Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Published on

When the cold weather comes in North Carolina, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very good at maintaining the warmth in your home. Replacement windows may make a world of difference when it comes to your ease in your home this season. They may even assist when it comes to your energy bills too!

One of the apparent benefits of replacement windows is their ability to help control the temperature inside your home. Skillfully installed replacement windows from Pella are well-insulated and help reduce air escaping through the product and installation. Plus, the latest windows have more efficient glass options. Let’s consider some of the options you have when pondering replacement windows for your North Carolina home.

Replacement windows come in an assortment of materials, and all of them can offer great insulation. When you’re comparing replacement windows, you’ll most likely look at wood, fiberglass and vinyl options. All three types are obtainable 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 propose similar insulating qualities as wood and they’re available with optional foam-insulated frames to further improve 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 ensure your home quieter and more relaxing year round. 

Beyond frame material, glass is a important contributor to your windows’ functionality. You can purchase replacement windows with double- or triple-pane glass with insulating argon between the panes. Plus, Low-E insulating glass will help preserve the heat inside your home in the winter, and out of your house in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers can be like in North Carolina.
