When The San Antonio Weather Cools - And The Ways You Can Insulate Your Windows Against It11/18/2015Tyler Jorgensen During these winter months, the weather cools down in San Antonio. And when you see how that affects your energy bill, you’ll want some tips on how to cut it down. Insulating your windows is a great way to save energy throughout the colder winter months. Learn about these three ways to 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. Store-bought sealing kits 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 cuts down on heat loss from drafts. Yet most homeowners find shrinkable window film a hassle when they have a number of windows to insulate. And when you insulate a window with shrink film, it means you can’t open it until the weather warms up. If these are challenges for you, insulating window treatments, such as Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a preferred choice. Polywood Shutters Crafted from a wood polymer, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment available in the San Antonio area. They block the effects of the weather 70% better than a comparable wood shutter, and 1600% better than an aluminum blind. Polywood blocks airflow by up to 45% and blocks temperature by 30°. The weather stripping, the shutter frame, and the louver material make Polywood shutters the best option 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 has no impact on your window’s look, unlike insulating kits. And a fantastic feature of Solar Gard is the ability to open the window at any time. That’s because the film doesn’t stretch over the window frame. Solar Gard is especially beneficial during San Antonio winters because it decreases heat transfer through the window. Now the cool air remains out and the warmer temperature of the room stays...well...in the room. How To Buy Insulating Shutters For Your Windows In San Antonio, TX Easy!
