Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Published on

When the cold weather arrives in Ketchum, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very good at keeping the heat in your home. Replacement windows may make a big impact when it comes to your ease in your home this winter. They may even help when it comes to your energy bills too!

One of the apparent benefits of replacement windows is their ability to help control the temperature inside your home. Proficiently installed replacement windows from Pella Windows and Doors are well-insulated and help decrease air leaking through the product and installation. Plus, fresher windows have more effective glass options. Let’s consider some of the options you have when pondering replacement windows for your Ketchum home.

Replacement windows come in a multitude of materials, and all of them can deliver great insulation. When you’re evaluating replacement windows, you’ll almost certainly 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 classic beauty and wood is a useful insulator.
  • Fiberglass windows give comparable insulating qualities as wood and they’re obtainable with optional foam-insulated frames to further improve energy efficiency in intense climates.
  • Vinyl windows can be the most energy-efficient of all. Air chambers inside the vinyl help decrease heat loss and sound transmission to ensure your home quieter and more cozy annually. 

Beyond frame material, glass is a important part to your windows’ operation. 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 in your home in the colder months, and outside in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers present in Ketchum.
