When The Atlanta Weather Cools Down - And How To Insulate Your Windows Against It11/18/2015Dan Taylor Every year around this time, the weather gets colder in Atlanta. And when you see how that affects your energy bill, you’ll want some tips on how to cut it down. Insulating your windows goes a long way toward saving energy in the cooler temperatures of winter. Here are three ways you can insulate your windows in preparation for the colder weather in Atlanta, GA. Traditional Sealing Kits Weatherproofing kits are a familiar sight in hardware stores in the Atlanta area. Store-bought sealing kits contain a guide on where to place the tape, the length of film to cut, and how to shrink the film with a blowdryer. This reduces heat loss and drafts. Yet more and more homeowners find shrinkable window film a hassle when there’s multiple windows to insulate. And insulating a window with shrink film means the window is closed until the weather warms up. If these things concern you, insulating window treatments, such as Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a better choice. Polywood Shutters Constructed from synthetic wood, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment you’ll find in the Atlanta area. They insulate 70% better than a similar wood shutter, and 1600% better than an aluminum blind. Polywood reduces airflow by up to 45% and reduces the effects of temperature by 30°. The weather stripping, the shutter frame, and the louver material make Polywood shutters the top option for insulating your windows. Solar Gard Window Film Solar Gard is a premium window film you can apply to the window pane through every season. It does not affect your window’s appearance, unlike insulating kits. And the best part of Solar Gard is that you can open the window any time you want. That’s because the film doesn’t stretch over the window frame. Solar Gard is especially convenient during Atlanta’s cooler seasons because it reduces heat transfer through the window’s glass. Now the cooler air remains out and the warmth of the room remains in the room. How To Order Insulating Shutters For Your Windows In Atlanta, GA Easy!
