When The Dallas Weather Cools - And How To Insulate Your Windows Against It

November 18, 2015

During these winter months, the weather sees a drop in temperatures in Dallas. And when you see how that affects your energy bill, you’ll be looking for ways to decrease it. Insulating your windows contributes to your energy savings during the this season’s colder climate.

Explore these three ways for insulating your windows for the upcoming drop in temperature in Dallas, TX.

Traditional Sealing Kits

Weatherproofing kits are available in grocery stores in the Dallas area. These sealing kits contain step-by-step information on how much of the film to cut, where to stick the tape, and how to shrink the film with a hairdryer. This cuts down on heat loss from drafts.

Yet most homeowners find shrinkable window film a hassle when there’s multiple windows to weatherproof. And insulating a window with shrink film means the window is closed until the weather warms up. If these things concern you, insulating window treatments, including Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a preferred option.

Polywood Shutters

Polywood Shutters Completely Closed To Insulate The Windows For The Dallas Winter

Crafted from synthetic wood, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment you’ll find in the Dallas area. They block the effects of the weather 70% better than a comparable wood shutter, and 1600% better than an aluminum blind. Polywood blocks airflow by up to 45% and reduces the effects of temperature by 30°.

The louver material, the shutter frame, and the weather stripping are what makes Polywood shutters the preferred option for insulating your house.

Solar Gard Window Film

Apply Solar Gard window film to glass windows through every season. It has no impact on your window’s appearance, unlike insulating kits. And the best part of Solar Gard is that you can open the window any time you want since the film doesn’t cover the edges.

Solar Gard is especially beneficial during Dallas’s colder months because it blocks heat transfer through the glass. Now the cooler air stays out and the warmer temperature of the room remains in the room.
