Replacement windows can make a big impact when it comes to your comfort in your home this season. They may even assist when it comes to your energy bills too!

One of the obvious benefits of replacement windows is their ability to help regulate the temperature inside your home. Proficiently 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 peak at some of the selctions you have when pondering replacement windows for your Washington DC home.

Replacement windows come in a multitude of materials, and all of them can offer great insulation. When you’re evaluating 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® procedures in all 50 states. 

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

Separate from frame material, glass is a huge part to your windows’ functionality. You can acquire replacement windows with double- or triple-pane glass with insulating argon between the panes. Plus, Low-E insulating glass will help preserve the heat within your home in the colder months, and outside in the summer, and we all know what winters and summers present in Washington DC.
