Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains give an atmosphere of sophistication and vibrance to your space. They also coordinate well with window shutters in Charlotte, resulting in a statement in any living space.

What Makes Louver Shop of Charlotte’s Shutters Stand Out

Here are some reasons why shutters are nice additions to your space.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom create our shutters to fit your windows, regardless of size or shape. This creates fewer places in your windows for cold outdoor drafts to squeeze through and treated indoor air to get out.

This is notably important since windows are the most responsible culprit for energy loss. The U.S. Department of Energy approximates they can bleed up to 30% of your space’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood™ Shutters insulate up to three times more efficiently than wood shutters. That’s possible electricity savings you can find on your heating and cooling bill year-round.

In the summer, you can open your windows while choosing to keep your shutters open or shut. This gives you more command over ventilation without your window treatments rattling in the air current.

2. Enhanced Light Control

Because curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t give you the options that shutters extend. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control grants you the ability to set your shutters just how you like them. All while keeping the tilt bar from cutting off your view.

3. Custom Built for Your Windows

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

4. Simple to Clean

Shutters are a breeze to clean. All you want is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may demand time-consuming washing or costly dry cleaning on a regular basis.

Stay Warmer During Cold Days with Our Shutters

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