Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains provide a touch of refinement and vibrance to your space. They also coordinate well with window shutters in Macon, making a statement in any living space.

You may select just one style, or use the two to complement your space’s design. Curtains may seem like a homey option, but there are some things to review before you decide.

Louver Shop of Macon give you a complimentary, in-home consultation that helps you decide. It’s easy to find out what fits with your house when we deliver the showroom to your living room. We’ll review the multiple options in all the different styles, all for free and with no obligation. Schedule yours today for local, personal service and a comprehensive price quote.

What Makes Louver Shop of Macon’s Shutters Noteworthy

Here are some reasons why shutters are great additions to your home.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom craft our shutters to suit your windows, never mind the size or shape. This creates fewer places in your windows for cold outdoor drafts to sneak through and treated indoor air to leave.

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

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

In the summer, you can open your windows while choosing to keep your shutters open or shut. This lets you have more power over ventilation without your window treatments clattering in the wind.

2. Enhanced Light Control

Since curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t provide the flexibility that shutters can. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control allows you to leave your shutters just how you like them. All while stopping the tilt bar from cutting off your view.

3. Custom Built for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Macon, we produce shutters to specifically fit your windows. You can decide your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Not Difficult to Clean

Shutters are not complicated to clean. All you need is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may need time-consuming washing or pricey dry cleaning more often.

Feel Warmer on Chilly Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room seem cozier, plantation shutters give a gorgeous look that can keep your electricity costs down.
