Windows play a significant role in your home appearance as well as protection. Winter is now in full force; to keep the cold out of your home, it's essential to make sure you have windows that hold the heat in and keep the cold out. Different windows are more suited for winter, which is key to increasing energy savings and preventing heat loss. Windows have two main parts: the window glass itself and the frame. Both of these are important to consider when looking for windows for cold weather climates.
Window Frames: The window frame is often where the most heat escapes, so it's essential to ensure that it is in good condition and made of the right material. The best frames for cold zones are anything but aluminum.
- Wood and Wood-clad frames
- Vinyl frames
- Fiberglass frames
- Composite frames
Window Glass: Avoid single-pane windows when it comes to the window itself. Instead, choose double-pane or triple-pane glass windows made from low-E glass that is coated to prevent the transfer of heat from inside to the outside of the window. Low-E glass has been treated with a thin, metallic coating designed to filter certain types of light into your home. In winter, this allows sunlight in to help keep your home warm.
How to keep cold air from coming through the windows? The windows have a film that acts like sunglasses for your house, keeping the UV rays out of your home. Energy-saving windows can do more than just save you money; they can also help you conserve resources, which means our planet benefits as well.
"Storm windows" refers to windows installed outside the already-installed primary house windows. Storm windows can be custom-ordered to fit your current windows, reducing airflow for better insulation.
