Staying Cool While Saving Money

Basswood_Shutters_picSummer has finally hit the Santa Clarita valley, with beaming sunshine and near triple digit temperatures.  With the summer heat turning your home into an oven, it’s important to keep cool without breaking the bank.

One way to stay cool, if you want to break the bank is to blast the air conditioning. An alternative option that is energy efficient and easier on your pocket book is shutters. Indoor shutters are not only available in a variety of styles, they provide natural light when desired. Depending on your personal preference, shutters can come in stains such as oak, pine, mahogany, walnut and cherry.   

The type of shutters that you can count on to keep your home cool while saving energy are basswood interior wood shutters. Basswood shutters are very straight and have a fine and uniform texture. Some other great attributes about basswood shutters are, they do not warp, they are lightweight yet strong, and they have superior gluing and finishing properties and are low in resin. Also, Basswood is recyclable, biodegradable and renewable.

"Many customers prefer for us to match the stain color for the shutters that they currently have on the kitchen cabinets, we can do that" said Krista Jaimes of Alpine Shutters.
