When The San Diego Weather Gets Colder - And The Ways You Can Insulate Your Windows Against It

November 18, 2015

During these winter months, the weather cools down in San Diego. And when you see how that affects your energy bill, you’ll want some tips on how to cut it down. Insulating your windows goes a long way toward saving energy during the cooler temperatures of winter.

Explore these three ways for insulating your windows for the upcoming drop in temperature in San Diego, CA.

Traditional Sealing Kits

Weatherproofing kits are available in grocery stores in the San Diego area. They come with instructions on where to stick the tape, the amount of film to cut, and the best way to shrink the film. This reduces drafts and heat loss.

However most homeowners find shrinkable window film a hassle when there’s numerous windows to cover. And insulating a window with shrink film means you can’t open it 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.

Polywood Shutters

Polywood Shutters Closed Tightly To Insulate The Windows For The San Diego Winter

Constructed from synthetic wood, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment available in the San Diego 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 reduces the effects of temperature by 30°.

The weather stripping, the shutter frame, and the louver material combine to make Polywood shutters the preferred solution for insulating your house.

Solar Gard Window Film

You can apply the premium window film, Solar Gard, to the window pane 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 the ability to open the window any time you want because the film is limited to the glass area, and not the frame.

Solar Gard is particularly convenient during San Diego’s cooler seasons because it decreases heat transfer through the window’s glass. Now the cold air doesn’t enter and the heat of the room doesn’t leave.
