Choosing the Right Windows for Your Home Office
Advanced technology has made it possible for more and more people to pursue their careers from the comfort of their homes, but a comfortable home environment doesn’t necessarily translate into the ideal workspace. In fact, the windows in your home office were probably not selected with daily working hours in mind. If you’re planning a window replacement project that includes upgrading your home office, here are a few tips to keep in mind:
Investing in energy-efficient windows is a smart idea for any room in your home, but it’s especially important for a home office where you plan to spend a great deal of time during the day. Windows that are designed to prevent heat transfer will help maintain a comfortable temperature in your home office with less demand on your cooling and heating systems. And you may find this perk especially important now that you’re spending your workdays at home, which could lead to increased HVAC usage and skyrocketing energy bills.
Another benefit of choosing energy-efficient windows is that the reflective coatings incorporated in the glass will help protect your home office furnishings from fading due to ongoing UV light exposure. This can help prevent the need for premature replacement of furniture, drapes, and wall hangings.
Replacing your ordinary windows with impact-resistant ones is a smart move to protect your entire home from storm damage, but it may be especially important for your home office. Think about the computer equipment and other valuable materials you’re likely to store in your office. Are they at high risk for damage if your office windows break under pressure during a violent storm? Additionally, impact windows are notoriously hard for would-be burglars to break into. And they provide excellent insulation against outside noise that could be distracting and cause you to be less productive when you’re working at home.
