And, when coupled with Solar Gard window film, Polywood shutters are the best choice for the highest savings on your energy statements. The Polywood Shutter Insulation System Shutters are the top energy-efficient window treatment. And our Polywood shutters, with their progressive insulation system, are the best energy saving shutters in Fort Lauderdale – if not the US. We construct each component of our Polywood Shutters, keeping energy efficiency in mind to give you the most energy savings. The unique 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 light and temperature than any other shutter by sealing the weather-stripping pieces on the sides of the shutter. This dramatically limits heat transfer at the edge of the panels in both the cold of winter and the heat of summer in Fort Lauderdale. Add to that a heat-reflective paint, and you get 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 a comparable 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 hard. Here’s how Polywood provides you with more energy savings than any other shutter: Shields Against Air Flow. Polywood’s thermal protection blocks up to 30 degrees of airflow that passes 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 in the industry. 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 humidity and moisture that can affect a room’s temperature. The Polywood Shutter Insulating System incorporates all of these energy-efficient features to save you money on your energy statements. No other shutter looks as exquisite, lasts as long, or saves you as much money as our Polywood shutters. Learn more about Polywood shutters.
