We all want greener more energy efficient homes, but are there other benefits to installing Resistance Glass System windows? Absolutely. Here’s what our customers love most about them: 


Comfort in Winter
Have you noticed it’s too chilly and drafty to stand near most windows in winter? That’s because the surface of conventional glass gets very cold, creating a zone of low temperature air that slowly drops to your floor. The rotation creates an unpleasant current that feels like a draft, even when your windows are closed. Resistance Glass System windows have a sealed cavity between separate panes, and they stop cold air more effectively than walls filled with fiberglass insulation. The glass also reflects more infrared heat from your home back inside, so you can watch the snowfall without a shiver.

Comfort in Summer
In summer, are you tempted to close the drapes to keep certain rooms in your home from feeling like an oven? That happens when conventional windows allow unwanted UV light to pass through freely, overheating your home. The good news is you don’t have to close the shades or use unsightly tinted film. The patented design of Resistance Glass System will allow visible light waves in while filtering more UV rays out. The result is a cool sunny room. It’s just the way summer should be.

No Moisture Allowed In
Have you noticed your windows become damp, especially near the edges? That moisture is not just unpleasant; it can cause real damage to your drapes and encourage mold growth. Since Resistance Glass System windows have a sealed dry space between two panes, your home stays dry too.

Protects Valuables
Do you have family photos and artwork near your windows? UV light passing through will bleach them over time, along with upholstery and rugs. The Resistance Glass System minimizes UV light to reduce fading of the treasured things that make your home special.

The benefits of replacing conventional windows with the Resistance Glass System windows go far beyond greener living, and we'd be happy to help you evaluate whether it's the right step for you.

I have been in the window business here in Tampa for decades now and it's really important to choose windows based on where you live. In our area we never want solar heat gain. You do. A company that understands this will really help their customers!
