Hartford Climate Recommendations
Much of Connecticut experiences cold winters and hot, humid summers, although areas in the Southern portion of the state, like much of Fairfield, New Haven, Middlesex, and New London counties have milder winters thanks to the nearby Long Island Sound and the Atlantic Ocean. Low-E insulated window glass can keep your home comfortable year-round.
In coastal climates close to water, your windows are more vulnerable to corrosion from the salt in the air. The closer your home is to the water, the more susceptible you are to the effects. Consider fiberglass to help maintain window integrity.
Keep warm in the winter by helping to reduce the heat loss from your home. Windows with panes of glass with Low-E may help keep your home insulated, blocking out the cold and helping keep the heat in.
