When The Orlando Weather Cools - And How To Insulate Your Windows Against It11/18/2015Todd Hansen Every year around this time, the weather cools in Orlando. And when you get the first utility statement of the season, you’ll be looking for ways to decrease it. Insulating your windows goes a long way toward saving energy in the colder winter months. Explore these three ways you can insulate your windows for the upcoming drop in temperature in Orlando, FL. Traditional Sealing Kits Weatherproofing kits are available in grocery stores in the Orlando area. These sealing kits contain instructions 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 from drafts. Yet more and more homeowners find shrinkable window film a hassle when they have multiple windows to weatherproof. And when you insulate a window with shrink film, it means the window is closed until spring. If these are challenges for you, insulating window treatments, such as Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a better solution. Polywood Shutters Constructed from premium polymer material, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment money can buy in the Orlando area. They insulate 70% better than a comparable wood shutter, and 1600% better than an aluminum blind. Polywood decreases airflow by up to 45% and blocks temperature by 30°. The weather stripping, the shutter frame, and the louver material are what makes Polywood shutters the preferred solution for insulating your windows. Solar Gard Window Film Solar Gard is a premium window film you can apply to the window pane all year. It has no impact on your window’s look, which is not the case with 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 very convenient during Orlando winters because it reduces heat transfer through the window’s glass. Now the cool air remains out and the warmth of the room stays...well...in the room.
