When The Nashville Weather Gets Colder - And How To Insulate Your Windows Against It11/18/2015Stefano Diotaiuti This time of year, the weather sees a drop in temperatures in Nashville. And when you see how that affects your energy bill, you’ll want some tips on how to decrease it. Insulating your windows goes a long way toward saving energy throughout the cooler temperatures of winter. Here are three ways for insulating your windows against the cooling temperatures in Nashville, TN. Traditional Sealing Kits Weatherproofing kits are a familiar sight in home improvement stores in the Nashville area. Store-bought 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 decreases heat loss and drafts. But more and more homeowners look for alternatives to weatherproofing kits when they have a number of windows to weatherproof. And when you apply shrink film to a window, this means the window is closed until spring. If these are challenges for you, insulating window treatments, such as Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a better option. Polywood Shutters Constructed from premium polymer material, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment money can buy in the Nashville area. They block the effects of the weather 70% better than a similar wood shutter, and 1600% better than an aluminum blind. Polywood blocks airflow by up to 45% and deflects temperature by 30°. The louver material, the shutter frame, and the weather stripping combine to make Polywood shutters the top option for insulating your home. Solar Gard Window Film Solar Gard is a premium window film you can apply to glass windows through every season. It doesn’t change your window’s appearance, which is not the case with insulating kits. And the best part of Solar Gard is the ability to open the window whenever you wish because the film is limited to the glass area, and not the frame. Solar Gard is especially helpful during Nashville winters because it decreases heat transfer through the window’s glass. Now the cold air doesn’t enter and the heat of the room remains in the room.
