Everyone knows that windows are one of the biggest causes of energy loss in your home. Using the right window treatment can save you energy and money.
We carry top-tier energy saving window treatments
in Philadelphia. Our Polywood® Shutter Insulating System has superior thermal resistance, the best reduction of heat transfer, and offers the most energy efficiency of all the window treatments available. And, when paired with Solar Gard window film, Polywood shutters
are the prime choice for the most savings on your energy bills.
The Polywood Shutter Insulation System
Shutters are the top energy-efficient window treatment. And our Polywood shutters
, with their advanced insulation system, are the best energy saving shutters
in Philadelphia – if not America.
We craft every part 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. There are weather-stripping pieces on the sides of the shutters that seal shut to block more light and temperature than any other shutter. This dramatically reduces heat transfer around the panels in both the cold of winter and the heat of summer in Philadelphia. Add to that a heat-reflective paint, and you have a shutter that is not only beautiful but also remarkably energy efficient. In 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 hard.
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 passes 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 leads to a 45.96% reduction in heat transfer.
Increases 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 the humid conditions that can affect a room’s temperature.
