Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

When the winter arrives in Lethbridge, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very suitable at maintaining the warm temperature in your home. Replacement windows may make a big impact when it comes to your coziness in your home this season. They may even help when it comes to your energy bills too!

One of the obvious 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 decrease air escaping through the product and installation. Plus, fresher windows have more effective glass options. Let’s look at some of the selctions you have when deciding on replacement windows for your Lethbridge home.

Replacement windows come in a multitude of materials, and all of them can provide great insulation. When you’re comparing replacement windows, you’ll almost certainly examine wood, fiberglass and vinyl options. All three types are offered with energy-efficient options that meet or exceed ENERGY STAR® rules in all 50 states. 

  • Wood windows offer timeless beauty and wood is a natural insulator.
  • Fiberglass windows offer comparable 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 decrease heat loss and sound transmission to maintain your home quieter and more relaxing all year. 

Separate from frame material, glass is a huge 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 keep the heat in your home in the colder months, and outside in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers can be like in Lethbridge.
