Polywood Shutters Solve All Window Facing Issues in Dallas07/26/2019Collins Jones Each window in your home has a directional facing, and you will want a covering that can tackle both sun glare and heat loss. Some time during the day, your windows will face direct sunlight which will make the space feel hot. Alternately, a window may have difficulty with overpowering sun glare. With different facings having unique complications, is there a single covering in Dallas that works for every window? Polywood® Shutters Work Better Than The Others On Windows Facing East Or West When your windows face east or west, you are going to get problems during daybreak and sundown. However, by using Polywood plantation shutters, you can tilt the louvers and block the direct light so the sun glare won’t hit you straight in the eye. When the harsh rays from the sunrise are tempered, your mornings will become much more pleasant. No wonder plantation shutter are a perfect window treatment for bedrooms with east-facing windows. Your Polywood plantation shutters can also block the setting sun on west facing windows. Because the afternoon can be warmer than the morning, you may also have the other trouble of the late day sun heating up your space. You could only see a few hours of intense UV rays, but the temperature change may be enough to make your rooms seem hot and stuffy unless you have a window treatment that also is energy efficient. Polywood® Shutters Work Better Than The Others On Windows That Are Situated North Or South: In Dallas, north-facing windows get less direct sunlight than any other direction. Therefore, you shouldn’t have any issues with sun glare or collecting heat. Instead, the main problem is heat loss. Southern windows have the opposite problem, and direct sunlight can flow in from sunup to sundown. Constant sun can excessively heat up your home and could make your windows seem like an oven. For heat problems, you will want to use a window covering that is energy efficient. Polywood plantation shutters hinder air flow because they use solid faux wood louvers and weather stripping, which makes them the most energy-efficient window covering on the market. Compare to other treatments, our Polywood shutters employ an energy efficient insulation system that is 70% more efficient than hardwood shutters and 1600% more efficient than aluminum blinds. Do Other Window Coverings Perform As Well As Polywood Shutters? If you have a room with windows that only face one direction, you have many choices. A sheer cellular or roman shade could work wonders for windows that are set east or west. Sheer shades will block the glare but will still give a hint of light that perks up the room. But with north- or south-facing windows, you should prioritize energy efficiency over dealing with glare. If your windows are in a shady spot, you could go with a real wood plantation shutter, like our Ovation® shutters, or perhaps a product like our reclaimed wood shutters. Spaces that have windows on a corner wall or two may need a more versatile covering that can direct light and is energy efficient. This is where our Polywood plantation shutters are ideal because they exceed in so many areas. During sunrise and sunset, you can adjust the louvers so natural light still peeks through, but the blinding rays can’t fully heat up the room. And while plantation shutters will mitigate facing problems, they also blend in with most decor styles.
