When The Destin Weather Cools Down - And The Ways You Can Insulate Your Windows Against It

November 18, 2015

During these winter months, the weather gets colder in Destin. 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 during the colder winter months.

Explore these three ways for insulating your windows in preparation for the colder weather in Destin, Florida.

Traditional Sealing Kits

Weatherproofing kits are a familiar sight in hardware stores in the Destin area. These sealing kits come with step-by-step information on where to stick the tape, the amount of film to cut, and the best way to shrink the film. This decreases heat loss and drafts.

Yet more and more homeowners look for alternatives to weatherproofing kits if there are a number of windows to insulate. And when you insulate a window with shrink film, it seals off any access to the window until the spring season. If these are concerns for you, insulating window treatments, like Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a better choice.

Polywood Shutters

Polywood Shutters Closed Tightly To Insulate The Windows For The Destin Winter

Constructed from synthetic wood, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment you’ll find in the Destin 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 reduces the effects of temperature by 30°.

The louver material, the shutter frame, and the weather stripping combine to make Polywood shutters the best option for insulating your home.

Solar Gard Window Film

You can apply the premium window film, Solar Gard, to the window pane through every season. It does not affect your window’s appearance, unlike insulating kits. And the thing people love about Solar Gard is the ability to open the window any time you want because the film is limited to the glass area, and not the frame.

Solar Gard is particularly helpful during Destin winters because it decreases heat transfer through the window’s glass. Now the cool air doesn’t enter and the warmth of the room stays...well...in the room.
