The chilly winter months are coming. Although it’s exciting to think about fun outdoor activities that you can do this season, keeping your family comfortable inside your home should also be one of your priorities.
The question to ask yourself is “How can I keep my family warm this winter?”
You can upgrade your fireplace and gather your family around it for an entertaining nighttime story. In addition, you can prepare everyone’s favorite warm drink to make them cozy. These things, however, only offer temporary comfort during the cold months. To stay warm this winter and comfortable all year round, it’s best to find a long-term solution.
For many homeowners, getting replacement windows is a cost-effective option. Take down your old and damaged windows and replace them with energy-efficient ones. When choosing a replacement, consider the material, insulating properties, and installation process followed by a Kansas City window contractor. All these are key components to keeping your family comfortable throughout the year.
Double-pane windows are popular replacement windows because of their good insulating properties. The construction of many double-pane windows helps minimize heat transfer, which reduces the risk of heat escaping through the glass. This allows you to maximize the heat circulating around your home.
Renewal by Andersen® understands that comfort and security are the top priorities of many homeowners. This is why we offer replacement windows with High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass options and Fibrex® frames. They provide optimum thermal resistance that can keep your home comfortable not just in winter but in other seasons as well.
Low-E coating helps manage the temperature inside your home as it allows light to pass while blocking and reflecting heat back to the source. In winter, heat is reflected back into the house, preventing it from escaping through the windows. In summer, heat is reflected back into the surroundings, keeping it from passing through the glass and warming up your house.
Fibrex insulates about 700 times better than frames made of aluminum. Unlike other materials, it expands and contracts very little in extreme temperatures. The material efficiently prevents air gaps from forming, which can affect the comfort level in your home.
Stay comfortable this winter and all year round by replacing old, damaged, and inefficient windows. Having the right type of replacement windows made from materials that can withstand extreme temperature changes can also improve your home’s energy efficiency.
