We all know that windows are one of the biggest reasons for heat gain and loss in your home. Using the right window treatment can result in energy and money savings for you.
We carry the best energy saving window treatments
in Austin. Our Polywood® Shutter Insulating System offers the best reduction of heat transfer, superior thermal resistance, and has the highest energy efficiency of all the window treatments in the industry. And, when combined with Solar Gard window film, Polywood shutters
are your prime 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 exceptional insulation system, are the best energy saving shutters
in Austin – if not the US.
We construct each part of our Polywood Shutters with energy efficiency in mind to give you the most energy savings. The exclusive solid polymer material Polywood is manufactured from is thick enough to block air flow. This results in shutters that are 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 panel. This greatly limits heat transfer at the edge of the panels in both the cold of winter and the heat of summer in Austin. Add to that a heat-reflective paint, and you get a shutter that is not only beautiful 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 intensely.
Here’s how Polywood provides you with more energy savings than any other shutter:
Stops Air Flow. Polywood’s thermal protection blocks up to 30 degrees of airflow that goes through a window.
Maximizes R-Value. Polywood’s R-Value is 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 results in 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 humidity and moisture that can affect the temperature of a room.
