Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains provide an ambience of refinement and vibrance to your space. They also look great with window shutters in Pittsburgh, making a statement in any house.

What Makes Louver Shop of Pittsburgh’s Shutters Stand Out

Here are some examples of why shutters are useful additions to your space.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom craft our shutters to suit your windows, regardless of size or shape. This leaves fewer breaks in your windows for cool outdoor air to come through and warm indoor air to get out.

This is especially useful since windows are the biggest culprit for energy loss. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates they can leak up to 30% of your space’s energy.

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

In the warmer seasons, you can open your windows while choosing to keep your shutters open or shut. This lets you have more influence over ventilation without your window treatments jangling in the breeze.

2. Increased Light Control

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

3. Tailor Made for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Pittsburgh, we build shutters to precisely fit your windows. You can pick your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Simple to Clean

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

Keep Warmer During Cold Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room appear warmer, plantation shutters provide a luxurious look that can keep your electricity charges down.
