During the warm summer months, solar heat gain from your windows causes the temperature inside your home to rise. This translates into more money spent running your air conditioner to cool your home. This video gives tips on how to minimize heat gain from your windows to keep your home cooler. Replacing older windows with a double-pane, double hung window will lower the amount of heat entering your home. You can also install a solar screen or touch up the caulking and weather stripping to reduce the light and heat that enters through the window.
