If you’ve lived in Florida through even a single hurricane season, you know how important it is to stay protected and prepared. But have you ever stopped to think about what other benefits there might be to investing in your home? Outfitting your home with impact-resistant windows will not only bring you peace of mind during those troublesome and stressful parts of the year but believe it or not, they can help save you money in the long run. Updating your home can not only help keep your family safe, but it can help keep your wallet looking a little fatter every month.
How They Work
Impact-resistant windows do a lot to not only keep your home safe, but keep it nice and cool as well. The modern technological process that goes into making these windows can bring down your energy consumption in a number of ways. You may be thinking, “how is it any different than what I already have? Can this really help me save money?” Well, let’s start with the basics. Air that escapes through the window panes of a home can actually be responsible for 10-25% of your electric bill; this is especially an issue in those older homes in need of a little TLC.
Just by updating your windows you can help fix this problem and save yourself some money in the long run. Impact windows use glass laminated with a special low emissivity coating that helps to insulate your home further, either keeping the warm air in during those frigid winter months or the heat out during those warm summer months.
Why Insulation Matters
Generally what we find is that the older the home, the more in need of insulation it is. We find that window panes around the house are often old, worn out, and in need of being resealed. Replacing the windows around your house with impact-resistant, hurricane-proof windows will not only keep you and your family safer, but it will help to drastically cut down on your energy consumption. By better insulating your home, you end up keeping the cool air inside. Your air conditioner won’t be working as hard so it won’t be using as much energy to function. As an added bonus, an insulated home is a quieter home. This can be especially helpful if you live near a highway or any busy intersections. Keeping the noise out can make your life more peaceful and even help you sleep better throughout the night.
