Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

When the cold weather appears in South Portland, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very suitable at maintaining the heat in your home. Replacement windows can make a transformation when it comes to your comfort in your home this winter. They may even help when it comes to your energy bills too!

One of the clear 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 lessen air seeping through the product and installation. Plus, newer windows have more effective glass options. Let’s consider some of the choices you have when deciding on replacement windows for your South Portland 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 obtainable with energy-efficient options that meet or exceed ENERGY STAR® rules in all 50 states. 

  • Wood windows offer classic beauty and wood is a natural insulator.
  • Fiberglass windows propose 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 most energy-efficient of all. Air chambers inside the vinyl help diminish heat loss and sound transmission to maintain your home quieter and more comfortable year round. 

Beyond frame material, glass is a huge part to your windows’ functionality. 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 this season, and outdoors in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers can be like in South Portland.

To find out more about replacement windows and how they can make your home to be more cozy and enhance the performance of it this time of year, call us at 207-517-2331 or stop by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom in South Portland. We look forward to serving you!
