Do Rolling Shutters Keep Heat In And Out?

Rolling shutters come with a slew of different benefits when installed at a residential property. From improved security and privacy to black-out capabilities and noise reduction, rolling shutters are a home improvement that offers much more than meets the eye. One of the lesser-known benefits of rolling shutters is their ability to provide additional insulation to a home. This means that rolling shutters can keep heated air in during the winter and help keep the house cool during the summer months. In this post from the Texas Rolling Shutters & Screens blog, we’ll discuss how rolling shutters can be used to keep heat in and out of a home.

Foam Core Slats: Stopping 99% Of Radiant Heat 

Our rolling shutters can block radiant heat from making its way into the home due to the foam-filled slats of our system. Radiant heat is often the reason why air conditioning units struggle to keep up with the desired temperature set on the thermostat. Additionally, radiant heat can be responsible for certain rooms being much hotter than others. When our rolling shutters are deployed, 99% of the radiant heat that would be making its way into your home is blocked entirely.  Installing rolling shutters is a reliable way to shade your windows and block radiant heat, allowing you to keep your house cool in the hot summer months. 

Rolling Shutters Create An Insulating Cell Between Windows 

When you deploy our rolling shutters completely, it creates a pocket of air between the shutter and the window. This pocket of air creates an insulation cell that helps regulate the temperature inside of the home. With Texas Rolling Shutters & Screens, our shutters pair this insulating cell with our foam-filled slats to create the ultimate in exterior insulation technology for the home. Expect a cooler air conditioner during the summer months and a warm and toasty heater during the winter with rolling shutters from Texas Rolling Shutters & Screens.
