Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains provide a sense of grandeur and vibrance to your house. They also work well with window shutters in Cincinnati, creating a statement in any room.

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

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

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom craft our shutters to match your windows, never mind the size or shape. This allows for fewer gaps in your windows for frigid outdoor air to squeeze through and warm indoor air to escape.

This is incredibly important since windows are the largest culprit for heat loss. The U.S. Department of Energy approximates 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 prospective electricity savings you can notice on your heating and cooling bill the whole year.

In the warmer seasons, you can open your windows while keeping your shutters open or shut. This lets you have more command over ventilation without your window treatments clinking in the air current.

2. Enhanced Light Control

Since curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t provide the flexibility that shutters do. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control lets you regulate your shutters just how you like them. All while preventing the tilt bar from closing off your view.

3. Custom Built for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Cincinnati, we build shutters to specifically fit your windows. You can choose your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Painless to Clean

Shutters are easy to clean. All you need is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may require time-consuming washing or pricey dry cleaning on a regular basis.

Stay Warmer on Chilly Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room appear comfy, plantation shutters give a rich look that can keep your electricity costs down.
