Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains give an atmosphere of sophistication and vibrance to your rooms. They also coordinate well with window shutters in Huntsville, making a statement in any room.

You may go with one over the other, or use both to complement your home design. Curtains could seem like a comfortable selection, but there are a few things to go over before you choose.

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

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

1. Reduced Heat Loss

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

This is specifically important since windows are the worst culprit for heating loss. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates they can let out up to 30% of your family’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood™ Shutters insulate up to three times better than wood shutters. That’s potential energy savings you can notice on your heating and cooling bill season after season.

In the warmer times, you can open your windows while choosing to keep your shutters open or shut. This provides more influence over ventilation without your window treatments jangling in the air current.

2. Increased Light Control

Considering curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t possess the adaptability that shutters do. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control grants you the ability to adjust your shutters just how you like them. All while keeping the tilt bar from blocking your view.

3. Custom Crafted for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of North Alabama, we create shutters to accurately fit your windows. You can select your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Straightforward to Clean

Shutters are not difficult to clean. All you require is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may demand more difficult washing or pricey dry cleaning fairly often.

Keep Warmer on Chilly Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room appear cozier, plantation shutters create a gorgeous look that can keep your electricity expenses down.
