When The Miami Weather Gets Colder - And The Ways You Can Insulate Your Windows Against It

November 18, 2015

This time of year, the weather cools down in Miami. And when the first energy bill of the season arrives, it’s time to find ways to decrease it. Insulating your windows contributes to your energy savings during the cooler temperatures of winter.

Learn about these three ways you can insulate your windows for the upcoming drop in temperature in Miami, FL.

Traditional Sealing Kits

It’s common to see weatherproofing kits in grocery stores in the Miami area. Store-bought sealing kits contain a guide on where to stick the tape, the amount of film to cut, and the best way to shrink the film. This reduces drafts and heat loss.

But most homeowners look for alternatives to weatherproofing kits if there are numerous windows to cover. And when you insulate a window with shrink film, it seals off any access to the window until the weather warms up. If these things concern you, insulating window treatments, such as Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a better option.

Polywood Shutters

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

Made from premium polymer material, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment money can buy in the Miami area. They insulate 70% better than a comparable wood shutter, and 1600% better than an aluminum blind. Polywood reduces airflow by up to 45% and deflects temperature by 30°.

The louver material, the shutter frame, and the weather stripping make Polywood shutters the top solution for insulating your windows.

Solar Gard Window Film

Apply Solar Gard window film to the window pane year round. It has no impact on your window’s look, which is not the case with 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 very convenient during Miami’s colder months because it blocks heat transfer through the window. Now the cool air remains out and the heat of the room remains in the room.
