Older Windows and Arizona’s Summer Heat

If you’ve lived in the Tucson area for a few years, you know pretty well that summers around here can be rough! And if you are new to the area, you’ll learn quickly! With triple-digit temperatures averaging almost  60 days in Tucson, outdoor activities can be unpleasant this time of the year. Unfortunately, for some homeowners, spending times indoors can be just as uncomfortable! Old, drafty windows and doors might be more obvious in the cold winter months but they are just as ineffective during the hot summer months and can make your home as unpleasant.

As the temperatures continue to rise, the structural integrity of older windows begins to weaken, as will their performance over time. With the extreme heat, expansion will begin to occur between the glass and the frame of the window creating air leaks, broken windows seal, condensation and more. This of course results in an uncomfortable home environment, lowered energy efficient and higher utility bills.

DSCN499015-year-old windows were simply not made with the same technology that is available to us today; they weren’t built to withstand our Arizona climate.

    I really find this article very interesting. Replacement windows are indeed so great and beneficial especially when it comes to energy conservation, but I think, every home owner must know these necessary pieces information in order to find the most perfect replacement windows ever that suit one’s needs.
