By choosing plantation shutters for your heat exposure windows, you can greatly control the summertime sizzle. Why? Because, shutters are much more substantive then most other types of blinds. The heat simply has a harder time radiating through the thickness of the rails, stiles and louvers. Additionally, shutters when fully closed have only minor gaps. This means less heat leakage into your space.
Also, when the sun is not directly on the window - a slight tilt of the louvers will still control the outdoor warmth while allowing various light options. Without a doubt, shutters are one of the top window covering choices for controlling the temperature allowed through your window openings. They are also one of the most beautiful.
