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

November 18, 2015

During these winter months, the weather gets colder in Las Vegas. And when you see how that affects your energy bill, you’ll be looking for ways to lessen it. Insulating your windows contributes to your energy savings in the season’s colder climate.

Learn about these three ways for insulating your windows against the cooling temperatures in Las Vegas, NV.

Traditional Sealing Kits

Weatherproofing kits are available in home improvement stores in the Las Vegas area. Store-bought sealing kits contain a guide on where to place the tape, the length of film to cut, and how to shrink the film with a blowdryer. This reduces heat loss and drafts.

Yet some homeowners find shrinkable window film a hassle when they have a number of windows to cover. And when you apply shrink film to a window, this means you can’t open it until the weather warms up. If these things concern you, insulating window treatments, such as Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a a more favorable solution.

Polywood Shutters

Polywood reduces airflow by up to 45% and reduces the effects of temperature by 30°.

The weather stripping, the shutter frame, and the louver material make Polywood shutters the top option 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 has no impact on the look of your window like an insulating kit does. And the best part of Solar Gard is the option to open the window at any time since the film doesn’t cover the edges.

Solar Gard is particularly helpful during Las Vegas’s cooler seasons because it reduces heat transfer through the window. This means the chill air doesn’t enter and the warmth of the room doesn’t leave.
