When The Charlotte Weather Cools - And The Steps You Can Take To Insulate Your Windows Against It

November 18, 2015

Every year around this time, the weather sees a drop in temperatures in Charlotte. And when you see how that affects your energy bill, you’ll be looking for ways to cut it down. Insulating your windows goes a long way toward saving energy throughout the cooler temperatures of winter.

Here are three ways to insulate your windows against the cooling temperatures in Charlotte, NC.

Traditional Sealing Kits

Weatherproofing kits are a familiar sight in home improvement stores in the Charlotte area. These sealing kits include a guide on how much of the film to cut, where to stick the tape, and how to shrink the film with a hairdryer. This reduces heat loss and drafts.

But some homeowners look for alternatives to weatherproofing kits when there’s multiple windows to weatherproof. And insulating a window with shrink film means the window is closed until spring. If these are concerns for you, insulating window treatments, such as Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a a more favorable choice.

The shutter frame, the louver material, and the weather stripping are what makes Polywood shutters the best solution for insulating your home.

Solar Gard Window Film

Apply Solar Gard window film to glass windows twelve months a year. It doesn’t change your window’s look like an insulating kit does. And the thing people love about Solar Gard is that you can open the window whenever you wish because the film is limited to the glass area, and not the frame.

Solar Gard is very convenient during Charlotte’s colder months because it decreases heat transfer through the glass. This means the cool air remains out and the warmth of the room stays...well...in the room.
