As summertime approaches, many have begun installing impact windows in their homes to combat the heat. By having impact windows with a reflective film, that can be used to deflect the heat. To enhance the effect, shades, drapes, or blinds can be installed to enhance that effect. Usually, with regular windows, heat can become trapped inside your home, making it extremely hot during the day. This leads to higher electricity bills since your air conditioning would be working harder to cool the house. Impact windows keep the heat out, making your AC work less and keeping your electricity bill lower. Over time the investment on impact windows will show to save you a lot of money in different aspects of your home.
