Harrisburg Climate Recommendations
The southeastern portion of Pennsylvania, including Harrisburg and nearby cities like York, Lebanon, and Lancaster, is home to a humid-continental climate. This climate zone brings warm, humid summers and cold, snowy winters. Precipitation is expected year-round in this region, with Harrisburg experiencing on average 43 inches of rain and 28 inches of snow per year. Prepare for extreme fluctuations in temperature with energy-efficient glass and materials.
Frequent storms during winter in southeastern Pennsylvania can bring bitter cold and frozen precipitation. Wood windows with exterior aluminum cladding are ideal for withstanding the elements.
Keep warm in the winter by helping to reduce the heat loss from your home. Windows with panes of glass with Low-E help keep your home insulated, blocking out the Pennsylvania cold and helping keep the heat in.
For good insulation and protection from drafts and leaks, choose fiberglass awning windows.
