While you may not be able to predict much about the future, if there’s one thing that’s certain about the summer, it’s that the heat in Nevada is going to rise—significantly. Before you dread another summer of sweating and steaming, consider replacement windows in Henderson, NV. While they can’t do much for you when you’re outside, they can stop the summer heat from flowing into your home and keep you cool all summer long. Here are a few ways they do that.
Panes Of Glass
If your old windows only have one pane of glass, the heat from outside can flow through that pretty easily. When you add a pane of glass to double pane, which comes standard in new windows, you stop that heat from getting in. You can even get triple pane glass, which does even more. Not only does the glass slow the heat transfer, but there are spaces between the glass, which can have air, or inert gas, which is even denser and stops heat flow even more.
Homeowners in Nevada are smart to get low-E coatings on their new windows. This metallic coating is thin and invisible, but works hard for your home. The coating is reflective and bounces the heat of the summer back outside of your home. In the winter, when it’s chilly, it will reflect the heat back into your home, so that’s handy as well. Not only do the coatings protect your home from the heat of the sun, but they also keep dangerous UV rays out. You no longer have to replace things like furniture and flooring because they are faded from the sun’s rays. And you don’t have to close your house up with window coverings to keep it cool in the summer. The sun’s light can shine through, but the heat stays out.
These are just a few of the ways that replacement windows will keep the summer heat out of your home. While it’s nice to know you won’t be sweating it out inside all summer long, it’s even better to hear that while you’re cool and comfortable, your energy bills are even lower than ever. You save money while maintaining a new level of comfort. While new windows are an investment, you can start paying yourself back right away. And most people feel the comfort is worth the cost, anyway.
