Impact windows in Palm Beach county are an important commodity.  In fact, it cannot be understated.  Purchasing impact windows for your Palm Beach home can feel like a huge endeavor.  We understand you are on a budget and may or may not have a family to support.  Hurricane Impact windows keep your family safe through out Palm Beach’s most treacherous storms.  In addition, have you learned of the benefits of our hurricane impact windows?  Here are some below.

BENEFITS OF IMPACT WINDOWS

ENERGY SAVINGS

Due to the fact that impact windows technology use thick, multi-layered hurricane resistant glass, they also keep your home well insolated.  That means they keep the hot air out in the sweltering palm beach summer.  And you guessed it, they keep the warm air in during the brief winter season.  What this does, aside from ad to the comfort of your home is help you save drastically on your energy bill.  To read more about energy savings, check out our page about it.

REAL ESTATE VALUE

Regardless if you are looking to sell or your home now or later, it is always a good idea to have it indexed at a higher value.  The purchase of hurricane impact windows for your Palm Beach home is never a bad idea.  Especially with our 100% financing options.  See if you qualify!

HURRICANE PROTECTION

Well this might be stating the obvious, but impact windows protect you and your family from hurricanes like no other.  One of the biggest dangers during hurricanes, especially in Palm Beach are projectiles.  Palm Beach hurricanes have the tendency to get so powerful, they can launch trees and other projectiles and hurl them into homes and automobiles.  This turns the projectile into what can effectively be called a missile.  To learn more about the missile test and how our Palm Beach impact windows make the cut, go to our hurricane protection page.

PALM BEACH HURRICANE SEASON

South Florida is the hurricane capital of the United States.  Palm Beach’s hurricane season lasts about half of the calendar year and no other state has been devastated by as many hurricanes.

BEFORE IMPACT WINDOWS

Traditional methods of hurricane protection in Palm Beach included boarding up windows with plyboard and other materials.  They offered very little protection and are a hassle to install and remove. Metal hurricane shutters offer more protection than plyboard but they are even more tedious to install and remove. Accordion shutters are fairly simple to use once in place but they still have to be installed and affect the look of a property.  As a result, homes by the ocean in Palm Beach and Broward counties used to see devastating damages from even minor hurricanes and tropical storms.  Bigger buildings and skyscrapers experienced similar fates.  As hurricane mpact windows have become more popular, the damages done to these structures have decreased.  Although no hurricane should be taken lightly, only bigger storms are a concern to homeowners with hurricane impact windows installed.

Our hurricane impact windows offer protection from even the most severe hurricanes that Palm Beach can throw at them with none of the shortcomings or disadvantages of plyboard and shutters.

Many variables come into play when effectively comparing the various types of hurricane impact windows.  The state of Florida dictates the codes for impact strength of impact resistant windows.  But, it is actually the frame materials and energy efficiency is what sets the different types of windows apart.  The Window Experts offer high quality, low thermal transference vinyl frame windows and doors.  Our Impact Windows come equipped with Pro Solar Shade and trade glass for the highest energy efficiency available.

Energy Loss Through Various Materials

​The chart below shows the thermal conductivity of various materials used in hurricane window frames. As the graph shows, aluminum which is used by many window manufacturers for Florida has the highest energy loss. And while wood is slightly lower than vinyl, it is not practical in Florida installations as wood frames are subject to termites and rot.

Double-Glazed with Impact Windows with Pro Solar Shade Glass

These windows are often referred to as spectrally selective low-E glass.  This is due to their ability to reduce solar heat gain while retaining high visible transmittance.  Compared to most tinted and reflective glazings, low-E glass provide a higher level of visible light transmission for a given amount of solar heat reduction.

The very high reflective properties of hurricane Impact Windows with Pro Solar Shade Glass reduce the cost of air-conditioning by suppressing radiative heat flow. As a result, hurricane impact windows pay for themselves over time.   This is considered a very good return on investment.

Impact Windows with Pro Solar Shade Glass with Turtle Tint

Variants on low-solar-gain low-E coatings have also been developed, which may appear slightly tinted. This type of low-E product reduces heat loss in winter and substantially reduces solar heat gain both in winter and in summer.  As a result, low-solar-gain low-E glazings are ideal for buildings located in cooling-dominated climates.
​Low-solar-gain low-E glass is typically made with sputtered low-E coatings.  These consist of either two or three layers of silver (also called double-silver or triple-silver low-E).  Hurricane Impact Windows with Pro Solar Shade Glass are a triple-silver low-E-Plus. The Plus comes from extra components within the glass that make all other low-E glass obsolete in Palm Beach’s tropical sun and heat.
