Save Hundreds This Year with Shuttercover

Shuttercover - Winterize your home and save hundreds.

As someone who lives with an HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Cooling) guy, I know about sealing up places where cold air can get in and warm air can escape. Winterizing the house is something that takes Teach about a month to fully be done. There is the wood stove cleaning, the fireplace, storm windows, blah, blah, blah...

With the cost of oil, wood, or whatever you use to heat your house there is no reason to allow those dollars to slip through easily sealed areas of your home. Teach was in the process of creating his own sealers when the box from Shuttercover came in. 

Shuttercover is a ¼-inch thick, Low-E reflective foil insulation.  This type of insulation can stop up to 97% of radiant heat transfer, adding significant energy savings. One side has a white coating to blend in with the surrounding ceiling.  The square can be trimmed to fit any shutter size up to 48 inches by 48 inches. 

This afternoon Teach got to work on covering our central air vents and the attic stairs. It was so easy. He measured and cut what he needed. Then he took the velco tape that was included and placed it on the vent covers. Taking the Shutter Cover he placed it over the covers. Wah la. Easy peasy.

Check out how easy it is:

Why wouldn't you want to use this. Who couldn't use an energy savings this year.

Depending on the size you need prices range from $18.50 - $47.50 for the 48x60 piece.

You can purchase online here or pick up locally at Ace, Lowes, Grainger, Ebay, Herrman Lumber Company, Meeks and Sutherlands.

What I Can Tell You:
Who wouldn't want to save money on their energy costs!
Teach thought it was awesome and he is not easily impressed.
You don't need a man to do it for you ladies, you can totally do it yourself.
Keeping drafts out keep you smiling. Who really likes being cold?
