Windows are one of the biggest sources of heat gain and loss for your home. The right window treatment can result in energy and money savings for you.
We offer top-tier energy saving window treatments
in San Antonio. Our Polywood® Shutter Insulating System has exceptional thermal resistance, the best reduction of heat transfer, and offers the highest energy efficiency of all the window treatments on the market. And, when paired with Solar Gard window film, Polywood shutters
are the ideal choice for maximum savings on your energy statements.
The Polywood Shutter Insulation System
The most energy-efficient window treatment is shutters. And our Polywood shutters
, with their progressive insulation system, are the best energy saving shutters
in San Antonio – if not the United States.
We carefully craft every part of our Polywood Shutters with energy efficiency in mind so you can reap the energy savings. The exclusive solid polymer material Polywood is made from is thick enough to block air flow. This transforms these shutters into 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 dramatically reduces heat transfer at the edge of the panels in both the summer heat and winter cold in San Antonio. Add to that a heat-reflective paint, and the result is a shutter that is not only stunning but also extremely 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:
Stops Air Flow. Polywood’s thermal protection blocks up to 30 degrees of airflow that passes 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 leads to a 45.96% reduction in heat transfer.
Improves 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 impact a room’s temperature.
