Acrylic Windows on porch - should you air condition the space
We have a porch that is open on one side. We were going to have acrylic windows (not glass, not vinyl) installed. We were planning to leave the sliding glass door open from the house onto the porch so that air or heat would flow out there. BUT I have been told by an air conditioning company and by one company that sells acrylic windows that I do not want to put acrylic windows out there. They said they are not energy efficient. We are in the hot, humid South. Does anyone have experience in such a climate with acrylic windows? Our electric bill is high enough. We see that they sell alot of these windows down here in Florida.
