High temperatures this season can cause heat-related casualties, not only in Pennsylvania, but nationwide. Since heat-related concerns can be really bothersome, weather experts have forewarned residents, urging them to take precautionary measures. Heat alerts were issued recently. According to a report on Fox 43 Central Pensylvannia News Online:
HOT AIR: We’re peaking midweek with the heat and humidity way up! Highs today will be in the low 90s. Humidity will make it feel closer to 100°. Expect a hazy, foggy start with passing clouds through the day. An isolated storm may fire late, which could be strong. We’re dropping to the low 70s tonight.
So how do we make sure that our home can provide us protection during dire and extreme weather conditions?
According to the Department of Energy, windows provide our homes with natural light, warmth, and ventilation. Having properly designated windows can control the circulation of air inside your home. Natural ventilation that windows provide prevents heat buildup during daytime, and most especially during hot weathered days. It is important 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, the replacement windows in Allentown offered by Renewal by Andersen come in various designs that will help control the flow of air inside of your home.
Protecting your family from heat-related incidents may not be easy, but you can start taking precautionary measures at home.
