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 Hartford – if not the United States. We make every component of our Polywood Shutters, keeping energy efficiency in mind to give you the most energy savings. The exclusive solid polymer material Polywood is made from can block airflow because of its density. This makes these shutters into a natural insulator. There are weather-stripping pieces on the sides of the shutters that seal to block more temperature and light than any other shutter. This dramatically limits heat transfer around the panels in both the hot summer and the cold winter in Hartford. Top that off with a heat-reflective paint, and the result is a shutter that is not only beautiful but also exceptionally 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: Shields Against Air Flow. Polywood’s thermal protection blocks as much as 30 degrees of airflow that comes 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 you can find. Reduces Heat Transfer. Polywood leads to a 45.96% reduction in heat transfer. Boosts 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 a room’s temperature. The Polywood Shutter Insulating System combines all of these energy-efficient benefits to save you actual dollars on your energy bills. No other shutter looks as beautiful, is as durable, or saves you as much on your energy bills as our Polywood shutters. Learn more about Polywood shutters.
