And, when paired with Solar Gard window film, Polywood shutters are your ideal choice for maximum savings on your energy bills. The Polywood Shutter Insulation System Shutters are the most energy-efficient window treatment. And our Polywood shutters, with their advanced insulation system, are the best energy saving shutters in Southern California – if not the US. We take care to craft every part of our Polywood Shutters, keeping energy efficiency in mind to give you the most energy savings. The unique solid polymer material Polywood is manufactured from can block airflow because of its thickness. This transforms these shutters into a natural insulator. You can block more temperature and light than any other shutter by sealing shut the weather-stripping pieces on the sides of the shutter. This effectively limits heat transfer around the panels in both the heat of summer and the cold of winter in Southern California. Top that off with a heat-reflective paint, and you get a shutter that is not only beautiful but also remarkably energy efficient. In fact, Polywood shutters insulate up to 70% better than a comparable wood shutter. A third party thermal test (forward looking infrared) showed that the Polywood Shutter Insulating System blocked as much as 30 degrees of temperature coming through the window. This means the HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard. Here’s how Polywood gives you more energy savings than any other shutter: Blocks Air Flow. Polywood’s thermal protection blocks up to 30 degrees of airflow that comes through a window. Maximizes R-Value. Polywood has an R-Value of over 6 in a double-pane window. That’s the highest thermal resistance rating of insulation material of any shutter in the industry. Reduces Heat Transfer. Polywood offers a 45.96% reduction in heat transfer. Boosts Energy Efficiency. Polywood is up to 70% more energy efficient than wood shutters and up to 1600% more energy efficient than aluminum blinds. Resists Moisture and Humidity. Since Polywood is moisture-proof, it resists humidity and moisture that can impact a room’s temperature. The Polywood Shutter Insulating System incorporates all of these energy-efficient features to save you actual dollars on your energy bills. No other shutter looks as beautiful, is as durable, or saves you as much money as our Polywood shutters. Learn more about Polywood shutters.
