Table of Contents:

In sunny Florida, we all appreciate the beautiful weather and sunshine that blesses us year-round. However, with the sunshine often comes intense heat and humidity, especially during the scorching summer months.

As homeowners in the Sunshine State, it’s crucial to invest in products that not only protect our homes but also provide comfort and energy efficiency. One such investment is thermal insulating impact glass.

In this blog, we’ll explore the thermal and insulating properties of impact glass, which go beyond just hurricane protection. We’ll shed light on how this innovative technology can help you maintain a comfortable indoor environment and save on energy bills in Florida’s challenging climate.

Understanding Thermal Insulating Impact Glass

When you think of impact glass, the first thing that probably comes to mind is its hurricane-resistant properties. While it’s true that impact glass excels at protecting your home from extreme weather conditions, it also offers a host of benefits when it comes to thermal insulation.

This unique combination of durability and insulation makes it an ideal choice for Florida homeowners looking to enhance their homes’ energy efficiency.

Thermal Insulating Impact Glass

Energy Efficiency at Its Best

Florida’s climate can be harsh, with scorching summers and occasional cold snaps in the winter. In such conditions, maintaining a comfortable indoor environment can be a challenge. This is where thermal insulating impact glass truly shines.

Its advanced construction includes multiple layers of glass with insulating gases in between, helping to create a barrier that reduces heat transfer.

The Science Behind the Innovation

Anatomy of insulated glass

Thermal insulating impact glass is designed not just to withstand the brute force of hurricanes but also to provide excellent insulation against external temperatures

This type of glass typically comprises multiple layers, including a toughened outer layer, an inner layer, and an interlayer of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) or ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA).

These layers work together to form a barrier that reduces heat transfer, maintaining a comfortable indoor environment regardless of outside temperatures.

The Benefits of Thermal Insulating Impact Glass

1. Energy Savings

By preventing heat from entering your home during hot summer days and escaping during colder nights, thermal insulating impact glass significantly reduces your reliance on air conditioning and heating systems. This translates into lower energy bills and a reduced carbon footprint.

2. Enhanced Comfort

With thermal insulating impact glass, you’ll experience a more consistent indoor temperature throughout the year. No more hot spots or drafts near your windows and doors. It’s the key to creating a cozy and comfortable living environment for your family.

3. UV Protection

In addition to thermal insulation, impact glass also provides excellent UV protection. Harmful UV rays can damage your furniture, flooring, and artwork over time. Thermal insulating impact glass blocks a significant portion of these rays, helping to preserve your interior spaces.

We bought a house last year in Hollywood and Sanctuary recently completed the whole house installation of hurricane doors and windows. I got quotes from several companies before the project. We have some unique windows that all the companies needed to charge extra for. All the quotes were in the same ballpark but I really liked the responsiveness and honest discussions from everyone at Sanctuary so I went with them. The install went smooth and we are incredibly happy with the final result. The house feels super secure now and we got a great discount on our home owners insurance. We had an issue with the inspection of our unique windows but Alex, Gannon, and the whole team went above and beyond to get the project completed at a very reasonable price. I highly recommend this company anyone. Thank you!

Alex and his team are awesome. They installed my impact sliders last year and they were efficient and easy to work with. I have had an issue come up since and the same day someone was at my house fixing the issue which is outstanding. I will continue to recommend them to my neighbors and whoever needs the services they provide.

Had 8 windows and 3 doors replaced. They did a great job and highly recommend. The windows took months but this is not something that they have control over. Alex kept his word on everything...extremely trustworthy. Thanks again!
