South-Central Florida Climate Recommendations
Most of central and southern Florida has a humid subtropical climate, with hot, humid summers and mild winters. Some very southern parts of the state, including Miami, have a tropical climate, with a steadier year-round temperature. Heavy rainfall and hurricanes are not uncommon in Florida, so consider window finishes and materials that can help stand up to humidity and salty air.
Coastal regions that experience hurricanes and tropical storms may wish to consider impact glass.
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
Prepare your windows for the humid coastal winds, salty ocean air, and abundant sunshine.
