Oklahomans are familiar with the ever-changing weather in our state. Some days you’ll want to turn off the air conditioning and keep your windows open, and other days you’ll want them shut as tightly as possible to ward off ice and snow. For this reason, it is important to consider a number of factors when deciding which windows to choose for your Oklahoma home.
Windows with Screens
Windows with screens are extremely popular for Oklahoma homes. Oklahoma is where the “wind comes sweeping down the plain,” and with that wind comes dust, dirt and other debris. The humid climate in Oklahoma also fosters an environment for many bugs, spiders, and other critters you don’t want coming into your home.
At the same time, that Oklahoma wind can be pleasant and refreshing and you may want to enjoy days with your windows open. Windows with screens make practical sense for anyone wanting the option to let fresh air in and keep nature out.
Choosing an efficient window frame is also important. The mercurial Oklahoma weather, which can change from hot to cold in a matter of hours, can damage wooden frames. Quick weather changes cause wooden frames to expand and contract quickly, leading to ongoing maintenance that can be costly and time-consuming
Vinyl windows are the most popular and efficient choice for windows. They require little to no maintenance, which is a huge plus when the seasons change. Modern technology has also made virtually any color or finish available for vinyl windows.
Investing in energy efficient windows is one of the best ways you can save money. Most energy-efficient windows are double insulated, double weather-stripped, and double paned. This keeps your home sealed so the indoor temperature isn’t affected by the weather. You can also earn a tax credit by installing energy-efficient windows.
