When The Orlando Weather Cools - And How To Insulate Your Windows Against It
This time of year, 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 is a great way to save energy in the cooler temperatures of winter.
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 hardware stores in the Orlando area. They 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 shy away from this method when they have multiple windows to weatherproof. And insulating a window with shrink film means the window is closed until the weather warms up. If these are challenges for you, insulating window treatments, like Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a better solution.
Made from premium polymer material, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment money can buy in the Orlando area. They block the effects of the weather 70% better than a similar wood shutter, and 1600% better than an aluminum blind. Polywood blocks airflow by up to 45% and deflects temperature by 30°.
The weather stripping, the shutter frame, and the louver material make Polywood shutters the preferred option for insulating your windows.
Solar Gard Window Film
Solar Gard is a premium window film you can apply to glass windows all year. It does not affect the look of your window, 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 blocks heat transfer through the window’s glass. This way, the cool air stays out and the heat of the room stays...well...in the room.
