The temperatures outside are warming up. Is your home, or certain rooms, getting a bit too hot for comfort? You can increase your house’s energy efficiency, and in turn keep your house cool during hot days, by investing in custom windows. Here are a few things to think about when determining your next custom window purchase.
Choose Energy Efficient Windows
When you design your custom window, be sure to work with materials that are as energy efficient as possible. If you aren’t sure about energy efficient options, be sure to talk to your Rusco consultant to hear about your choices and the benefits that go along with them.
Focus on Installation
Your custom window should be installed professionally in order to make sure there are no leaks that could cause drafts in the long or short term. When you work with the Rusco team, you can breathe a sigh of relief and have the peace of mind that we will do our best work at your home.
Choose a Good Location
If you find certain rooms are simply too hot due to sun exposure, you might consider a custom window on a different side of your house instead. Your house’s exposure to the bright sun can vary by your location, so be sure to talk with your Rusco design consultant to get your best options.
Block It Out
One of the best ways to cool off a room in the hot summer sun is to eliminate the sun shining into the space. While you can easily do this with shades or curtains you purchase after your window is installed, most of our Rusco clients choose a custom window that already has shades encased between the panes of glass. Not only is this option beautiful, but it also offers quick and easy adjustment throughout the day as your family needs it.
