When The New York City Weather Cools - And How To Insulate Your Windows Against It

November 18, 2015

Every year around this time, the weather cools in New York City. And when the first energy bill of the season arrives, you’ll be looking for ways to reduce it. Insulating your windows goes a long way toward saving energy in the cooler temperatures of winter.

Here are three ways to insulate your windows against the cooling temperatures in New York City, NY.

Traditional Sealing Kits

Weatherproofing kits are a familiar sight in hardware stores in the New York City area. They come with instructions on where to stick the tape, the amount of film to cut, and the best way to shrink the film. This decreases drafts and heat loss.

Yet most homeowners find shrinkable window film a hassle when there’s multiple windows to cover. And insulating a window with shrink film means you can’t open it until the spring season. If these are concerns for you, insulating window treatments, including Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a a more favorable solution.

Polywood Shutters

Constructed from a wood polymer, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment money can buy in the New York City area. They insulate 70% better than a comparable wood shutter, and 1600% better than an aluminum blind. Polywood reduces airflow by up to 45% and reduces the effects of temperature by 30°.

The shutter frame, the louver material, and the weather stripping combine to make Polywood shutters the top option for insulating your home.

Solar Gard Window Film

Apply Solar Gard window film to your windows twelve months a year. It does not affect your window’s appearance like an insulating kit does. And the thing people love about Solar Gard is the ability to open the window any time you want since the film doesn’t cover the edges.

Solar Gard is especially helpful during New York City’s colder months because it decreases heat transfer through the glass. Now the cooler air stays out and the warmer temperature of the room doesn’t leave.
