Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

What Makes Louver Shop of Western Carolina’s Shutters Rise Above the Competition

Here are some proof of why shutters are nice additions to your window coverings.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom produce our shutters to fit your windows, never mind the size or shape. This allows for fewer places in your windows for cold outdoor air to come through and treated indoor air to escape.

This is incredibly critical since windows are the biggest culprit for heat loss. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates they can leak up to 30% of your family’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood™ Shutters insulate up to three times better than wood shutters. That’s potential utility savings you can recognize on your heating and cooling bill year-round.

In the summer, you can open your windows while keeping your shutters open or shut. This gives you more control over ventilation without your window treatments clattering in the breeze.

2. Better Light Control

Since curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t provide the options that shutters can. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control lets you set your shutters just how you like them. All while prohibiting the tilt bar from blocking your view.

3. Custom Made for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Western Carolina, we make shutters to precisely fit your windows. You can decide your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Easy to Clean

Shutters are simple to clean. All you want is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may need complicated washing or costly dry cleaning fairly often.

Keep Warmer on Chilly Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room seem comfy, plantation shutters offer a beautiful look that can keep your utility charges down.
