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 Tampa – if not the United States. We make every part of our Polywood Shutters, keeping energy efficiency in mind to give you the most energy savings. The specialty solid polymer material Polywood is manufactured from is thick enough to block air flow. This makes these shutters into 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 effectively limits heat transfer at the edge of the panels in both the summer heat and winter cold in Tampa. 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 a similar 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 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 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 moisture and humidity that can impact the temperature of a room. The Polywood Shutter Insulating System integrates all of these energy-efficient features to save you money on your energy bills. You won’t find another shutter that looks as beautiful, is as durable, or saves you as much on your energy bills as our Polywood shutters. Learn more about Polywood shutters.
