Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

When the cold weather appears in St. Paul, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very good at keeping the heat in your home. Replacement windows can 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 obvious benefits of replacement windows is their aptitude to help regulate the temperature inside your home. Skillfully installed replacement windows from Pella Windows and Doors are well-insulated and help reduce air escaping through the product and installation. Plus, newer windows have more professional glass options. Let’s consider some of the options you have when deciding on replacement windows for your St. Paul home.

Replacement windows come in an assortment of materials, and all of them can provide great insulation. When you’re contrasting replacement windows, you’ll almost certainly look at 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 improve energy efficiency in severe climates.
  • Vinyl windows can be the greatest energy-efficient of all. Air chambers inside the vinyl help reduce heat loss and sound transmission to maintain your home quieter and more comfortable annually. 

Outside frame material, glass is a huge part to your windows’ performance. You can buy replacement windows with double- or triple-pane glass with insulating argon between the panes. Plus, Low-E insulating glass will help keep the heat inside 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 St. Paul.
