When The Salt Lake City Weather Gets Colder - And The Ways You Can Insulate Your Windows Against It

November 18, 2015

During these winter months, the weather sees a drop in temperatures in Salt Lake City. And when you get the first utility statement of the season, it’s time to find ways to scale it down. Insulating your windows contributes to your energy savings in the colder winter months.

Learn about these three ways for insulating your windows against the cooling temperatures in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Traditional Sealing Kits

Weatherproofing kits are a familiar sight in home improvement stores in the Salt Lake City area. These sealing kits include instructions 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 shy away from this method when they have a number of windows to weatherproof. And insulating a window with shrink film seals off any access to the window until the spring season. If these are concerns for you, insulating window treatments, like Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a preferred solution.

Polywood Shutters

Polywood Shutters Closed Tightly To Insulate The Windows For The Salt Lake City Winter

Constructed from synthetic wood, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment you’ll find in the Salt Lake City area. They insulate 70% better than the equivalent 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 are what makes Polywood shutters the preferred option for insulating your windows.

Solar Gard Window Film

You can apply the premium window film, Solar Gard, to your windows through every season. It does not affect your window’s look, unlike insulating kits. And the thing people love about Solar Gard is the option to open the window at any time. That’s because the film doesn’t stretch over the window frame.

Solar Gard is especially helpful during Salt Lake City winters because it blocks heat transfer through the glass. This means the cold air doesn’t enter and the warmth of the room remains in the room.
