Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Published on

When the winter appears in Des Moines, 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 coziness in your home this winter. They may even help when it comes to your energy bills too!

One of the obvious benefits of replacement windows is their capability to help regulate the temperature inside your home. Professionally installed replacement windows from Pella Windows and Doors are well-insulated and help decrease air seeping through the product and installation. Plus, the latest windows have more professional glass options. Let’s look at some of the options you have when considering replacement windows for your Des Moines home.

Replacement windows come in an assortment of materials, and all of them can offer great insulation. When you’re evaluating replacement windows, you’ll most likely consider wood, fiberglass and vinyl options. All three types are offered with energy-efficient options that meet or exceed ENERGY STAR® rules in all 50 states. 

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

Separate from frame material, glass is a important asset to your windows’ performance. You can acquire replacement windows with double- or triple-pane glass with insulating argon between the panes. Plus, Low-E insulating glass will help keep the heat in your home in the colder months, and out of your house in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers can be like in Des Moines.
