We all know that windows are one of the biggest causes of energy loss for your home. Choosing the right window treatment can save you energy and money.
We carry top-tier energy saving window treatments
in Boston. Our Polywood® Shutter Insulating System has excellent thermal resistance, the best reduction of heat transfer, and offers the most energy efficiency of all the window treatments available. And, when paired 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 the United States.
We carefully craft each component of our Polywood Shutters, keeping energy efficiency in mind to give you the most energy savings. The exclusive solid polymer material Polywood is composed from can block airflow because of its density. This transforms these shutters into 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 dramatically reduces heat transfer at the edge of the panels in both the hot summer and the cold winter in Boston. Add to that a heat-reflective paint, and you get a shutter that is not only beautiful but also remarkably 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 long.
Here’s how Polywood brings you more energy savings than any other shutter:
Stops 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 results in 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.
