When The New Brunswick Weather Cools - And The Steps You Can Take To Insulate Your Windows Against It

November 18, 2015

This time of year, the weather gets colder in New Brunswick. And when you get the first utility statement of the season, you’ll be looking for ways to decrease it. 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 grocery stores in the New Brunswick area. Store-bought sealing kits contain step-by-step information 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.

However 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 means you can’t open it 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

The shutter frame, the louver material, and the weather stripping make Polywood shutters the best solution 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 has no impact on your window’s appearance like an insulating kit does. And a fantastic feature 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 particularly beneficial during New Brunswick winters because it blocks heat transfer through the window. Now the cool air stays out and the heat of the room stays...well...in the room.
