How Tinted Hurricane Windows Improve Homes and Buildings

Window Tinting for Homes and Businesses

Although our region is considered ‘paradise’, the inside of our Miami homes and buildings are constantly fighting the hot sun the majority of the year. Many homeowners and commercial businesses struggle to find ways to reduce the intense glare and decrease energy bills. Most enjoy the sunshine outdoors; but would agree that keeping indoors cool is highly preferred.

Hurricane Tinted Windows

The number one way to reduce sunlight indoors is with window tinting. For premium protection from UV rays, and the best way to lower energy bills in Miami, is with hurricane windows. Standard tinted windows do not provide anywhere near the type of protection  hurricane windows do from UV rays or energy efficiency.

What is the Difference between Tinted Hurricane Windows and Standard Windows?

Standard windows are typically manufactured with just single-pane or double-pane glass. They have no special coatings or treatments to block UV rays without an added applied coating after production. Hurricane windows are manufactured with built-in UV protection specifically intended for helping homes to avoid the negative effects of the sun’s rays.

The features of hurricane windows, such as low-emissivity (aka: low-E) glass coatings help to block a portion of UV rays. Low-E coatings also help to reflect infrared heat and is a significant advantage for keeping homes and buildings much cooler than any type of added tinting on standard windows. Hurricane windows are also made with laminated or tempered glass that is another layer of UV protection.

The frames used to make these windows also add to their resilience to hot temperatures and the sun’s intense glare. Many hurricane window frames include insulation properties that work to reduce the transfer of heat between the interior and exterior of the structure. Tight seals are also implemented to prevent air from leaking. Because of the premium quality of how hurricane windows are manufactured, there is a less frequent need for maintenance or replacement.
