Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

When the cold weather arrives in Decatur, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very good at storing the warm temperature in your home. Replacement windows may make a transformation when it comes to your comfort in your home this time of year. They may even help when it comes to your energy bills too!

One of the apparent benefits of replacement windows is their capability to help control the temperature inside your home. Skillfully installed replacement windows from Pella Windows and Doors are well-insulated and help decrease air seeping through the product and installation. Plus, newer windows have more professional glass options. Let’s consider some of the options you have when deciding on replacement windows for your Decatur home.

Replacement windows come in a variety of materials, and all of them can offer great insulation. When you’re contrasting replacement windows, you’ll most likely examine wood, fiberglass and vinyl options. All three types are available with energy-efficient options that meet or exceed ENERGY STAR® guidelines in all 50 states. 

  • Wood windows offer classic beauty and wood is a classic insulator.
  • Fiberglass windows give comparable insulating qualities as wood and they’re offered with optional foam-insulated frames to further advance energy efficiency in intense climates.
  • Vinyl windows can be the greatest energy-efficient of all. Air chambers inside the vinyl help reduce heat loss and sound transmission to ensure your home quieter and more cozy annually. 

Beyond frame material, glass is a big asset to your windows’ operation. You can buy replacement windows with double- or triple-pane glass with insulating argon between the panes. Plus, Low-E insulating glass will help keep the heat inside your home in the winter, and out of your house in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers have in store in Decatur.
