Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Published on

When the frost appears in Edmonton, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very helpful at keeping the warmth in your home. Replacement windows may make a world of difference when it comes to your coziness in your home this season. They may even assist 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. Professionally installed replacement windows from Pella Windows and Doors are well-insulated and help decrease air escaping through the product and installation. Plus, the latest windows have more efficient glass options. Let’s look at some of the options you have when pondering replacement windows for your Edmonton home.

Replacement windows come in a variety of materials, and all of them can provide great insulation. When you’re contrasting replacement windows, you’ll probably 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 similar insulating qualities as wood and they’re obtainable 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 comfortable all year. 

Outside frame material, glass is a huge asset 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 maintain the heat within your home this season, and out of your house in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers have in store in Edmonton.
