    How New Windows Can Help Keep Your Home Cooler

    Last updated 4 years ago

    You may think that propping your windows open during a hot summer day will help keep your home cooler, but a light breeze will only deliver temporary relief from the heat. If you have old windows, you may want to consider replacing them with new models. Here’s how new windows keep your home cooler:

    • Consider Window Design
    Obvious factors, such as the size and placement of your windows, will affect how much heat enters your home. However, the type of glass and frame of your window will also have a large impact on how much heat enters your home. For instance, high-performance glazing can drastically reduce the amount of heat energy that comes through the glass without compromising natural light. Explore your options when it comes to fixed-pane or sliding windows. If you’re looking for good ventilation but airtight closure, consider casement or awning windows.

    • Consider Window Properties
    New windows come with specified ratings. These numbers help you to determine how much protection from heat a window can offer your home. The SHGC number relays how much solar radiation is admitted through a window; a lower SHGC means less solar heat transmission and better shading for your home. Confirm that the air leakage number has a low rating to ensure a tight window assembly.

    If you’re not an expert, don’t try to install new windows on your own. A poorly installed window, no matter how energy efficient it is, could compromise your efforts to keep your house cool. At California Glass & Window, we understand that your windows are part of a sophisticated ventilation system. Our award-winning team of professionals provides the best installation services for our Orange County clients.
