Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains provide an ambience of grandeur 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 reasons 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 allows for fewer breaks in your windows for chilly outdoor air to come through and heated indoor air to leave.

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

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

In the warmer times, you can open your windows while choosing to keep your shutters open or shut. This affords you more influence over ventilation without your window treatments clattering in the breeze.

2. Increased Light Control

Because curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t give you the flexibility 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 ruining your view.

3. Tailor Made for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Pittsburgh, we build shutters to precisely 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 want is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may demand more difficult washing or costly dry cleaning on a regular basis.

Stay 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.
