Save Energy and Money with Energy Efficient Window Treatments In Seattle, Washington!

Everyone knows that windows are one of the biggest causes of heat gain and loss for your home. The right window treatment can save you energy and money.

We offer top-tier energy saving window treatments in Seattle. Our Polywood® Shutter Insulating System has excellent thermal resistance, the best reduction of heat transfer, and offers the highest energy efficiency of all the window treatments on the market. And, when paired with Solar Gard window film, Polywood shutters are the best choice for the highest savings on your energy payments.

The Polywood Shutter Insulation System 

The most energy-efficient window treatment is shutters. And our Polywood shutters, with their advanced insulation system, are the best energy saving shutters in Seattle – if not the United States.
We carefully make each part of our Polywood Shutters, keeping energy efficiency in mind to give you the most energy savings. The unique solid polymer material Polywood is composed from can block airflow because of its thickness. 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 greatly limits heat transfer at the edge of the panels in both the summer heat and winter cold in Seattle. Add to that a heat-reflective paint, and you get a shutter that is not only beautiful but also exceptionally energy efficient. As a matter of fact, Polywood shutters insulate up to 70% better than a similar wood shutter.
Shutter Energy Efficiency
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 intensely.
Here’s how Polywood provides you with more energy savings than any other shutter:
  • Shields Against Air Flow. Polywood’s thermal protection blocks as much as 30 degrees of airflow that goes through a window.

  • Maximizes R-Value. Polywood’s R-Value is 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 results in 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 moisture and humidity that can influence a room’s temperature.
