Windows are one of the biggest sources of energy loss for your home. Using the right window treatment can result in energy and money savings for you.
We carry top-tier energy saving window treatments
in New Brunswick. Our Polywood® Shutter Insulating System offers the best reduction of heat transfer, superior thermal resistance, and has the most energy efficiency of all the window treatments on the market. And, when combined with Solar Gard window film, Polywood shutters
are your prime choice for the most savings on your energy payments.
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 New Brunswick – if not the US.
We carefully craft each part of our Polywood Shutters with energy efficiency in mind so you can enjoy the energy savings. The specialty solid polymer material Polywood is manufactured from can block airflow because of its thickness. This results in shutters that are 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 around the panels in both the heat of summer and the cold of winter in New Brunswick. Add to that a heat-reflective paint, and the result is a shutter that is not only beautiful but also extremely energy efficient. As a matter of 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 long.
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 passes through a window.
Maximizes R-Value. Polywood’s R-Value is 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 leads to 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 influence a room’s temperature.
