Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains offer a feel of grandeur and vibrance to your home. They also look great with window shutters in Boston, making a statement in any room.

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

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

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom produce our shutters to fit your windows, regardless of size or shape. This creates fewer gaps in your windows for frigid outdoor temperatures to sneak through and warm indoor air to get out.

This is notably critical since windows are the largest culprit for heating loss. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates they can bleed 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 prospective energy savings you can find on your heating and cooling bill year-round.

In the spring and summer, you can open your windows while keeping your shutters open or shut. This gives you more control over ventilation without your window treatments moving in the air current.

2. Better Light Control

Because curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t possess the flexibility that shutters extend. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control lets you fix 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 Boston, we produce shutters to accurately fit your windows. You can decide your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Easy to Clean

Shutters are easy to clean. All you require is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may require a lot of effort for washing or costly dry cleaning on a regular basis.

Stay Warmer on Cold Days with Our Shutters

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