Whether you love it – or even hate it – one thing that can’t be argued is the fact that temperatures can reach extreme heights during the summer season. While it’s ideal to have a strong exterior at any time of year, as a homeowner, there are ways you can keep your home protected against the resilient summertime heat, and one such way is to invest in strong and durable windows. In today’s blog, we’ll be talking about why we believe that quality windows are a must, especially during the summer months. If that sounds interesting, read below for more information, or get in touch with us at Oceanside Exteriors for roofing, siding, and window replacement services in greater Portland, Maine!
Your home should be a comfortable place for you, your family, and other visitors to enjoy, and nothing says ‘comfort’ quite like an interior temperature that is consistent and well-regulated. Strong windows, particularly when they are installed properly and with sufficient insulation, can keep unwanted drafts and winds from entering your home, which helps to restore balance to your interior temperature. When this occurs, you’ll find less of a need to reach for the thermostat and/or air conditioning, which leads us to our next point as to why strong windows are important to have during the summertime.
As it turns out, strong windows can contribute to an overall stronger and more functional home, and what homeowner would say no to this? When you close your windows, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that air or drafts won’t leak into your home – both of which cause you to utilize air conditioning and other forms of energy. Not only will your mind be thanking you, but your wallet as well! Strong windows help to improve the energy efficiency of your home, which provides many benefits for homeowners and the environment alike.
Another benefit of strong windows that is perhaps overlooked is the fact that they can protect elements of your home’s interior from harmful UV rays that are emitted by the sun. While many of us protect our own skin during the summer with the likes of SPF, we may not think of providing the same level of protection for our furniture, curtains, etc. despite the fact that they are vulnerable to sun damage. Advanced windows will not only keep your furnishings protected from the sun’s rays, but you, your family, and your pets, as well!
