Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Published on

When the winter comes in Springfield, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very suitable at storing the warm temperature in your home. Replacement windows can make a transformation when it comes to your comfort in your home this winter. They may even provide aid when it comes to your energy bills too!

One of the obvious benefits of replacement windows is their ability to help control the temperature inside your home. Skillfully installed replacement windows from Pella Windows and Doors are well-insulated and help decrease air leaking through the product and installation. Plus, newer windows have more professional glass options. Let’s peak at some of the options you have when considering replacement windows for your Springfield home.

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

  • Wood windows offer classic beauty and wood is a classic insulator.
  • Fiberglass windows offer comparable insulating qualities as wood and they’re available with optional foam-insulated frames to further improve energy efficiency in extreme climates.
  • Vinyl windows can be the best energy-efficient of all. Air chambers inside the vinyl help reduce heat loss and sound transmission to keep your home quieter and more comfortable all year. 

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