Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Published on

When the frost appears in Roanoke, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very suitable at maintaining the warmth in your home. Replacement windows may make a big impact when it comes to your ease 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 control the temperature inside your home. Professionally installed replacement windows from Pella Windows and Doors are well-insulated and help lessen air escaping through the product and installation. Plus, newer windows have more professional glass options. Let’s peak at some of the options you have when deciding on replacement windows for your Roanoke home.

Replacement windows come in a multitude of materials, and all of them can provide great insulation. When you’re contrasting replacement windows, you’ll probably look at 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 timeless beauty and wood is a natural insulator.
  • Fiberglass windows give 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 greatest energy-efficient of all. Air chambers inside the vinyl help decrease heat loss and sound transmission to keep your home quieter and more comfortable year round. 

Beyond frame material, glass is a huge part 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 within your home in the winter, and outdoors in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers can be like in Roanoke.
