Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains offer a sense of sophistication and vibrance to your home. They also look great with window shutters in Myrtle Beach, generating a statement in any living space.

You might prefer one, or use the two to complement your space’s design. Curtains might seem like a cozy option, but there are a number of things to think about before you decide.

What Makes Louver Shop of Myrtle Beach’s Shutters Noteworthy

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

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom produce our shutters to conform to your windows, never mind the size or shape. This creates fewer gaps in your windows for cool outdoor air to come through and warm indoor air to escape.

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

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

In the spring and summer, you can open your windows while choosing to keep your shutters open or shut. This provides more power over ventilation without your window treatments moving in the breeze.

2. Upgraded Light Control

Considering curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t give you the options that shutters do. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control grants you the ability to regulate your shutters just how you like them. All while stopping the tilt bar from ruining your view.

3. Custom Built for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Myrtle Beach, we produce shutters to perfectly fit your windows. You can determine your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Simple to Clean

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

Keep Warmer on Chilly Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room feel warmer, plantation shutters provide a luxurious look that can keep your heating and cooling expenses down.
