Long Island Climate Recommendations
Due to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, Long Island has a fairly moderate climate compared to the rest of the state, with long, hot summers and cool winters. Slightly colder temperatures are more likely on the north and east side of Long Island as you move away from the more densely populated areas of Brooklyn and Queens, while the western and southern parts of the island are more likely to see higher levels of precipitation.
Energy Efficiency/Insulating Glass.
Pella® offers patio doors with Low-E glass to help keep your home insulated from Long Island’s chilly winters and moderate summers.
Diverse Climate (or Fluctuating Temps).
Prepare for bitterly cold winters and semi-humid summers with Pella® Impervia®. This strong fiberglass, for both windows and patio doors, is durable enough to help withstand extreme heat and subzero cold.
In coastal climates close to water, your windows and sliding doors 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.
