Less Energy, Saving Money
Living in South Florida, we know we’ll be getting brutal summers and intense sun year-round. While we might love the weather, our wallets might beg to differ when it’s time to pay the energy bill. Even more so, if you live in South Florida, you know that we get hurricanes and a lot of them. For this, you may be looking into hurricane resistant windows, proven to be effective for up to 200 miles per hour winds and are, yes, energy efficient.
How Hurricane Windows Save Money
One reason our energy bills are so high is because our windows are not sealed tightly enough. This causes the cool air to spill out, making your air conditioning unit work harder and longer, causing your bill to rise. Hurricane glass is different; it is laminated glass made by fusing two or more layers of glass with a plastic interlayer. This plastic interlayer makes an excellent insulator, meaning that more of your air conditioning will be kept inside, the heat will be kept outside, and the money will remain in your wallet.
When your air leaks out of your home, your air conditioning unit works harder. This energy has to come from somewhere, and that somewhere is fossil fuels. By making the switch to hurricane resistant windows, you are not only saving your money but saving the environment, too! By using less energy, you’re burning fewer fossil fuels and contributing far less to the greenhouse gases that are destroying the ozone layer. As a bonus, hurricane resistant windows block 99% of UV rays, which not only makes your home stay cooler but protects you and your family from these harmful rays that can damage your skin.
