Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains provide a touch of refinement and vibrance to your rooms. They also work well with window shutters in Philadelphia, creating a statement in any room.

What Makes Louver Shop of Philadelphia’s Shutters Stand Out

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

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom craft our shutters to conform to your windows, never mind the size or shape. This allows for fewer breaks in your windows for cool outdoor drafts to sneak through and warm indoor air to get out.

This is specifically essential since windows are the guiltiest culprit for heating 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 more effectively than wood shutters. That’s possible utility savings you can recognize on your heating and cooling bill year-round.

In the summer, you can open your windows while leaving your shutters open or shut. This gives you more control over ventilation without your window treatments clinking in the breeze.

2. Increased Light Control

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

3. Custom Made for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Philadelphia, we make shutters to precisely fit your windows. You can choose your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Not Difficult to Clean

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

Feel Warmer on Chilly Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room appear warmer, plantation shutters create a luxurious look that can keep your energy costs down.
