The weather can get nasty hot in Nevada and all you really want to do is be safe inside somewhere cool when those days hit. Wouldn’t you like to be able to relax in your home with that cool air? That might not be possible if you have older windows. But Henderson, NV replacement windows can give you the protection you need from the heat. If you want to get new windows, there are a few things you might want to include in order to protect yourself from the heat.
Low-E coatings on the glass are probably one of the most important things to incorporate on new windows to beat the heat outside. Low-E coatings are metallic coatings that are visible to the naked eye. You won’t notice a difference in your view, but there will be a positive difference in the heat. First, the coating blocks UV rays out of the home so you don’t have to worry about fading furniture and flooring any longer. Second, these coatings reflect heat. That means in the summer, when it’s unbearably hot outside, the heat will be reflected back out. In the winter, when there’s a chill in the air, the heat reflects back in. So you’ll get benefits from low-E glass any season of the year.
Triple Pane Glass
If you have really old windows, they may only have one pane of glass. That really doesn’t do much to block out the heat from your home. Windows today come with double pane glass as a standard. You can also upgrade to triple pane glass, which gives you even more efficiency. Triple pane glass gives you an extra layer of insulation and protection against the heat outside. It’ll also help reduce noise from coming inside.
Inert Gas Fillings
When you have double pane glass, or triple pane upgrades, you can put inert gas between the panes instead of just air. The options are argon or krypton gas. Argon is easy to find since it is available in the environment. It costs more than air fillings, but less than krypton, which is manufactured. Krypton gas, however, is even denser and insulates better. Both are good options to help you block out more heat.
