Do shutters help keep your home warm in winter?

Posted on 5th October 2021 by Castle Hill Shutters


As the temperature drops and we’re forced to give in and turn the heating on, many of us are conscious about the added cost of keeping our homes warm during winter.

This is an issue which is going to be more prevalent than ever as the UK faces a huge increase in gas prices. 15 million households have already seen their energy bills increase by 12% and Ofgem has warned that the cap is set to go up again in 2022.

At a time like this, it’s natural to wonder how you can stay warm without having to pay an absolute fortune for it.

One of the most common questions we receive is; ‘do shutters help keep your home warm in winter?’ The simple answer to this is, absolutely! Below we discuss how this valuable addition can keep the cold out and help you save money on your energy bills.

Extra insulation

 Up to 25% of the heat in your home is lost through windows. If they’re poorly insulated, you’re likely to face a losing battle no matter how high you have the heating turned up.

When you have shutters, cold air gets trapped in the gap between them and the windows. While good quality curtains can have the same effect, shutters are much thicker and are therefore a better option for improving insulation.

You can let light in while keeping the cold out

 We all love a nice bright home and want to let in as much light as possible during the day. If your windows are letting in a lot of cold air however, this can be a problem.

As shutters have slats, it means you can open them to let in as much light as possible while still providing a barrier against any cold draughts. This also means that the natural sunlight can help to heat your home so you don’t have to rely on the heating all day.

They’re great at retaining heat

 Glass doesn’t retain heat very well which is why we lose so much from our windows. Shutters are much thicker which is great for keeping any precious heat inside your home. Having them installed is like having double or even triple glazing. Not only is this great for saving money on your household bills, it also means you can reduce the impact you’re having on the environment.

They keep unwanted draughts out

 If you’ve ever sat near a poorly insulated window, you’ve no doubt felt how much of a draught comes through. This is the last thing you want in winter, especially as it tends to be windier at this time of year.

Shutters offer an extra barrier against the elements which means that unwanted draughts from cold winds don’t make their way inside. Thanks to the solid material shutters are made from, it means they provide a much more effective solution compared to curtains or blinds.
