Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Published on

When the cold weather appears in Calgary, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very suitable at maintaining the warmth in your home. Replacement windows could make a transformation when it comes to your comfort in your home this time of year. They may even provide aid when it comes to your energy bills too!

One of the apparent benefits of replacement windows is their ability to help regulate the temperature inside your home. Professionally installed replacement windows from Pella Windows and Doors are well-insulated and help lessen air leaking through the product and installation. Plus, the latest windows have more efficient glass options. Let’s peak at some of the options you have when deciding on replacement windows for your Calgary home.

Replacement windows come in a variety of materials, and all of them can offer great insulation. When you’re contrasting replacement windows, you’ll almost certainly examine wood, fiberglass and vinyl options. All three types are obtainable with energy-efficient options that meet or exceed ENERGY STAR® guidelines in all 50 states. 

  • Wood windows offer lasting beauty and wood is a classic insulator.
  • Fiberglass windows propose comparable insulating qualities as wood and they’re available with optional foam-insulated frames to further advance energy efficiency in severe climates.
  • Vinyl windows can be the most energy-efficient of all. Air chambers inside the vinyl help reduce heat loss and sound transmission to ensure your home quieter and more comfortable annually. 

Beyond frame material, glass is a big asset to your windows’ functionality. You can purchase replacement windows with double- or triple-pane glass with insulating argon between the panes. Plus, Low-E insulating glass will help keep the heat inside your home this season, and outside in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers present in Calgary.
