What Are the Benefits of Impact Windows?

If you’ve been thinking about having new house windows installed, you may be wondering if impact windows are a good investment. While these windows are typically associated with offering protection in the event of a hurricane, there are actually a wide range of benefits to investing in impact windows. Here are some of the top benefits you can expect when you have impact windows installed on your home.

Protection from High Winds & Sudden Impact

As mentioned, impact windows offer excellent protection for your home in inclement weather. Your windows are typically the weakest point of your home’s exterior, which can be problematic during hurricanes, tropical storms, and other severe weather events. Impact windows offer enhanced durability to better withstand the elements to keep you and your home protected. The glass in impact windows is laminated, preventing it from shattering and collapsing. This is important because a broken window during a hurricane will allow those hurricane-force winds to sweep through your home, which can rip the roof off your home and cause other extensive damage.

In addition to protecting against impact, these windows also feature a beefier frame that is secured in place more thoroughly than standard windows. This allows the impact windows to withstand high winds during a storm, while a standard window could be ripped out of the opening altogether in hurricane-force winds. For those living in a HVHZ (high-velocity hurricane zones), impact windows provide much-needed protection. In fact, building codes now requires impact windows in HVHZs specifically for this purpose.

Enhanced Energy Efficiency & Lower Utility Bills

Because impact windows are built with thicker and more durable parts and sealed in place more securely, they also offer the best energy efficiency for your home. Hurricane impact windows can help prevent heat transfer into and out of your home, contributing to a more comfortable and consistent temperature throughout your home’s interior. This has the benefit of reducing the strain on your HVAC system, which can result in lower energy bills month after month.

Reduced Noise Pollution from Outside

The insulating capabilities also make impact windows a great option for reducing noise pollution. Whether you’re near a busy highway, train tracks, an airport, or any other noisy area, impact windows can help prevent those noises from feeling like they’re inside your home. The result is a quieter and more tranquil home environment.

Better Safety and Security for Your Home

The structural reinforcements and heavy-duty components of impact windows don’t just keep out the weather. It can also help prevent intruders from breaking into your home, helping to increase its security while keeping you and your household safe.
