Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Published on

When the winter appears in Peoria, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very helpful at storing the heat in your home. Replacement windows may make a big impact when it comes to your ease in your home this season. They may even assist when it comes to your energy bills too!

One of the clear benefits of replacement windows is their capability to help control the temperature inside your home. Professionally installed replacement windows from Pella Windows and Doors are well-insulated and help reduce air escaping through the product and installation. Plus, fresher windows have more efficient glass options. Let’s look at some of the choices you have when pondering replacement windows for your Peoria home.

Replacement windows come in a variety of materials, and all of them can provide great insulation. When you’re evaluating replacement windows, you’ll most likely examine wood, fiberglass and vinyl options. All three types are offered 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 give equally great insulating qualities as wood and they’re available with optional foam-insulated frames to further increase energy efficiency in intense climates.
  • Vinyl windows can be the greatest energy-efficient of all. Air chambers inside the vinyl help diminish heat loss and sound transmission to keep your home quieter and more cozy year round. 

Separate from frame material, glass is a important asset 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 maintain the heat in your home in the winter, and out of your house in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers present in Peoria.
