Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

When the winter comes in Rochester, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very helpful at storing the warmth in your home. Replacement windows can make a big impact when it comes to your ease in your home this season. 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 control the temperature inside your home. Skillfully installed replacement windows from Pella Windows and Doors are well-insulated and help reduce air escaping through the product and installation. Plus, newer windows have more efficient glass options. Let’s peak at some of the options you have when deciding on replacement windows for your Rochester home.

Replacement windows come in a variety of materials, and all of them can deliver great insulation. When you’re contrasting 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® guidelines in all 50 states. 

  • Wood windows offer classic beauty and wood is a useful insulator.
  • Fiberglass windows offer comparable insulating qualities as wood and they’re available with optional foam-insulated frames to further advance energy efficiency in extreme 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 relaxing year round. 

Separate from frame material, glass is a big asset to your windows’ performance. 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 within your home this season, and outdoors in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers have in store in Rochester.

To find out more about replacement windows and how they can make your home to be more cozy and boost the performance of it this season, call us at 507-847-1060 or stop by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom in Rochester. We look forward to helping you!
