Glass Doctor: Keeping a Home Cool This Summer

Summer heat can sneak in home windows. Glass Doctor has tips to prep windows for summer heat.

WACO, Texas (PRWEB) June 18, 2015 - The summer months are synonymous with sun and heat. The ultimate goal to keep cool becomes a top priority. But many homeowners don’t realize that as the air conditioning is working overtime, the windows could actually be a counter-productive force acting against an actual indoor temperature cool down. has stated that as much as 30 percent of consumer energy dollars are tossed right out the window. That can add up to not only a warmer-than-ideal home, but also increased utility bills. Keeping all curtains and blinds closed during the hot, summer months is an obvious fix. Blocking the sun is certainly a way to keep out the heat. But sitting in a dark room isn’t always ideal or practical for homeowners.

Calling a glass expert to discuss window options is another way to go. A window repair or replacement can make a huge difference in regulating indoor temperature. The specialists at Glass Doctor have come up with a list of tips to help homeowners keep cool by preparing windows for summer heat.

  • Replace single-pane windows with double-pane windows.
  • Install low-e windows.
  • Apply tinting to windows.
  • Choose a tightly woven window screen.
  • Fill in air leaks by sealing cracks with caulk.
  • Install outside awnings.
