Windows are one of the biggest sources of heat gain and loss for your home. Using the right window treatment can save you energy and money.
We provide the best energy saving window treatments
in Fort Myers. Our Polywood® Shutter Insulating System has exceptional thermal resistance, the best reduction of heat transfer, and offers the highest energy efficiency of all the window treatments in the industry. And, when combined with Solar Gard window film, Polywood shutters
are the ideal choice for the highest savings on your energy statements.
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 specialty solid polymer material Polywood is made from is thick enough to block air flow. This transforms these shutters into a natural insulator. Polywood shutters block more light and temperature than any other shutter because of their patented weather stripping on the sides of each shutter panel. 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. 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 hard.
Here’s how Polywood gives you more energy savings than any other shutter:
Stops 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 in the industry.
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.
