HLF - Publication, Tuesday, October 21, 2008 5 Beating heat, cutting cold Write to Ask The Experts about individual problems in the home. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your question or fax Ask The Experts 9689 5399. HOMELIVING » ADVERTISING FEATURE ASK THE EXPERTS Lisa Miller believes shutters are a superb addition to the home and add beauty but wants to know do they have other benefits? Complete Blinds' co-owner Marty Keeble says one of the main benefits of installing shutters is that they reduce energy costs. ''It has been proven, for example, that an unshaded square metre of glass will let in almost as much heat as a one-bar radiator,'' he said. Is it important to choose a particular type of shutter? The choice of shutter is extremely important. Complete Blinds supplies and installs Norman Shutters who carry out wood-drying techniques in their research and development laboratories. This process ensures that there is a reduction in post-installation shrinking and swelling of all shutters. Can shrinking and swelling be a real problem? Wood shrinking and swelling is the main cause of poor alignment, loose closure and gaps in installed shutters. Over time, flawed shutter installation, construction and manufacturing shortcuts result in a decline of value and appearance and an increase in energy usage and costs. Does the area we live in affect our choice of shutters? The area needs to be taken into account. Our wood- conditioning specialists determine the humidity conditions of each location where installation is to take place. The wood for each order is then dried to conditions emulating those of the customer's home. Drying to these measured environmental conditions ensures the shutters will close tightly and without any gaps. The result is a more solid and beautiful shutter for years to come. What about supply and installation? We are specialists in supply and installation of stylish blinds and shutters.
