When The Denver Weather Cools Down - And The Steps You Can Take To Insulate Your Windows Against It11/18/2015Gary Harding This time of year, the weather sees a drop in temperatures in Denver. And when the first energy bill of the season arrives, you’ll be looking for ways to cut it down. Insulating your windows contributes to your energy savings in the this season’s colder climate. Discover these three ways to insulate your windows in preparation for the colder weather in Denver, Colorado. Traditional Sealing Kits It’s common to see weatherproofing kits in home improvement stores in the Denver area. Store-bought sealing kits come with instructions on how much of the film to cut, where to stick the tape, and how to shrink the film with a hairdryer. This decreases drafts and heat loss. However some homeowners look for alternatives to weatherproofing kits if there are a number of windows to insulate. And insulating a window with shrink film seals off any access to the window until the weather warms up. If these things concern you, insulating window treatments, like Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a better choice. Polywood Shutters Constructed from premium polymer material, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment available in the Denver 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 deflects temperature by 30°. The weather stripping, the shutter frame, and the louver material make Polywood shutters the best choice for insulating your house. Solar Gard Window Film Solar Gard is a premium window film you can apply to your windows all year. It doesn’t change your window’s appearance like an insulating kit does. And the best part of Solar Gard is the option to open the window whenever you wish since the film doesn’t cover the edges. Solar Gard is especially helpful during Denver’s cooler seasons because it decreases heat transfer through the glass. This means the cold air remains out and the warmer temperature of the room stays...well...in the room. How To Order Insulating Shutters For Your Windows In Denver, Colorado Easy!
