Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Published on

When the frost comes in Champaign, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very helpful at maintaining the warm temperature in your home. Replacement windows can make a big impact when it comes to your comfort in your home this time of year. They may even provide aid when it comes to your energy bills too!

One of the obvious benefits of replacement windows is their aptitude to help control 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, the latest windows have more professional glass options. Let’s consider some of the options you have when deciding on replacement windows for your Champaign home.

Replacement windows come in a multitude of materials, and all of them can deliver 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® procedures in all 50 states. 

  • Wood windows offer classic beauty and wood is a useful insulator.
  • Fiberglass windows give similar insulating qualities as wood and they’re obtainable with optional foam-insulated frames to further increase energy efficiency in severe climates.
  • Vinyl windows can be the best energy-efficient of all. Air chambers inside the vinyl help reduce heat loss and sound transmission to ensure 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 in your home in the colder months, and out of your house in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers have in store in Champaign.
