The Polywood Shutter Insulation System Shutters are the top energy-efficient window treatment. And our Polywood shutters, with their progressive insulation system, are the best energy saving shutters in New York City – if not the United States. We craft each part of our Polywood Shutters, keeping energy efficiency in mind so you can enjoy the energy savings. The exclusive solid polymer material Polywood is composed from can block airflow because of its density. This transforms these shutters into a natural insulator. There are weather-stripping pieces on the sides of the shutters that seal to block more temperature and light than any other shutter. This greatly reduces heat transfer at the edge of the panels in both the heat of summer and the cold of winter in New York City. We add in a heat-reflective paint, and the result is a shutter that is not only timeless but also extremely energy efficient. As a matter of fact, Polywood shutters insulate up to 70% better than a comparable 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 hard. Here’s how Polywood gives you more energy savings than any other shutter: Stops Air Flow. Polywood’s thermal protection blocks up to 30 degrees of airflow that comes 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 you can find. Reduces Heat Transfer. Polywood offers a 45.96% reduction in heat transfer. Boosts 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 the humid conditions that can affect the temperature of a room. The Polywood Shutter Insulating System combines all of these energy-efficient features to save you actual dollars on your energy bills. No other shutter looks as exquisite, is as durable, or saves you as much money as our Polywood shutters. Learn more about Polywood shutters.
