The Polywood Shutter Insulation System The most energy-efficient window treatment is shutters. And our Polywood shutters, with their progressive insulation system, are the best energy saving shutters in Boise – if not the United States. We craft each component 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 density. This makes 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 effectively reduces heat transfer at the edge of the panels in both the cold of winter and the heat of summer in Boise. We add in a heat-reflective paint, and you have a shutter that is not only stunning but also exceptionally energy efficient. In 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 long. Here’s how Polywood gives you more energy savings than any other shutter: Shields Against Air Flow. Polywood’s thermal protection blocks as much as 30 degrees of airflow that passes 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 in the industry. 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 the humid conditions that can influence a room’s temperature. The Polywood Shutter Insulating System combines all of these energy-efficient features to save you actual dollars on your heating and cooling bills. No other shutter looks as elegant, lasts as long, or saves you as much on your energy bills as our Polywood shutters. Learn more about Polywood shutters.
