Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

When the winter appears in Mankato, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very helpful at keeping the warm temperature in your home. Replacement windows could make a world of difference when it comes to your ease in your home this time of year. They may even provide aid when it comes to your energy bills too!

One of the clear benefits of replacement windows is their capability to help control the temperature inside your home. Proficiently installed replacement windows from Pella Windows and Doors are well-insulated and help reduce air escaping through the product and installation. Plus, fresher windows have more efficient glass options. Let’s peak at some of the selctions you have when considering replacement windows for your Mankato 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 look at wood, fiberglass and vinyl options. All three types are available with energy-efficient options that meet or exceed ENERGY STAR® rules in all 50 states. 

  • Wood windows offer timeless beauty and wood is a useful insulator.
  • Fiberglass windows give similar insulating qualities as wood and they’re available with optional foam-insulated frames to further increase energy efficiency in extreme 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 relaxing all year. 

Outside frame material, glass is a huge 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 preserve the heat in your home in the winter, and out of your house in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers have in store in Mankato.
