When The Honolulu Weather Cools - And The Steps You Can Take To Insulate Your Windows Against It

November 18, 2015

Every year around this time, the weather cools down in Honolulu. And when you see how that affects your energy bill, it’s time to find ways to reduce it. Insulating your windows goes a long way toward saving energy in the cooler temperatures of winter.

Explore these three ways for insulating your windows for the upcoming drop in temperature in Honolulu, HI.

Traditional Sealing Kits

Weatherproofing kits are a familiar sight in hardware stores in the Honolulu area. These sealing kits come with a guide on where to place the tape, the length of film to cut, and how to shrink the film with a blowdryer. This decreases drafts and heat loss.

Yet more and more homeowners shy away from this method when they have numerous windows to weatherproof. And when you apply shrink film to a window, this means the window is closed until the spring season. If these things concern you, insulating window treatments, like Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a a more favorable option.

Polywood Shutters

Polywood Shutters Completely Closed To Insulate The Windows For The Honolulu Winter

Made from synthetic wood, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment available in the Honolulu area. They shield against external conditions 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 shutter frame, the louver material, and the weather stripping combine to make Polywood shutters the best choice for insulating your house.

Solar Gard Window Film

Apply Solar Gard window film to the window pane through every season. It doesn’t change the look of your window, unlike insulating kits. And the best part of Solar Gard is the option to 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 Honolulu winters because it reduces heat transfer through the glass. Now the cooler air remains out and the heat of the room remains in the room.
