Sacramento Shutters – Understand the Importance of Solar Heat Control
When faced with the warm temperatures and vibrant sun of Sacramento, shutters that provide solar heat control are in high demand. Although the solar energy from the sun is welcome in the winter, it makes rooms uncomfortable in the summer and substantially drives up energy bills.
Many shutter styles that we carry here at Danmer are designed to specifically reduce solar heat passing through your windows. This is referred to as Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC). When you have a lower SHGC, your home is better protected from the sun’s heat.
