And, when combined with Solar Gard window film, Polywood shutters are the prime choice for the most savings on your energy payments. The Polywood Shutter Insulation System Shutters are the top energy-efficient window treatment. And our Polywood shutters, with their exceptional insulation system, are the best energy saving shutters in Boston – if not America. We carefully construct each component of our Polywood Shutters, keeping energy efficiency in mind so you can reap the energy savings. The exclusive solid polymer material Polywood is manufactured from is dense enough to block air flow. This makes these shutters into a natural insulator. The sides of the shutters have weather-stripping pieces that seal to block more temperature and light than any other shutter. This dramatically reduces heat transfer at the edge of the panels in both the hot summer and the cold winter in Boston. Top that off with a heat-reflective paint, and you get a shutter that is not only beautiful but also exceptionally energy efficient. In 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 intensely. Here’s how Polywood gives you more energy savings than any other shutter: Shields Against Air Flow. Polywood’s thermal protection blocks as much as 30 degrees of airflow that goes through a window. Maximizes R-Value. Polywood has an R-Value of 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. 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 influence a room’s temperature. The Polywood Shutter Insulating System integrates all of these energy-efficient qualities to save you money on your energy bills. You won’t find another shutter that looks as exquisite, is as durable, or saves you as much on your energy bills as our Polywood shutters. Learn more about Polywood shutters.
