We all know that windows are one of the biggest reasons for energy loss for your home. Choosing the right window treatment can save you energy and money.
We carry the best energy saving window treatments
in Southern California. Our Polywood® Shutter Insulating System has exceptional thermal resistance, the best reduction of heat transfer, and offers the highest energy efficiency of all the window treatments in the industry. And, when coupled with Solar Gard window film, Polywood shutters
are your prime choice for the most savings on your energy statements.
The Polywood Shutter Insulation System
The most energy-efficient window treatment is shutters. And our Polywood shutters
, with their advanced insulation system, are the best energy saving shutters
in Southern California – if not the United States.
We carefully construct every component of our Polywood Shutters, keeping energy efficiency in mind so you can reap the energy savings. The specialty solid polymer material Polywood is manufactured from can block airflow because of its density. This makes these shutters into a natural insulator. Polywood shutters block more temperature and light than any other shutter because of their patented weather stripping on the sides of each shutter panel. This effectively reduces heat transfer around the panels in both the cold of winter and the heat of summer in Southern California. Add to that a heat-reflective paint, and the result is a shutter that is not only stunning but also extremely energy efficient. As a matter of fact, Polywood shutters insulate up to 70% better than a similar 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 long.
Here’s how Polywood gives you more energy savings than any other shutter:
Shields Against Air Flow. Polywood’s thermal protection blocks as much as 30 degrees of airflow that goes 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 you can find.
Reduces Heat Transfer. Polywood leads to 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 the temperature of a room.
