The Polywood Shutter Insulation System The most energy-efficient window treatment is shutters. And our Polywood shutters, with their advanced insulation system, are the best energy saving shutters in Gainesville – if not America. We craft every part of our Polywood Shutters, keeping energy efficiency in mind to give you the most energy savings. The exclusive solid polymer material Polywood is manufactured from is thick enough to block air flow. This results in shutters that are a natural insulator. You can block more temperature and light than any other shutter by sealing shut the weather-stripping pieces on the sides of the shutter. This effectively limits heat transfer around the panels in both the heat of summer and the cold of winter in Gainesville. 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 brings you more energy savings than any other shutter: Blocks Air Flow. Polywood’s thermal protection blocks up to 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 you can find. 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 moisture and humidity that can impact the temperature of a room. The Polywood Shutter Insulating System combines all of these energy-efficient features to save you actual dollars on your energy statements. 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.
