Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains give a feel of refinement and vibrance to your space. They also work well with window shutters , generating a statement in any house.

What Makes Louver Shop’s Shutters Rise Above the Competition

Here are some reasons why shutters are great additions to your window coverings.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom craft our shutters to match your windows, regardless of size or shape. This leaves fewer places in your windows for chilly outdoor temperatures to come through and treated indoor air to get out.

This is specifically critical since windows are the worst culprit for heat loss. The U.S. Department of Energy determined they can leak up to 30% of your home’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood™ Shutters insulate up to three times more efficiently than wood shutters. That’s future utility savings you can notice on your heating and cooling bill season after season.

In the warmer times, you can open your windows while leaving your shutters open or shut. This provides more command over ventilation without your window treatments clinking in the wind.

2. Enhanced Light Control

Considering curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t provide the options that shutters do. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control allows you to fix your shutters just how you prefer them. All while preventing the tilt bar from cutting off your view.

3. Custom Made for Your Windows

At Louver Shop, we create shutters to perfectly fit your windows. You can pick your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Painless to Clean

Shutters are not difficult to clean. All you require is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may demand time-consuming washing or high-priced dry cleaning on a regular basis.

Stay Warmer During Cold Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room seem more comfortable, plantation shutters provide a rich look that can keep your electricity expenses down.
