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 Houston – if not America. We carefully craft 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 results in shutters that are a natural insulator. You can block more light and temperature than any other shutter by sealing shut the weather-stripping pieces on the sides of the shutter. This dramatically reduces heat transfer at the edge of the panels in both the hot summer and the cold winter in Houston. Top that off with a heat-reflective paint, and you have a shutter that is not only stunning 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 long. Here’s how Polywood gives you more energy savings than any other shutter: Blocks 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 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. The Polywood Shutter Insulating System incorporates all of these energy-efficient features to save you money on your energy bills. No other shutter looks as elegant, is as durable, or saves you as much on your energy bills as our Polywood shutters. Learn more about Polywood shutters.
