Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Published on

When the cold weather comes in Wilmington, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very good at storing the heat in your home. Replacement windows can make a world of difference when it comes to your comfort in your home this season. They may even provide aid when it comes to your energy bills too!

One of the apparent benefits of replacement windows is their ability to help regulate the temperature inside your home. Skillfully installed replacement windows from Pella Windows and Doors are well-insulated and help lessen air seeping through the product and installation. Plus, fresher windows have more efficient glass options. Let’s consider some of the options you have when pondering replacement windows for your Wilmington home.

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

  • Wood windows offer classic beauty and wood is a useful insulator.
  • Fiberglass windows give comparable insulating qualities as wood and they’re available with optional foam-insulated frames to further increase energy efficiency in intense climates.
  • Vinyl windows can be the most energy-efficient of all. Air chambers inside the vinyl help decrease heat loss and sound transmission to maintain your home quieter and more cozy year round. 

Separate from frame material, glass is a big 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 inside your home in the colder months, and outside in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers present in Wilmington.
