The city of Whittier California is one of the Gateway cities in Southern California. The city sits on just under 15 square miles of land, and there are currently over 85,000 people living in Whittier. The city was named after the famous poet John Greenleaf Whittier, and it is also home to Whittier College. The city was settled in 1887, and then it was incorporated in February of 1898.
In the late 1880s the Southern Pacific Railroad built the first stretch of railroad into Whittier. This helped fuel the local economy, and the result was a population boom. There were other results as well. The first commercial enterprise was said to be a direct result of the railroad. A Cannery was built, and then a lumber mill soon followed. Today, the Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital is the number one employer in the area.
Southern California has some really great weather, and the city of Whittier is no different. There are only a couple of months during the Summer where the temperature rises above 90 degrees. The Winter is mild as well with temperatures never really dipping below the lower 30s.
Even though the warm Summer months don’t get that hot, they are still the months where citizens use the most energy resources. Southern California Edison, the company that provides the city of Whittier with its electricity has created a Summer awareness program to help residents of Whittier keep their energy bills lower. Metropolitan High Performance Windows has some solutions too.
- Replacement Windows – Your windows may be letting in all of the great sunlight that we all love, but your windows are also letting in loads of heat. Older style windows are extremely inefficient when it comes to insulating your home from the heat outside. Your windows can be responsible for as much as 70% of the heat that is generated in your home. Our replacement windows can help you lower the amount of heat that comes into your home. Each window has a layer of Argon gas that sits between two panes of glass. This Argon gas keeps the heat out.
