When The Sacramento Weather Cools - And How To Insulate Your Windows Against It

November 18, 2015

Every year around this time, the weather sees a drop in temperatures in Sacramento. And when you get the first utility statement of the season, it’s time to find ways to scale it down. Insulating your windows is a great way to save energy in the season’s colder climate.

Explore these three ways for insulating your windows in preparation for the colder weather in Sacramento, CA.

Traditional Sealing Kits

It’s common to see weatherproofing kits in home improvement stores in the Sacramento area. Store-bought sealing kits come with step-by-step information on where to stick the tape, the amount of film to cut, and the best way to shrink the film. This reduces heat loss and drafts.

However some homeowners find shrinkable window film a hassle when there’s multiple windows to cover. And when you apply shrink film to a window, this 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 choice.

Polywood Shutters

Polywood Shutters Closed Tightly To Insulate The Windows For The Sacramento Winter

Crafted from synthetic wood, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment you’ll find in the Sacramento area. They insulate 70% better than the equivalent wood shutter, and 1600% better than an aluminum blind. Polywood blocks airflow by up to 45% and deflects temperature by 30°.

The shutter frame, the louver material, and the weather stripping are what makes Polywood shutters the top choice for insulating your house.

Solar Gard Window Film

Solar Gard is a premium window film you can apply to the window pane all year. It does not affect the look of your window, which is not the case with insulating kits. And the thing people love about 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 very beneficial during Sacramento winters because it blocks heat transfer through the window. Now the cooler air stays out and the warmth of the room remains in the room.
