When The Kingsport Weather Cools Down - And The Ways You Can Insulate Your Windows Against It

November 18, 2015

Every year around this time, the weather gets colder in Kingsport. And when you see how that affects your energy bill, it’s time to find ways to decrease it. Insulating your windows goes a long way toward saving energy during the cooler temperatures of winter.

Here are three ways you can insulate your windows for the upcoming drop in temperature in Kingsport, TN.

Traditional Sealing Kits

Weatherproofing kits are available in home improvement stores in the Kingsport area. Store-bought sealing kits include step-by-step information on how much of the film to cut, where to stick the tape, and how to shrink the film with a hairdryer. This cuts down on heat loss from drafts.

But most homeowners find shrinkable window film a hassle if there are multiple windows to insulate. And when you insulate a window with shrink film, it means the window is closed until the weather warms up. If these are challenges for you, insulating window treatments, like Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a better option.

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

The shutter frame, the louver material, and the weather stripping make Polywood shutters the preferred option for insulating your home.

Solar Gard Window Film

Apply Solar Gard window film to glass windows year round. It has no impact on the look of your window, unlike insulating kits. And the thing people love about Solar Gard is the ability to open the window whenever you wish since the film doesn’t cover the edges.

Solar Gard is very beneficial during Kingsport winters because it blocks heat transfer through the window’s glass. This way, the cooler air stays out and the warmth of the room stays...well...in the room.
