High summer temperatures can be the cause of many heat-related concerns, for both you and your home. Heat alerts have been issued recently and local meteorologists have alerted residents to take precautionary measures.
According to the Department of Energy, windows provide our homes with natural light, warmth, and ventilation. Newer, properly installed windows will help control the circulation of air inside your home. Natural ventilation that windows provide prevents heat buildup during daytime, especially during the average summer’s hot-weather days between July 1 and September 1. It is important that homeowners also consider which window type they should install, as there are window types that can maximize the ventilation inside the house.
Efficient windows can do a great deal to improve ventilation indoors, regardless of the weather. Look for a window with mechanism/design features that allow air to come in and water to stay out. In fact, replacement windows in Allentown provided by Renewal by Andersen of Northeast Pennsylvania come in various designs that will help to control the flow of air inside of your home.
