When The New Brunswick Weather Cools - And The Steps You Can Take To Insulate Your Windows Against It11/18/2015Holly Perron Every year around this time, the weather gets colder in New Brunswick. And when you get the first utility statement of the season, it’s time to find ways to cut it down. Insulating your windows is a great way to save energy throughout the colder winter months. Learn about these three ways for insulating your windows against the cooling temperatures in New Brunswick, NJ. Traditional Sealing Kits Weatherproofing kits are a familiar sight in hardware stores in the New Brunswick area. Store-bought sealing kits contain a guide on where to stick the tape, the amount of film to cut, and the best way to shrink the film. This cuts down on heat loss from drafts. But more and more homeowners find shrinkable window film a hassle when there’s a number of windows to insulate. And when you apply shrink film to a window, this seals off any access to the window until the spring season. If these things concern you, insulating window treatments, including Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a a more favorable choice. Polywood Shutters Made from premium polymer material, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment money can buy in the New Brunswick area. They insulate 70% better than the equivalent wood shutter, and 1600% better than an aluminum blind. Polywood decreases airflow by up to 45% and deflects temperature by 30°. The shutter frame, the louver material, and the weather stripping are what makes Polywood shutters the best option for insulating your windows. Solar Gard Window Film Solar Gard is a premium window film you can apply to the window pane year round. It does not affect your window’s appearance, unlike insulating kits. And the best part of Solar Gard is the ability to open the window whenever you wish. That’s because the film doesn’t stretch over the window frame. Solar Gard is very convenient during New Brunswick winters because it blocks heat transfer through the window’s glass. This way, the cool air remains out and the heat of the room remains in the room.
