The Many Benefits of Choosing Impact Windows for Your Home
Impact-resistant windows, also known as hurricane windows, were invented to help protect homeowners and their property from the dangers that can occur when windows give way during a powerful storm. Windows that break during a hurricane can dramatically increase the amount of property damage by allowing heavy rain and high-speed winds to enter a home. Even worse, the shards of glass from a broken window may become wind-driven missiles that can cause serious injury to anyone who’s sheltering inside the home.
This is a highly worthwhile benefit on its own, of course. However, if you’re thinking of replacing your ordinary windows with new ones built to withstand impacts, you’ll also want to consider the wealth of additional benefits you’ll receive when you do. Here are only a few of them:
Improved Energy Efficiency
The laminated glass and reinforced frames that make impact windows so resistant to storm damage also help keep outside air outdoors where it belongs. This means your investment in impact windows is likely to lower your cooling and heating costs.
Home Invasion Deterrence
A window that can’t be breached by a wind-driven missile is unlikely to yield to a would-be intruder. Burglars and other intruders that could harm your family or belongings will be far less likely to target your home when it’s outfitted with impact windows.
Exceptional Noise Buffering
Tired of being awakened by the early morning roar of your neighbor’s lawnmower or the late-night blare from a nearby party? Impact windows can help you with that. Once you have them installed, you’ll notice a dramatic decrease in the amount of outside noise that invades your home.
