The Polywood Shutter Insulation System The most energy-efficient window treatment is shutters. And our Polywood shutters, with their exceptional insulation system, are the best energy saving shutters in Fort Myers – if not the US. We carefully construct each part of our Polywood Shutters, keeping energy efficiency in mind so you can reap the energy savings. The exclusive solid polymer material Polywood is made from is thick enough to block air flow. This transforms these shutters into a natural insulator. The sides of the shutters have weather-stripping pieces that seal to block more temperature and light than any other shutter. This dramatically reduces heat transfer at the edge of the panels in both the heat of summer and the cold of winter in Fort Myers. Add to that 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 hard. Here’s how Polywood gives you more energy savings than any other shutter: Shields Against Air Flow. Polywood’s thermal protection blocks as much as 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. 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 the humid conditions that can influence the temperature of a room. The Polywood Shutter Insulating System integrates all of these energy-efficient features to save you actual dollars on your heating and cooling bills. No other shutter looks as elegant, lasts as long, or saves you as much on your energy bills as our Polywood shutters. Learn more about Polywood shutters.
