At Sunburst Shutters Chicago, it’s no surprise to us that our industry-leading custom plantation shutters are eligible for a home energy credit. Our approach to window treatments is unique and unlike other brands. Polywood® Shutters were created as an insulating system and are the most energy-efficient window treatments in Chicago. Dissimilar to any other interior shutter, Polywood® Shutters come with proprietary weatherstripping to block external temperatures that may otherwise come through your windows. Polywood’s chemically bonded paint finish, construction density, and other characteristics also play a role in these plantation shutters being the most energy-efficient window treatments you can buy.

Third-party testing concludes that Polywood® Shutters obstruct up to 30 degrees of airflow entering through a window and boast a 45.96% heat transfer reduction. They’ve also been proven to be up to 70% more energy-conserving than wood plantation shutters and 1600% better than traditional aluminum blinds. This type of insulation results in big savings on your utility bills, and in 2023, it earns you the benefit of an energy-efficient window tax credit!
