5 Top Reasons Why You Need Impact Windows Now
April 15, 2023
Upgrading to new windows is one of the most effective ways to protect your family and property. During hurricanes, high winds and flying debris can easily break through traditional windows, causing extensive damage to property and homeowners.
Impact windows are made of durable frames and multiple layers of laminated glass to withstand the strong wind and impact from debris. If you’re a Florida homeowner, investing in impact replacement windows is not only a matter of safety but also a smart financial decision.
Let’s explore some reasons to upgrade to impact windows:
1. Protect from the Elements
Non-impact windows have a single layer of glass and a thin frame. They are not designed to withstand the same level of force as impact windows. This makes them much more vulnerable to damage during a hurricane. They can also break easily, producing long, sharp splinters of glass. Impact glass, on the other hand, consists of three layers fused together, resulting in a much stronger, sturdier glass unit.
ARMORVUE’s hurricane impact windows are engineered to endure extreme weather conditions, including winds of up to Category 5 hurricane strength. With this, you can rest assured your home and family will be protected from the elements.
2. Protect from Intruders
Impact windows can also protect against intruders. The laminated glass in impact windows is much harder to break than traditional single-pane windows, making it difficult for intruders to enter your home.
Although impact glass might crack under forced or blunt pressure, it will remain intact and not shatter like non-impact glass because its vinyl interlayer allows it to remain intact.
ARMORVUE’s impact-resistant windows provide a superior level of security compared to traditional windows. Their glass and reinforced frames make them harder to break or force open. As a result, your family can enjoy increased safety and peace of mind knowing that they are well-protected against potential intruders.
3. Protect from harmful UV Light
Impact windows protect against harmful UV light through advanced coatings on the glass. These coatings are designed to reflect or absorb UV radiation, preventing it from entering your home. While traditional windows can allow harmful UV rays to enter your home, ARMORVUE impact-resistant windows feature advanced coatings that block UV rays. This protects your skin from harmful radiation, as well as reduces fading and damage to your furniture, carpets, and other belongings.
ARMORVUE impact-resistant windows let you enjoy natural light without worrying about the harmful effects of UV radiation.
4. Energy-Efficient (Lower Cooling Costs)
Traditional windows allow heat to enter your home, forcing your air conditioning system to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature. This can lead to higher energy bills and increased wear and tear on your HVAC system.
In contrast, ARMORVUE impact-resistant windows are designed to provide superior insulation, helping to keep your home cooler. The advanced coatings on the glass can reflect solar heat, preventing it from entering your home and reducing the amount of cooling needed to maintain a comfortable temperature. This lowers your energy bills and extends the life of your HVAC system.
5. Tax Break on Hurricane Windows
Homeowners who invest in impact-resistant windows may also be eligible for tax incentives or rebates. For instance, between July 1, 2022, and June 20, 2024, Florida homeowners who replace their traditional windows, doors and garage doors are eligible for a sales tax exemption.
Save money on the upfront cost of your new windows by taking advantage of this tax exemption period.
