Whether you live in the middle of the big city or out in the suburbs, acrylic window inserts are an excellent addition to your windows. At Windows Interior, we understand the benefits of interior window inserts and want to share some knowledge with you. Keep reading below to see six benefits of installing window inserts.
Great at blocking drafts
Opposite of storm windows, acrylic window inserts are installed on the inside of your house as an extra barrier for your windows. This extra layer of protection helps to protect your home from cool, drafty air getting inside your home. As well as protecting your home from outside air, your inserts will keep the air in. This means that you don’t lose air conditioning during the summer or warm air in the winter. This not only makes it easier to regulate the temperature of your home but saves you loads of money.
Sheets of acrylic are easy to manufacture and cut, so the production of acrylic window inserts is naturally going to be cheaper than glass. Because of the affordability of the material, it's much easier to stock your full house with window inserts so you get the full benefit of getting a solid seal on all of your windows.
Acrylic is an extremely durable material. You won’t have to worry about your window inserts weathering or discoloring over time. Regular maintenance will help your inserts stay as clear as glass. Additionally, acrylic doesn’t shatter. Should something like a baseball come through your window, the exterior glass might shatter, but the acrylic will not. Depending on the force of the object, the window insert might not even break. It will provide a sturdy barrier between the inside of your home and broken glass. If the acrylic does break, it will merely crack rather than make a mess on the floor beneath.
No glare or reflection
Glass windows can reflect sunlight into your home and make for less enjoyable and blinding sunsets. Acrylic doesn’t have a glare or reflection so you don’t have to worry about the way the sun hits your windows in the afternoon and evening.
Blocks outside noise
If you live in a neighborhood that has a lot of noise throughout the day, you know how much of a nuisance that can be. From the sound of kids playing outside to cars and trucks driving by, there’s often no break from the noise. You can block out the noise by installing acrylic window inserts to seal off any potential gaps around your windows.
Easy to install
One of the best parts about acrylic window inserts is that they’re easy to install. Acrylic is a flexible material and window inserts are put into an equally flexible frame. This makes installation as easy as placing the bottom of the insert into your window frame then slightly bending the insert to fit into the frame.
