Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Published on

When the frost appears in Cape Cod, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very good at maintaining the warmth in your home. Replacement windows could 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 aptitude to help regulate the temperature inside your home. Professionally installed replacement windows from Pella Windows and Doors are well-insulated and help lessen air leaking through the product and installation. Plus, newer windows have more effective glass options. Let’s peak at some of the options you have when considering replacement windows for your Cape Cod home.

Replacement windows come in a variety of materials, and all of them can offer great insulation. When you’re comparing replacement windows, you’ll probably examine 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 classic insulator.
  • Fiberglass windows offer similar insulating qualities as wood and they’re available with optional foam-insulated frames to further increase energy efficiency in extreme climates.
  • Vinyl windows can be the most energy-efficient of all. Air chambers inside the vinyl help reduce heat loss and sound transmission to keep your home quieter and more comfortable all year. 

Separate from frame material, glass is a important asset 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 maintain the heat inside your home in the winter, and outside in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers can be like in Cape Cod.
