Ok, so we all know that impact windows can provide adequate hurricane protection for ourselves and our families, but in addition to storm protection, these impact windows and doors have several other benefits which include the following:
- Homeowners insurance discounts
- Noise eliminating features
- Energy Efficiency
- Ultraviolet ray protection
- Eliminate or reduce burglaries
Live in an area with a lot of outside noise?
Then you will love impact resistant windows, because they are designed to be a buffer or to reduce outside noise levels, so the inside of your house will be a lot more tranquil. Research has indicated that these storm windows can reduce as much as 70% or external sounds.
Want to reduce your monthly energy costs?
Another reason to love hurricane windows is that they will make your home more energy efficient and as a result your central air conditioning system will consume up to 50% less energy, as it doesn’t have to work as hard to keep your home at the desired temperature.
Why your home needs sunscreen protection?
If you live in an area such as Miami that has year round sunshine, then all that sunlight can be damaging to the interior of your house, especially for furniture, paintings, carpets, wood flooring, curtains and drapes. With storm proof windows you can get as much as 99 percent ultraviolet ray protection.
Want to make your home more secure from thieves?
These windows and doors are great for preventing burglaries as the impact glass can’t be broken very easily. A burglar won’t be able to break your windows or sliding glass door with a hammer or by throwing a stone at them. This is why these doors and windows are considered to be forced-entry resistant. This is another reason why insurance companies love these hurricane windows and that is why they won’t have any problems giving Miami homeowners a discount that decide to install them on their home.
