Windows are one of the biggest sources of energy loss for your home. Using the right window treatment can result in energy and money savings for you.
We provide the highest quality energy saving window treatments
in Honolulu. Our Polywood® Shutter Insulating System offers the best reduction of heat transfer, excellent thermal resistance, and has the highest energy efficiency of all the window treatments in the industry. And, when paired with Solar Gard window film, Polywood shutters
are the ideal choice for the highest savings on your energy statements.
The Polywood Shutter Insulation System
Shutters are the top energy-efficient window treatment. And our Polywood shutters
, with their progressive insulation system, are the best energy saving shutters
in Honolulu – if not the US.
We take care to make every part of our Polywood Shutters, keeping energy efficiency in mind to give you the most energy savings. The specialty solid polymer material Polywood is composed from is thick enough to block air flow. This makes these shutters into a natural insulator. Polywood shutters block more light and temperature than any other shutter because of their patented weather stripping on the sides of each panel. This greatly limits heat transfer at the edge of the panels in both the heat of summer and the cold of winter in Honolulu. Top that off with a heat-reflective paint, and you have a shutter that is not only stunning but also remarkably energy efficient. In fact, Polywood shutters insulate up to 70% better than a similar wood shutter.
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 hard.
Here’s how Polywood gives you more energy savings than any other shutter:
Shields Against Air Flow. Polywood’s thermal protection blocks up to 30 degrees of airflow that goes through a window.
Maximizes R-Value. Polywood has an R-Value of over 6 in a double-pane window. That’s the highest thermal resistance rating of insulation material of any shutter in the industry.
Reduces Heat Transfer. Polywood results in a 45.96% reduction in heat transfer.
Increases 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.
