Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains add an ambience of refinement and vibrance to your rooms. They also coordinate well with window shutters in Columbia, creating a statement in any house.

You may like one, or use them together to complement your interior design. Curtains could seem like a natural selection, but there are a few things to consider before you choose.

What Makes Louver Shop of Columbia’s Shutters Noteworthy

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

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom create our shutters to fit your windows, no matter the size or shape. This allows for fewer places in your windows for frigid outdoor temperatures to come through and warm indoor air to get out.

This is especially important since windows are the biggest culprit for energy loss. The U.S. Department of Energy determined they can let out 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 prospective utility savings you can see on your heating and cooling bill season after season.

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

2. Enhanced Light Control

Considering curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t possess the adaptability that shutters offer. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control lets you regulate your shutters just how you want them. All while stopping the tilt bar from cutting off your view.

3. Custom Crafted for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Columbia, we build shutters to precisely fit your windows. You can determine your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Painless to Clean

Shutters are not complicated to clean. All you need is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may call for complicated washing or costly dry cleaning more often.

Feel Warmer this Winter with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room feel comfy, plantation shutters create a beautiful look that can keep your utility bills down.
