Q. Are Enviroblind Exterior Rolling Shutters energy efficient?
A. Definitely! Testing has proven that our Rolling Window Shutters provide excellent insulation from heat and cold and can significantly improve the R-value of your windows. Think of parking your car inside the garage on a hot day. The car stays MUCH cooler, right? Far cooler than it would if you just used sunshades on your windshield. That's the same effect that Enviroblind rolling exterior shutters provide.
Outdoor Roll Shutters are very efficient because the heat energy never even touches the windows. The rolling shutters also create an air space between the shutters and the window, and this air space serves as an additional energy barrier. This system produces a strong insulating effect that greatly improves the "R" value of your windows and doors over 50%.
Independent tests have proven that Enviroblind Rolling Security Shutters reduce energy loss through unprotected glass in windows and doors. In fact, when the rolling shutters are closed they can increase the insulation value of glass in windows and doors from R 2.1 to R 4.5. Translate this R 2.4 increase in insulation efficiency into energy and financial savings, and it becomes clear why more and more homes, businesses and schools are including Exterior Roll Down Shutters in their energy savings plans.
