Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

When the frost comes in Raleigh, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very helpful at storing the heat in your home. Replacement windows may make a world of difference when it comes to your coziness 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 ability to help adjust the temperature inside your home. Professionally installed replacement windows from Pella Windows and Doors are well-insulated and help decrease air seeping through the product and installation. Plus, the latest windows have more professional glass options. Let’s peak at some of the choices you have when pondering replacement windows for your Raleigh home.

Replacement windows come in a multitude of materials, and all of them can offer great insulation. When you’re evaluating replacement windows, you’ll almost certainly 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 offer equally great 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 diminish heat loss and sound transmission to ensure your home quieter and more cozy year round. 

Outside frame material, glass is a important part to your windows’ performance. You can acquire replacement windows with double- or triple-pane glass with insulating argon between the panes. Plus, Low-E insulating glass will help preserve the heat in your home in the colder months, and outdoors in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers can be like in Raleigh.
