Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Published on

When the winter appears in Traverse City, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very helpful at maintaining the heat in your home. Replacement windows can make a transformation when it comes to your ease in your home this season. They may even help when it comes to your energy bills too!

One of the apparent benefits of replacement windows is their aptitude to help regulate the temperature inside your home. Skillfully installed replacement windows from Pella Windows and Doors are well-insulated and help decrease air escaping through the product and installation. Plus, the latest windows have more professional glass options. Let’s look at some of the choices you have when pondering replacement windows for your Traverse City home.

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

  • Wood windows offer timeless beauty and wood is a useful insulator.
  • Fiberglass windows offer equally great insulating qualities as wood and they’re offered with optional foam-insulated frames to further increase energy efficiency in severe climates.
  • Vinyl windows can be the best energy-efficient of all. Air chambers inside the vinyl help diminish heat loss and sound transmission to maintain your home quieter and more cozy all year. 

Separate from frame material, glass is a huge contributor 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 maintain the heat in your home in the colder months, and outside in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers present in Traverse City.
