Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Published on

When the cold weather arrives in Albany, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very helpful at keeping the warm temperature in your home. Replacement windows could make a transformation when it comes to your ease 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 regulate the temperature inside your home. Skillfully installed replacement windows from Pella Windows and Doors are well-insulated and help lessen air leaking through the product and installation. Plus, fresher windows have more efficient glass options. Let’s peak at some of the choices you have when considering replacement windows for your Albany 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 most likely consider 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 offer similar 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 most energy-efficient of all. Air chambers inside the vinyl help reduce heat loss and sound transmission to keep your home quieter and more comfortable year round. 

Outside frame material, glass is a big contributor to your windows’ operation. 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 inside your home in the winter, and outdoors in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers can be like in Albany.
