Please help me identify my perfect window
Hello, I currently have single pane windows and am looking to upgrade to double pane. I'm in a very moderate climate -- the San Francisco Bay Area -- so it never gets too cold or extremely hot for long periods. However, where I live it does get warm in the summer, and I have a couple windows that get direct, pounding afternoon sun that heats up the house all night making it uncomfortable during warm patches.
I have no issues with my windows with the cold weather. My home is insulated well and it's small, plus I have many windows and it's very sunny, so I really don't have to run the heater that often.
I love my sunny home, so I'm worried about the new coated windows that will reduce that bright light.
Is there a way to upgrade to double pane windows so that the heat from the afternoon sun is more bearable, but yet I still get to enjoy the sunny home I love?
Advice is very much appreciated. Thanks!
