5 Unexpected Reasons to Install Impact Resistant Windows This Summer
Summer storms can be dangerous for your home, and can be downright disastrous if a hurricane hits. Impact resistant windows can save your house from flooding in a storm, and can be beneficial for your home all year around as well.
Check out these five reasons to install impact resistant windows this summer.
- Save on Energy Bills
One benefit of installing impact resistant windows is that many of them have insulating capabilities, meaning fewer air leaks and temperature shifts during the summer and winter. This means your air conditioner or heating unit won’t have to run overtime to keep the temperature in your home comfortable, and that your home will be more energy efficient. Impact windows can therefore save you money on your energy bill each month by stabilizing the temperature in your home, no matter the weather outside.
- Permanent Storm Protection
You may have grown up hammering plywood panels over the windows in your home right before every hurricane season, or you may have fiddled with hurricane-proofing film that keeps your windows from shattering. Either way, that yearly task can be laborious, especially when it still may not be enough to protect your home. Impact resistant windows give you permanent protection against anything the weather might throw at you, whether that’s high impact debris or the wind and rain of tropical storms. This will not only save you time and money each year, but ensure that your home is protected no matter what Mother Nature throws at it.
- Noise Reduction
The thickness and insulation of impact resistant windows serve a double purpose – they keep storm debris from getting in, and they keep noise pollution out. Noise pollution interferes with communication and has been shown to increase physical and emotional stress, and damage hearing.
- Reduces UV Damage
Impact resistant windows also help protect your home from ultraviolet (UV) light. UV light can be damaging because it can wear away fabric, photographs and even paint in your home, especially in a sun-drenched area like Corpus Christi. The Low-E coating placed on high impact windows protects your furniture from fading and discoloration due to UV light while preventing breakage of the glass.
- Hurricane Protection
The main reason to install impact resistant windows is, of course, to protect your home from the dangerous storms of hurricane season. Windows and doors are extremely susceptible to wind damage, and are especially vulnerable to repeat damage caused by multiple storms. High-performance impact resistant windows such as the ones from Window World are especially engineered to withstand extreme wind and weather conditions.
