Do Shutters Help Insulate Windows?

Yes, shutters can help insulate windows. Different shutters provide different levels of insulation. With the normal American homeowner parting with $661 annually on heating expenses, it’s not unexpected that families are searching for ways to lower home heating and cooling expenses.
