When hurricane windows came about, many people were skeptical. And we can't say we blame them. The hurricane shutters and slabs of other materials people have used in the past completely covered up the window and gave people some peace of mind during a storm. However after years, we’ve found that doing this may not be as safe as the hurricane windows in Boynton Beach, but it felt that way. For one, the windows were completely covered, allowing for nothing to get inside. And second, this method of protection has worked in the past so we were comfortable with it.  

Why change the way we protect our homes now? 

With technology advancing the way it has, we now have hurricane windows that offer as much protection, if not more, than the traditional methods of protection. With that in mind, we’ve listed five facts about hurricane windows in Boynton Beach.

  1. Hurricane Windows are Hurricane Resistant

It's important to remember that these windows are hurricane resistant, not hurricane proof. They can protect against some of the most aggressive wind speeds. However, that doesn't mean that they are impossible to break or damage. If an item goes flying into the window, it may cause some damage, even if it's a small shatter or crack. With that said, these windows still provide an immense amount of protection and are one of the best ways to protect your home.

  1. Hurricane Windows Can Reduce HVAC System Usage

Hurricane protection isn't the only thing these windows can help out with. Turns out that they can also reduce how hard your HVAC system works! The way these windows are designed allows them to block out a lot of the UV rays that come in. This in turn can make your home cooler in the Florida heat. Some people even report spending less on their monthly energy bills when they get hurricane windows installed.

  1. Hurricane Windows Are Not as Costly as You Think

There seems to be a misconception that these windows cost an arm and a leg to purchase. But the reality is that it all depends on your home, how many windows you want to have done, and the size of your windows. The price varies greatly from home to home. Some people spend tens of thousands of dollars and have tons of windows. While others spend less to get a few windows done.
