Everyone knows that windows are one of the biggest sources of energy loss in your home. The right window treatment can result in energy and money savings for you.
We carry the best energy saving window treatments
in Raleigh. Our Polywood® Shutter Insulating System has exceptional thermal resistance, the best reduction of heat transfer, and offers the most energy efficiency of all the window treatments on the market. And, when coupled with Solar Gard window film, Polywood shutters
are the best choice for the highest 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 Raleigh – if not America.
We take care to construct each part of our Polywood Shutters with energy efficiency in mind to give you the most energy savings. The specialty solid polymer material Polywood is composed from is dense enough to block air flow. This results in shutters that are a natural insulator. Polywood shutters block more light and temperature than any other shutter because of their patented weather stripping on the sides of each shutter panel. This effectively limits heat transfer at the edge of the panels in both the hot summer and the cold winter in Raleigh. Top that off with a heat-reflective paint, and the result is a shutter that is not only beautiful but also exceptionally energy efficient. As a matter of fact, Polywood shutters insulate up to 70% better than an equivalent 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 up to 30 degrees of airflow that comes 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 on the market.
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 moisture and humidity that can affect a room’s temperature.
