Bombardment of UV Rays
replacement windows colorado
The air space temperature that is inside the insulating glass unit of your window, is directly influenced by the solar radiation striking the glass. As the air space temperature heats up, the internal pressure increases. As the air space temperature goes down, the internal unit pressure goes down.
Colorado's sun is so powerful, when the clouds cover the sun, the temperature can suddenly drop 25 degrees, and then jump back up again when the sun reappears. The resulting pressure changes can wreak havoc on your new windows.
Not only is the glass affected by the sun, but the frame of the window can warp, fade, or discolor from the suns intense UV rays.
Therefore it is necessary for a window to be specifically designed and built to handle these atmospheric conditions properly.
