Warm-Climate Window Tips

  • In the summertime, the sun shining through your windows heats up the room. Windows with spectrally selective coatings on the glass reflect some of the sunlight, keeping your rooms cooler.

  • Install white window shades, drapes, or blinds to reflect heat away from the house.

  • Close curtains on south- and west-facing windows during the day.

  • Install awnings on south- and west-facing windows.

  • Apply sun-control or other reflective films on south-facing windows to reduce solar gain.
