The summer months are here and few things are more enjoyable than the days you’re able to open up the windows and enjoy the summer breeze. On the days the humidity and temperatures are too high to crack the windows it’s important to consider the best windows for cooling your home. Believe it or not, when windows are created they have the ability to measure the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient.

Even if you happen to live in cooler/colder climates, these windows with a higher Solar Heat Gain Coefficient can help you reap the benefits of solar radiation, which helps the workload of your furnace.
