When The St. George Weather Cools Down - And The Ways You Can Insulate Your Windows Against It11/18/2015Kasey Udy This time of year, the weather sees a drop in temperatures in St. George. And when you get the first utility statement of the season, you’ll want some tips on how to lessen it. Insulating your windows contributes to your energy savings throughout the colder winter months. Explore these three ways to insulate your windows in preparation for the colder weather in St. George, UT. Traditional Sealing Kits Weatherproofing kits are available in hardware stores in the St. George area. These sealing kits include a guide on where to stick the tape, the amount of film to cut, and the best way to shrink the film. This decreases heat loss from drafts. Yet some homeowners look for alternatives to weatherproofing kits when there’s a number of windows to cover. And insulating a window with shrink film means the window is closed until spring. If these are concerns for you, insulating window treatments, including Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a better solution. Polywood Shutters Crafted from premium polymer material, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment money can buy in the St. George area. They block the effects of the weather 70% better than a similar wood shutter, and 1600% better than an aluminum blind. Polywood decreases airflow by up to 45% and deflects temperature by 30°. The weather stripping, the shutter frame, and the louver material combine to make Polywood shutters the preferred solution for insulating your house. Solar Gard Window Film You can apply the premium window film, Solar Gard, to glass windows through every season. It does not affect your window’s appearance like an insulating kit does. And a fantastic feature of Solar Gard is the option to open the window whenever you wish because the film is limited to the glass area, and not the frame. Solar Gard is especially helpful during St. George’s colder months because it reduces heat transfer through the glass. This way, the cooler air stays out and the warmth of the room stays...well...in the room. How To Get Insulating Shutters For Your Windows In St. George, UT Easy!
