Living in a hot climate has a unique set of challenges when it comes to home maintenance. Although extreme heat and humidity may be the norm in your area, your home needs to remain a comfortable place to live in. The right windows installation choices can help achieve this. To that end, here are some recommendations from Renewal by Andersen® of Dallas and Fort Worth.
Improvement in Ventilation
You cannot achieve comfort inside your home without ensuring proper ventilation first. Choose windows that will not only make your interior brighter but will help make it feel cooler as well. For instance, installing a casement window in a small bedroom is a great way to make the space feel open and bright, while also allowing a refreshing breeze to cycle through the space for some much-needed ventilation.
Keeping the Heat Out
Great replacement windows allow you to have as much natural light in your home as possible without dealing with unwanted side effects like a hot living space or faded furnishings. The key is choosing products that are built with high-performance glass designed to block as much heat as possible. Renewal by Andersen® of Dallas and Fort Worth offers such products, with glass packages that can block as much as 83% to 95% of rays from penetrating your home. Our High-Performance™ Low-E4® Sun™ package even has a layer of tint to provide extra protection from solar heat gain, which is best for sunnier locations.
Extreme heat can be extra damaging to traditional window frames. You may have energy-efficient glass on your windows but their effectiveness will be diminished if you don’t have the right frames. Choose window frames made from durable materials like Fibrex®, which has been proven superior to wood and vinyl in resisting rot, warping and decay.
Don’t entrust your home to just any window contractor. Instead, let Renewal by Andersen® of Dallas and Fort Worth help you find the right windows to help you maintain a comfortable indoor temperature even when it’s hot outside.
