Use Your Windows to Stay Comfortable This Winter

Published on

When the cold weather comes in Baton Rouge, the last thing you need is drafty windows, windows that just aren’t very good at storing the heat in your home. Replacement windows can make a world of difference when it comes to your ease in your home this time of year. They may even help 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 decrease air leaking through the product and installation. Plus, the latest windows have more effective glass options. Let’s look at some of the selctions you have when deciding on replacement windows for your Baton Rouge home.

Replacement windows come in a variety of materials, and all of them can provide great insulation. When you’re contrasting replacement windows, you’ll most likely examine 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 timeless beauty and wood is a natural insulator.
  • Fiberglass windows offer comparable insulating qualities as wood and they’re obtainable with optional foam-insulated frames to further improve energy efficiency in extreme climates.
  • Vinyl windows can be the greatest energy-efficient of all. Air chambers inside the vinyl help decrease heat loss and sound transmission to maintain your home quieter and more comfortable annually. 

Separate from frame material, glass is a big part to your windows’ operation. 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 in your home this season, and out of your house in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers present in Baton Rouge.
