Windows are one of the biggest sources of energy loss in your home. The right window treatment can save you energy and money.
We carry the highest quality energy saving window treatments
in Boise. Our Polywood® Shutter Insulating System offers the best reduction of heat transfer, exceptional thermal resistance, and has the most energy efficiency of all the window treatments available. And, when paired with Solar Gard window film, Polywood shutters
are the best choice for maximum savings on your energy payments.
The Polywood Shutter Insulation System
Shutters are the most energy-efficient window treatment. And our Polywood shutters
, with their exceptional 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 to give you the most energy savings. The exclusive solid polymer material Polywood is manufactured from can block airflow because of its density. This transforms these shutters into a natural insulator. Polywood shutters block more temperature and light than any other shutter because of their patented weather stripping on the sides of each shutter panel. 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 similar 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 brings 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 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 the humid conditions that can influence a room’s temperature.
