Beating the Cold Weather: Making Your Windows Warmer in Winter
September 11, 2017
In the winter, insulation matters. Aside from replacing your windows, you have a few options if you’re facing drafty living rooms or frosty glass. It can be difficult to make your house warm, but a little ingenuity goes a long way. Keyprime Roofing and Remodeling offers several window options, and each utilizes the high-quality materials needed to deflect the cold.
Option One: Vinyl Windows
Both durable and energy-efficient, vinyl windows are great for insulating a household. Vinyl is one of the most popular materials used in the window industry today, and for good reason. Obtainable at a moderate price, highly durable and capable of trapping air within a honeycomb chamber design, vinyl windows are perfect for hot and cold weather. Vinyl windows can be built to fit any size of opening, so you can replace old, worn-out windows with vinyl options if you’re losing heat during winter.
Option Two: Aluminum Windows
A great option for elegance and performance, aluminum windows are being used in modern homes to deflect the cold. They’ve been available since the 1950s, but modern aluminum windows have been reinforced to keep a home’s heat where it belongs. You have a lot of aesthetics to choose from, too, so your home needn’t lose its awesome look as you pursue energy efficient options. Many classic aluminum window lines maintain constant temperatures, ensuring your glass stays frost-free when the weather gets cold.
Option Three: Wood Windows
Wood windows aren’t only useful for insulation, they’re also strong and beautiful. Their great energy efficiency can be enhanced by covering them with aluminum of vinyl. Because wooden windows require little maintenance, they’re great picks for large households. You can paint and stain wooden windows, too, giving your energy efficient installation more personality.
