When The Dallas Weather Cools - And How To Insulate Your Windows Against It11/18/2015Collins Jones During these winter months, the weather cools down in Dallas. And when you see how that affects your energy bill, it’s time to find ways to cut it down. 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 hardware 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 more and more homeowners find shrinkable window film a hassle when there’s multiple windows to weatherproof. And when you insulate a window with shrink film, it means you can’t open it until the weather warms up. If these things concern you, insulating window treatments, including Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a a more favorable choice. Polywood Shutters Constructed from synthetic wood, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment money can buy 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 shutter frame, the louver material, and the weather stripping make Polywood shutters the preferred solution for insulating your windows. Solar Gard Window Film Apply Solar Gard window film to glass windows through every season. It doesn’t change your window’s appearance, unlike insulating kits. And the best part of Solar Gard is that you can open the window at any time since the film doesn’t cover the edges. Solar Gard is especially convenient during Dallas winters because it reduces heat transfer through the glass. This way, the cold air stays out and the warmer temperature of the room remains in the room.
