Looking to update the windows of your Albuquerque home? We may have what you’re looking for -- even if you may not know it yet. Because of the New Mexico climate, you need windows that are going to help protect your home from the near constant sunlight. Sliding windows are the ideal type of window for homeowners who need a little extra protection from the sun’s rays.
Albuquerque Homeowners are No Strangers to the Sun
As a resident of Albuquerque, you are well acquainted with the sun. Home to a dry warm temperature climate, Albuquerque experiences sunshine all year-round. Clouds have been known to make a handful of rare appearances during the cooler months of the year, but for the most part they sit back and let the sun do most of the work.
Though the summers tend to be long and hot, the trade-off that keeps Albuquerque homeowners happy is the consistent air movement and low humidity. The spring months also provide a sample of wind and rain as a brief respite from the dry and warm temperatures.
But what does all this mean for your home? It means you need windows that are going to block the sun’s heat from penetrating the cool and comfortable climate of your home. For the days when you wouldn’t mind a bit of fresh New Mexico air, you’ll also need windows that offer simple and convenient access to the outdoors. Sliding windows are the answer.
