Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains add a sense of refinement and vibrance to your house. They also look great with window shutters in Raleigh, resulting in a statement in any house.

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

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

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom craft our shutters to match your windows, no matter the size or shape. This allows for fewer places in your windows for frigid outdoor temperatures to sneak through and heated indoor air to get out.

This is especially crucial since windows are the worst culprit for heat loss. The U.S. Department of Energy has estimated 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 potential electricity savings you can note on your heating and cooling bill season after season.

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

2. Upgraded Light Control

Because curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t provide the adaptability that shutters can. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control lets you set your shutters just how you prefer them. All while keeping the tilt bar from closing off your view.

3. Custom Built for Your Windows

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

4. Easy to Clean

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

Keep Warmer on Chilly Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room feel more comfortable, plantation shutters give a rich look that can keep your heating and cooling expenses down.
