Windows are one of the biggest causes of heat gain and loss in your home. Using the right window treatment can save you energy and money.
We offer top-tier energy saving window treatments
in Minneapolis. Our Polywood® Shutter Insulating System offers the best reduction of heat transfer, superior thermal resistance, and has the most energy efficiency of all the window treatments on the market. And, when paired with Solar Gard window film, Polywood shutters
are the best choice for the most savings on your energy bills.
The Polywood Shutter Insulation System
Shutters are the top energy-efficient window treatment. And our Polywood shutters
, with their advanced insulation system, are the best energy saving shutters
in Minneapolis – if not the United States.
We make every part of our Polywood Shutters with energy efficiency in mind to give you the most energy savings. The unique solid polymer material Polywood is composed from can block airflow because of its thickness. 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 panel. This effectively reduces heat transfer at the edge of the panels in both the heat of summer and the cold of winter in Minneapolis. Top that off with a heat-reflective paint, and you have a shutter that is not only beautiful 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 long.
Here’s how Polywood provides you with more energy savings than any other shutter:
Blocks Air Flow. Polywood’s thermal protection blocks up to 30 degrees of airflow that comes 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 on the market.
Reduces Heat Transfer. Polywood offers 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 humidity and moisture that can affect the temperature of a room.
