South-Central Florida Climate Recommendations
Much of Florida has a humid subtropical climate, bringing hot, humid summers and mild winters; while cities like Miami in southern Florida are home to a tropical climate, meaning a warmer and steady yearly average temperature. In Florida, the possibility of hurricanes exists, so consider impact glass for windows and patio doors.
Keep Your Home Cool/Block Solar Heat.
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 Argon2 can block 94 percent of the sun’s heat and ultraviolet rays.
Prepare your windows for the humid coastal winds, salty ocean air, and abundant sunshine from living on the West Coast. Exterior finishes like aluminum cladding can help resist fading and look great for years.
Low country and coastal regions that experience hurricanes and tropical storms may wish to consider impact glass.
