Published on

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

One of the apparent benefits of replacement windows is their aptitude to help adjust 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 look at some of the selctions you have when pondering replacement windows for your Grand Rapids home.

Replacement windows come in an assortment of materials, and all of them can deliver great insulation. When you’re contrasting replacement windows, you’ll most likely examine wood, fiberglass and vinyl options. All three types are available 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 offer similar insulating qualities as wood and they’re obtainable with optional foam-insulated frames to further increase energy efficiency in extreme climates.
  • Vinyl windows can be the best energy-efficient of all. Air chambers inside the vinyl help diminish heat loss and sound transmission to ensure your home quieter and more relaxing year round. 

Separate from frame material, glass is a important 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 maintain the heat inside your home this season, and outside in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers have in store in Grand Rapids.
