Eco-friendly Window Shutters

Why are Window Shutters Environmentally Friendly?

Choosing to take an eco-friendly approach to your home not only benefits the environment, but can also save you money in the long term. By choosing the most effective window coverings for your home, you can help you to keep your energy and maintenance costs down, and contribute to making your home greener.

Environmental Benefits of Window Shutters

Fabric curtains and venetian blinds will last from two to eight years, depending on the materials they are made from and how well they’re maintained. Fabric curtains require regular washing, either by hand or in the washing machine, in order to prevent dust and dirt from damaging the fabric. Fabric curtains can also absorb unpleasant odours from around the home. Plantation Style window shutters, which are made from timber or PVC, can last for up to 20 years without replacement. Importantly, shutters don’t need to be removed to be cleaned, and require only a light dust or vacuum every week or so. Window shutters simply don’t attract the maintenance costs associated with other window coverings, such as water, washing liquid and repair costs. They will also have to be replaced much less frequently. This ease of maintenance will help to reduce your carbon footprint and save you time.

Window shutters also keep warmth in during winter and out during summer, much more effectively than curtains or venetians. This will save you money in energy costs and also help you to create a more energy-efficient, greener home.
