When The San Antonio Weather Cools - And The Steps You Can Take To Insulate Your Windows Against It

November 18, 2015

During these winter months, the weather sees a drop in temperatures in San Antonio. And when the first energy bill of the season arrives, you’ll want some tips on how to decrease it. Insulating your windows goes a long way toward saving energy during the cooler temperatures of winter.

Learn about these three ways you can insulate your windows against the cooling temperatures in San Antonio, TX.

Traditional Sealing Kits

It’s common to see weatherproofing kits in home improvement stores in the San Antonio area. They contain step-by-step information on where to stick the tape, the amount of film to cut, and the best way to shrink the film. This decreases heat loss from drafts.

Yet more and more homeowners find shrinkable window film a hassle when they have a number of windows to insulate. And insulating a window with shrink film means you can’t open it until spring. If these are challenges for you, insulating window treatments, like Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a preferred option.

Polywood Shutters

Crafted from a wood polymer, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment available in the San Antonio area. They insulate 70% better than a similar wood shutter, and 1600% better than an aluminum blind. Polywood blocks airflow by up to 45% and deflects temperature by 30°.

The weather stripping, the shutter frame, and the louver material make Polywood shutters the best solution for insulating your home.

Solar Gard Window Film

You can apply the premium window film, Solar Gard, to the window pane twelve months a year. It doesn’t change your window’s look like an insulating kit does. And the best part of Solar Gard is the option to open the window at any time since the film doesn’t cover the edges.

Solar Gard is especially beneficial during San Antonio’s colder months because it decreases heat transfer through the window’s glass. Now the cool air stays out and the warmer temperature of the room remains in the room.
