What Else Do Impact Windows Protect Against?
While famous for their protection against hurricane force winds, impact windows actually provide protection against a myriad of potential dangers to your home. Where standard windows would crack and shatter, impact windows are constructed to withstand forces upwards of even the fastest hurricane wind speeds. When deciding on whether or not to get high impact windows installed in your home, consider the additional protections they offer for you and your loved ones.
Impact windows offer tremendous home security over traditional windows. While designed with protecting your home against hurricane force winds in mind, impact windows are ideal against home invaders. Windows are one of the most common entry points for burglars to break into your home as they’re easy to smash with an array of equipment to even a simple rock. With impact windows, that becomes a worry of the past as this glass was intended to protect against 100+ mile per hour wind speeds. Your family can have peace of mind knowing that no home invaders are going to break into your home anytime soon.
One of the major benefits that comes with your impact windows is their innate ability to soundproof your home. Nobody wants to hear the hustle and bustle of traffic going down your street or neighbors noisily mowing their lawn outside on a Sunday morning. Standard windows have a Standard Transmission Coefficient, or STC, of 29 or less, with it drastically reducing depending on when they were originally installed. Our windows have an STC range of 32-35, which is a significant increase over standard windows. You’ll be able to enjoy the peace and calm of your home while the world outside rumbles along.
Higher Energy Bills
An ancillary bonus of having impact windows installed in your home is their natural insulation effect. Single pane windows tend to make your AC unit work overtime as more heat gets drawn in from the outside. Impact doors and windows do a phenomenal job of keeping the external heat down, meaning your entire HVAC has to do less to keep your home cool. This, in turn, helps lower your overall energy bill!
