Contrary to popular belief, going green isn’t just a trend, but a necessity. Now more than ever, homeowners are looking at the benefits of taking an environmental approach to everything they do, including their home decor. Even the window coverings that they choose can make a difference in their environmental impact and carbon emissions.
Southern Accent Shutters is glad to offer a hand in this noble purpose by developing and distributing eco-friendly shutters in Smithfield, NC.
Make Your Home Greener With Eco-Friendly Shutters
Choosing eco-friendly shutters to decorate and insulate your Smithfield, NC home is not only an environmentally conscious decision, but it can also help you save money in the long run.
Regardless of the material you choose for your shutters - real or faux wood -, you can rest assured they will likely last up to 20 years, requiring very little maintenance and needing much fewer resources and time to keep them clean. All you need is a cloth and a cool blow dryer to keep them dust-free and functioning correctly.
Fabric curtains, on the contrary, can only last a maximum of eight years, while also requiring regular washing, either by hand or in the washing machine, leading to much higher energy use and negative impacts on the environment.
Also, our shutters’ insulation properties mean your home will need less heating during the winter and less A/C during the summer. Our shutters maintain a stable temperature inside the home, reducing carbon emissions and saving you money in the process.
Going with a local supplier such as Southern Accent Shutters also means that fewer resources are needed to transport materials and finished shutters, as they are all custom made in our Clayton, NC plant. Furthermore, our poplar wood comes straight from the Appalachian Forest Boundary, a US Forest Service certified renewable resource. In all of these ways and so many more, you save yourself and the environment when you choose us.
