When The Atlanta Weather Gets Colder - And How To Insulate Your Windows Against It

November 18, 2015

This time of year, the weather sees a drop in temperatures in Atlanta. And when the first energy bill of the season arrives, you’ll want some tips on how to decrease it. Insulating your windows goes a long way toward saving energy in the cooler temperatures of winter.

Learn about these three ways to 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 how much of the film to cut, where to stick the tape, and how to shrink the film with a hairdryer. This reduces drafts and heat loss.

Yet more and more homeowners find shrinkable window film a hassle when they have multiple windows to insulate. And when you insulate a window with shrink film, it means you can’t open it until the weather warms up. If these are concerns for you, insulating window treatments, such as Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a better option.

Polywood Shutters

Polywood Shutters Closed All The Way To Insulate The Windows For The Atlanta Winter

Crafted from synthetic wood, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment you’ll find in the Atlanta area. They block the effects of the weather 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 solution for insulating your windows.

Solar Gard Window Film

You can apply the premium window film, Solar Gard, to glass windows through every season. It has no impact on your window’s appearance like an insulating kit does. And a fantastic feature 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 beneficial during Atlanta’s cooler seasons because it reduces heat transfer through the window’s glass. This way, the cold air stays out and the warmth of the room remains in the room.
