as good in the decades to come. You’re not just saving on energy bills; you’re also saving on maintenance and upkeep.
4. A Beautiful Window Feature That’s Beautifully Versatile
Another useful attribute of the PolyShield material is its water resistance. This makes PolyShield Shutters an ideal choice for climates that have high humidity, but even if you don’t live in a high humidity environment, the water-resistant properties mean you can use PolyShield Shutters in places where traditional wooden shutters could potentially warp. For example, over a sink, in a bathroom, or even near a swimming pool.
5. An Australian-made product for Australian conditions
If you do some research online, you’ll find that most shutters currently available in Australia are manufactured overseas and imported. PolyShield Shutters are proudly made right here in Australia to the highest of manufacturing standards, so you can enjoy their stylish contemporary looks and benefits while supporting top Australian workers.
