Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains give a feel of sophistication and vibrance to your home. They also coordinate well with window shutters in Columbus, generating a statement in any house.

What Makes Louver Shop of Columbus’s Shutters Stand Out

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

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom produce our shutters to match your windows, regardless of size or shape. This leaves fewer places in your windows for cool outdoor air to sneak through and heated indoor air to escape.

This is incredibly useful since windows are the most responsible culprit for heating loss. The U.S. Department of Energy has estimated they can bleed up to 30% of your home’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood™ Shutters insulate up to three times more effectively than wood shutters. That’s potential energy savings you can find 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 affords you more control over ventilation without your window treatments clinking in the air current.

2. Upgraded Light Control

Considering curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t possess the flexibility that shutters can. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control lets you fix your shutters just how you prefer them. All while stopping the tilt bar from blocking your view.

3. Custom Crafted for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Columbus, we craft shutters to accurately fit your windows. You can pick your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Painless to Clean

Shutters are simple to clean. All you require is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may call for complicated washing or pricey dry cleaning fairly often.

Keep Warmer on Cold Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room feel warmer, plantation shutters provide a beautiful look that can keep your electricity costs down.
