Jacksonville Climate Recommendations
Jacksonville is classified as having a humid subtropical climate, which means that the summers are hot and wet and the winters are mild and dry. It is recommended that you use energy-efficient glass to help protect against these conditions. Living near the coast, with heavy rainfall concentrated in the hottest months of the year, you’ll also want to consider materials and finishes that can maintain appearance and performance in the salty air.
With persistent clouds and drizzle nearly all year round, consider investing in moisture-resistant window materials, such as fiberglass or vinyl.
Keep your home comfortable — and help protect from the heat — with Low-E insulating glass that will also help keep energy costs down. SunDefense® Low-E Insulating Glass with Argon can block 94 percent of the sun’s heat and ultraviolet rays.3
In coastal climates close to water, windows are 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. Vinyl, fiberglass, and wood with aluminum cladding can resist wear from the sun and the ocean air.
