Save Energy and Money with Energy Efficient Window Treatments In Detroit, MI!

Windows are one of the biggest reasons for heat gain and loss for your home. The right window treatment can result in energy and money savings for you.

We carry top-tier energy saving window treatments in Detroit. Our Polywood® Shutter Insulating System offers the best reduction of heat transfer, excellent thermal resistance, and has the most energy efficiency of all the window treatments on the market. And, when paired with Solar Gard window film, Polywood shutters are your prime choice for maximum savings on your energy statements.

The Polywood Shutter Insulation System 

The most energy-efficient window treatment is shutters. And our Polywood shutters, with their exceptional insulation system, are the best energy saving shutters in Detroit – if not America.
We take care to make each component of our Polywood Shutters with energy efficiency in mind to give you the most energy savings. The specialty solid polymer material Polywood is manufactured from is dense enough to block air flow. This makes these shutters into a natural insulator. Polywood shutters block more light and temperature than any other shutter because of their patented weather stripping on the sides of each panel. This effectively limits heat transfer at the edge of the panels in both the hot summer and the cold winter in Detroit. Add to that a heat-reflective paint, and you get a shutter that is not only beautiful but also remarkably energy efficient. As a matter of fact, Polywood shutters insulate up to 70% better than an equivalent wood shutter.
Shutter Energy Efficiency
A third party thermal test (forward looking infrared) showed that the Polywood Shutter Insulating System blocked as much as 30 degrees of temperature coming through the window. This means the HVAC system doesn’t have to work as intensely.
Here’s how Polywood gives you more energy savings than any other shutter:
  • Shields Against Air Flow. Polywood’s thermal protection blocks as much as 30 degrees of airflow that comes through a window.

  • Maximizes R-Value. Polywood’s R-Value is over 6 in a double-pane window. That’s the highest thermal resistance rating of insulation material of any shutter on the market.

  • Reduces Heat Transfer. Polywood results in a 45.96% reduction in heat transfer.

  • Boosts Energy Efficiency. Polywood is up to 70% more energy efficient than wood shutters and up to 1600% more energy efficient than aluminum blinds.

  • Resists Moisture and Humidity. Since Polywood is moisture-proof, it resists moisture and humidity that can influence the temperature of a room.
