Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains offer an atmosphere of elegance and vibrance to your home. They also coordinate well with window shutters in San Antonio, generating a statement in any house.

You may go with one, or use the two to complement your interior design. Curtains could seem like a homey choice, but there are a few things to review before you choose.

Louver Shop of San Antonio provides a free-of-charge, in-home consultation that helps you decide. It’s easy to find out what fits with your home when we deliver the showroom to your living room. We’ll review the collection of options in all the different styles, all with no charge or obligation. Organize yours today for local, individualized service and complete price quote.

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

Here are some reasons why shutters are helpful additions to your window coverings.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom create our shutters to suit your windows, regardless of size or shape. This allows for fewer places in your windows for chilly outdoor air to come through and warm indoor air to escape.

This is especially useful since windows are the most responsible culprit for energy loss. The U.S. Department of Energy approximates they can let out up to 30% of your home’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood™ Shutters insulate up to three times more effectively than wood shutters. That’s prospective energy savings you can note on your heating and cooling bill all year.

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

2. Increased Light Control

Since curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t have the flexibility that shutters can. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control lets you fix your shutters just how you like them. All while stopping the tilt bar from blocking your view.

3. Tailor Made for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of San Antonio, we create shutters to specifically fit your windows. You can select 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 need complicated washing or expensive dry cleaning more often.

Feel Warmer During Cold Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room seem cozier, plantation shutters provide a gorgeous look that can keep your utility bills down.
