When The Southern California Weather Gets Colder - And How To Insulate Your Windows Against It11/18/2015Kimball Jones During these winter months, the weather gets colder in Southern California. And when you see how that affects your energy bill, you’ll want some tips on how to scale it down. Insulating your windows goes a long way toward saving energy during the this season’s colder climate. Learn about these three ways for insulating your windows against the cooling temperatures in Southern California. Traditional Sealing Kits Weatherproofing kits are available in hardware stores in the Southern California area. They include a guide on where to place the tape, the length of film to cut, and how to shrink the film with a blowdryer. This decreases heat loss and drafts. Yet more and more homeowners look for alternatives to weatherproofing kits when they have multiple windows to cover. And insulating a window with shrink film means the window is closed until the weather warms up. If these are challenges for you, insulating window treatments, like Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a better option. Polywood Shutters Constructed from a wood polymer, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment money can buy in the Southern California area. They insulate 70% better than a comparable wood shutter, and 1600% better than an aluminum blind. Polywood decreases airflow by up to 45% and blocks temperature by 30°. The louver material, the shutter frame, and the weather stripping make Polywood shutters the best choice for insulating your house. Solar Gard Window Film Apply Solar Gard window film to the window pane through every season. It does not affect your window’s look like an insulating kit does. And the thing people love about Solar Gard is the option to open the window any time you want since the film doesn’t cover the edges. Solar Gard is particularly beneficial during Southern California’s cooler seasons because it decreases heat transfer through the window. This way, the cold air stays out and the heat of the room doesn’t leave. How To Buy Insulating Shutters For Your Windows In Southern California Easy!
