Impact Windows are not just for Hurricane Protection

The value of impact windows is well-known as one of the best ways to protect homes and businesses against damage from hurricanes. The windows have other benefits of which many people may not be aware.

Insurance Discounts

The installation of impact windows can earn you some substantial savings on your insurance policy premiums. Some insurance companies offer discounts for installing hurricane rated windows and other features. The windows minimize damage in the event of a hurricane, they provide protection against break-ins, and they’re Miami-Dade certified.

Sound Insulation

Sound pollution is one of the greatest problems affecting your peace and quiet. It originates from busy streets, noisy neighbors, barking dogs and a myriad of other sources. Impact windows are constructed with thicker glass and frames that minimize the sounds coming into your home or business. An added bonus is that sounds coming from your home will be muted to others.

Energy Saving Technology

Windows are the primary avenue through which heat and cool air enters or exits a structure. Impact windows feature thicker glass and an inner layer built into every pane that blocks UV rays coming into a home or business. When UV rays and sun shines through windows, it heats the air which makes air conditioning systems work harder.

Impact window systems also incorporate casements with stronger seals that aid in keeping the cool air in and reducing the transference of warm air to the inside. The less often that air conditioning units run, the less energy is consumed. There are also coatings that can be applied to the glass for further savings.

Resale Value

Impact windows significantly increase the resale value of your home or business. They look stylish and are a money-saving option that buyers will appreciate. Energy-saving features and protection against hurricanes are important features to buyers.

How Impact Glass Can Positively Affect your Wallet

Impact glass will affect your wallet and budget in a variety of positive ways. While it’s true that the initial cost outlay is typically more than for traditional storm shutters and panels, that cost is more than offset by the benefits and ways it can save money over the long-term.

Safety and Security

Impact glass will splinter, but it won’t break and shatter like ordinary glass. No would-be criminal is going to want to expend the time and effort or risk the noise that they’ll make, that will be required to actually break impact glass. Impact glass is a definite deterrent to break-ins.

Storage and Maintenance

Storm shutters are relatively inexpensive options, but they take up valuable storage space when they’re not in use. They also require periodic maintenance to ensure they’re in proper working condition. Impact glass is a once-and-done solution and the only maintenance required is ordinary glass cleaning.

Time Savings

It requires a considerable amount of time to retrieve storm panels and erect them. Even if you have attached storm shutters, you’ll still need to ensure they’re working properly. If they’re not, you’ll have to repair or replace them and both options are time-consuming endeavors.

UV Protection

You may not realize it, but every time sunlight enters your home, UV and infrared rays also enter that are detrimental to furnishings, floor coverings and drapes. All of those items can be expensive to replace due to fading and discoloration. Impact glass prevents premature damage while allowing the light to enter.

Sound Buffering

Noise pollution is a very real problem that can affect people psychologically. Impact glass will beautify your home while significantly reducing outside sounds and noise that can interrupt sleep and disrupt family time. It also provides a buffer to keep indoor sounds from escaping to annoy your neighbors. You don’t have to install expensive fencing or soundproofing to get the peace, quiet and privacy you deserve.

Convenience

The convenience of impact windows and doors can’t be overstated. You can go on vacation anywhere in the world without worrying about hiring someone to secure your home if a hurricane strikes or performing repairs if damage occurs. Impact glass is installed once and it will continue to protect your home in a variety of wallet-friendly ways and provide piece of mind.
