Florida Climate Recommendations
Thanks to a humid subtropical climate across most of the state, Florida experiences hot, humid summers, mild winters, and rainfall year-round. The southern portion of the state has a tropical climate, which means cities like Miami experience a steady year-round warm temperature and a more concentrated rainy season. Florida is no stranger to hurricanes. No matter what part of the state you are in, you may want to consider hurricane-resistant impact glass.
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 your home comfortable — and protected from the heat — with Low-E insulating glass that will also help keep energy costs down. SunDefense® Low-E Insulating Glass with Argon1 can block 94 percent of the sun’s heat and ultraviolet rays.
Coastal regions that experience hurricanes and tropical storms may wish to consider impact glass.
