Using roller shutters for securing your home in Adelaide is certainly a popular choice- but is it a great option or is it even one of the 3 top reasons to install roller shutters?
While security is still a nice benefit of roller shutters, there are a number of reasons to install roller shutters which, in my opinion provide even more value. In this post we look at the 3 best reasons to install roller shutters (in our opinion- excluding extruded or fire rated slat profiles).
Roller Shutters Are Excellent for Insulation
This external thermal mass created by roller shutters make a big difference when it comes to insulating your home. Research has shown that as much as 40% of all heat which escapes during winter is from windows and heat gain from an unshaded window can be as much as 100 times that of a insulated wall.
This means that you are going to save money in summer by reducing the load on air conditioners if you need to use them at all. It is also going to help keep heat in your home during winter as well.
Roller Shutter Block Out Light
The second most useful reason to install roller shutters is to block out light. If installed correctly, shutters will create total darkness even in the middle of the day.
Roller Shutters Help Block Out Noise
There are certain times in our life when we just do’t want to be disturbed by the noises of suburbia, and roller shutters give a some control over this.
Those early morning rubbish pick ups, the dogs barking next door, the work man banging over the road. These are all times when we wish we could just turn them off. Unfortunately we can’t so lucky roller shutters are available to make our life more comfortable.
No matter how you look at it, roller shutters are a valuable asset to any home. If you like the look then they are certainly worth the investment. Using quality Australian made shutters from companies like Ozroll and CW Products will ensure you have a quality product which will last well into the decades.
