Due to South Florida’s year-round heat, it is important to ensure you and your family will always stay cool when at home. One investment that will both save you money and keep you refreshed is installing plantation shutters in your home.
If you’re on the market for new window treatments, check out these four reasons why plantation shutters are the perfect addition to your home.
Lower your electricity bill
Plantation shutters provide the benefit of blocking out the intense UV rays that the Florida sun emits throughout the day. Though this benefit helps you stay cool in your home, it also benefits your wallet.
Florida electricity bills can often be expensive due to the amount of work our AC units must do to keep our homes cool. Since shutters block out the amount of heat entering your home, your AC unit will not have to work as hard to keep your home cool, resulting in a lower electricity bill and a more comfortable home for you and your family.
Provide the privacy you need to feel safe in your home
You can feel like a fish in a fish bowl when not having your windows covered adequately. Luckily, plantation shutters offer the privacy you need at home. Even when your shutters are open, people cannot easily see into your windows. Plantation shutters allow you to completely block out any light in case you want to take a mid-day nap.
Increase property value
Shutters aren’t a waste of money when it comes to the value of your home. Plantation shutters come with the benefit of being durable, so they last for years down the line. They also make your house look more traditional and contemporary. These shutters will make your home look stylish, making it easier to sell your home and stand out in the competitive housing market.
Regular maintenance is easy with plantation shutters. You do not have to take them apart to clean them. Instead, all you must do is take a damp cloth and wipe away the dirt and dust from your shutters. If you make this part of your cleaning routine, your shutters will look new for many years to come
