Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains provide a sense of sophistication and vibrance to your house. They also look great with window shutters in Albany, resulting in a statement in any living space.

You might prefer one, or use them together to complement your home design. Curtains may seem like a comfortable selection, but there are a couple things to consider before you choose.

What Makes Louver Shop of South Georgia’s Shutters Noteworthy

Here are some reasons why shutters are great additions to your home.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom craft our shutters to suit your windows, never mind the size or shape. This allows for fewer places in your windows for cool outdoor drafts to sneak through and heated indoor air to leave.

This is especially essential since windows are the largest culprit for heat loss. The U.S. Department of Energy has estimated they can leak up to 30% of your house’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood™ Shutters insulate up to three times more effectively than wood shutters. That’s future electricity savings you can see on your heating and cooling bill the whole year.

In the summer, you can open your windows while leaving your shutters open or shut. This lets you have more power over ventilation without your window treatments jangling in the breeze.

2. Enhanced Light Control

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

3. Tailor Made for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of South Georgia, we make shutters to precisely 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 want is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may need a lot of effort for washing or costly dry cleaning more often.

Feel Warmer on Chilly Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room seem more comfortable, plantation shutters provide an upscale look that can keep your utility costs down.
