San Diego, CA
Because of San Diego’s mild climate, air conditioning and heating devices are not used as much as in other cities in the United States, and this results in a low energy bill. Purchasing new energy efficient windows in an area like San Diego can dramatically decrease your already low energy bill, and may even save you up to a third of your energy bill costs. Another factor from living near the coast is the unique challenge of salt air and sea spray. Salt air and sea spray can be carried by wind and penetrate cheap or old windows, ruining the windows and corroding them. Replacing your old windows will help you save money on your energy bill, while simultaneously protecting your property from damaging and corrosive ocean minerals.
Whether you’re replacing your windows due to damaged windows, or simply to update your home, then there are several features that you will want in a window that are unique to the San Diego area. Look for triple-glazed glass, low-solar-gain low-E glass, Krypton or Argon gas in between the glass panes, along with a non-metal frame. Due to the San Diego area being near the ocean, Thermally Improved vinyl or fiberglass is the best choice, as they are not affected by the corrosive effects of the sea water. Aluminum frames are generally not advised for the San Diego area because they are susceptible to corrosion, some window installers may carry stainless steel, which is more resistant to corrosion then aluminum.
