The interior Polywood shutters available from Sunburst Shutters are 70 percent more energy-efficient than regular wood shutters and 1600 percent more efficient than aluminum blinds.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) September 26, 2011
As homeowners prepare for upcoming cold weather, many are looking for ways to save money on their power bills. Sunburst Shutters & Window Fashions, a leader retailer of window treatments, announces how the company’s energy-efficient Polywood shutters are helping them do just that.
Polywood is a unique material proprietary to Sunburst Shutters that has proven to insulate better than any other shutter material. This is because the shutter’s inner core is made from materials that act as insulators, and the shutters have built-in weather stripping and baked-on paint that minimizes temperature pass-through. In fact, the interior Polywood shutters available from Sunburst Shutters are 70 percent more energy-efficient than regular wood shutters and 1600 percent more efficient than aluminum blinds. This adds up to a massive savings—between 20 and 30 percent on energy costs.
“One of our customers in Massachusetts actually tracked his home’s energy bills month to month and saw a reduction of 20 percent after installing our Polywood shutters,” said Dix Jarman, CEO of Sunburst Shutters. “In a state like that where winter temperatures regularly drop below freezing, that’s huge.”
According to the National Association of Home Builders, windows can account for a 25 to 50 percent loss of heating energy. When taken together with the rising cost of energy in most states, means that some homeowners are quite literally throwing hundreds of dollars out the window.
“It’s a problem that we see again and again,” said Jarman. “People just don’t know how much money they could be saving if they used Polywood shutters for all their window treatments.”
In addition to the insulation they provide in the winter, these Polywood shutters are both heat and UV-resistant, making them extremely useful in the summertime as well. In contrast to traditional shutters that fade and warp over time, Polywood shutters resist these problems and are made to last.
