Prepare Your Windows for Safety This Summer

June 17, 2014

shutterstock_134872523With summer knocking on your front door, many people are ecstatic to be able to finally lay back, relax, and enjoy the summer sun. Some people are buying the right food to make for the perfect outdoor barbeque, while others may be busy picking out the perfect spot on the beach. What everyone wants to make sure of, however, is that we all have a safe and fun summer. Many people may not know this, but safety involves many things, including your windows. Here at Southern Shutters, we want to make sure you are able to enjoy your summer safely, so we have a few window safety tips for you to make that possible!

One of the most important things in window safety is making sure that nothing is blocking or preventing window from opening. This way, during an emergency, you will be able to exit your home quickly and efficiently. Another important tip is to make sure that no furniture, or anything that a child can climb, is near a window. Then, you are not only able to protect yourself, but your entire family, even the littlest of members!

Do not fully rely on insect screens to prevent your little one from falling through the window. Insect screens are used for ventilation, not child protection. Making sure your windows are not painted or nailed shut during spring repairs is another really important safety tip. Though it may not seem like a lot, these few, yet important, tips will ensure your family’s safety and fun this summer season!

Make Your Windows More Energy Efficient

Now that spring is here and the weather is warming up, it may be time to put your air conditioners back on and jump into the pool to cool down. When you’re inside, though, it is important to make sure that your home stays as cool as possible, as to not waste any valuable air or any of your valuable money. Making sure your home is energy efficient is important, and we want to give you a few tips in order to make that happen.

One thing you can do to make your home more energy efficient is to clean the glass on your windows, as well as the window’s surroundings. One way to do this that is also friendly to the earth is to use one part vinegar and four parts water, and clean your windows with a sponge.  Another way to be more energy efficient is to caulk all the gaps and cracks your window may have. This is an excellent way to make sure that the cool air stays in, and the warm air stays out.

Investing in heavy curtains is another excellent way to make your home more energy efficient when it comes to your windows. To keep it green and relatively low cost, you can find some second-hand curtains, and remember to make sure the fall a good length below the window, preferably down to the floor. Make sure you draw the curtains whenever you are not in the room, as this is an excellent way to make sure that the cool air stays in and warm air stays out.

Making sure your home and windows are energy efficient is a wonderful way to save yourself a lot of money and hassle during these warmer months! We hope these tips have helped, and that you are able to execute them in a way that changes your home for the better!
