When The Las Vegas Weather Cools - And The Ways You Can Insulate Your Windows Against It11/18/2015Darik Neilson During these winter months, the weather gets colder in Las Vegas. And when you see how that affects your energy bill, it’s time to find ways to lessen it. Insulating your windows contributes to your energy savings in the this 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 step-by-step information 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 there’s numerous windows to weatherproof. And when you apply shrink film to a window, this means the window is closed until spring. 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 Made from a wood polymer, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment you’ll find in the Las Vegas area. They shield against external conditions 70% better than a similar wood shutter, and 1600% better than an aluminum blind. 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 are what makes Polywood shutters the preferred solution for insulating your windows. Solar Gard Window Film Solar Gard is a premium window film you can apply to glass windows all year. It has no impact on the look of your window like an insulating kit does. And a fantastic feature of Solar Gard is the option to open the window any time you want. That’s because the film doesn’t stretch over the window frame. Solar Gard is very helpful during Las Vegas’s cooler seasons because it blocks heat transfer through the window. This means the chill air doesn’t enter and the warmth of the room doesn’t leave.
