Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Published on

When the cold weather comes in Baltimore, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very good at storing the warmth 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 help when it comes to your energy bills too!

One of the apparent benefits of replacement windows is their capability to help adjust the temperature inside your home. Skillfully installed replacement windows from Pella Windows and Doors are well-insulated and help lessen air escaping through the product and installation. Plus, newer windows have more professional glass options. Let’s look at some of the options you have when pondering replacement windows for your Baltimore 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 almost certainly look at wood, fiberglass and vinyl options. All three types are available with energy-efficient options that meet or exceed ENERGY STAR® guidelines in all 50 states. 

  • Wood windows offer classic beauty and wood is a natural insulator.
  • Fiberglass windows give 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 best energy-efficient of all. Air chambers inside the vinyl help decrease heat loss and sound transmission to maintain your home quieter and more comfortable annually. 

Beyond frame material, glass is a huge part 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 preserve the heat inside your home in the winter, and outdoors in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers have in store in Baltimore.
