Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

When the frost comes in Bloomington, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very good at maintaining the warm temperature in your home. Replacement windows can make a world of difference 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 apparent 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 decrease air leaking through the product and installation. Plus, the latest windows have more effective glass options. Let’s look at some of the choices you have when deciding on replacement windows for your Bloomington home.

Replacement windows come in an assortment of materials, and all of them can provide great insulation. When you’re evaluating replacement windows, you’ll probably consider 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 lasting beauty and wood is a useful insulator.
  • Fiberglass windows offer equally great insulating qualities as wood and they’re obtainable with optional foam-insulated frames to further increase energy efficiency in severe climates.
  • Vinyl windows can be the best energy-efficient of all. Air chambers inside the vinyl help reduce heat loss and sound transmission to ensure your home quieter and more comfortable year round. 

Separate from frame material, glass is a important contributor 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 in your home in the colder months, and outside in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers have in store in Bloomington.

To find out more about replacement windows and how they can allow your home to be more comfy and enhance the performance of it this time of year, call us at 309-663-7132 or stop by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom in Bloomington. We look forward to assisting you!
