Do shutters keep in the heat?

Shutters are a great way to retain the heat in a home. Window shutters effectively add a layer of insulation to your windows, and when they are fully shut, they will keep the warm air in and the cold air out by blocking the money-sucking drafts. Shutters provide a more effective solution to curtains or blinds for thermal retention.
