Why You Should Consider Replacement Windows this Winter
Winter weather can get mighty chilly here in the Kansas City area, but there’s one thing you can do today to help keep your home cozy and warm through the darkest and coldest nights. Energy-efficient replacement windows do a whole lot more than make a dent in your heating bill; they also help to regulate the temperature in your house, reduce drafts, and keep you and your family comfortable, no matter how cold it gets outside.
If you’ve ever walked or sat next to the window on a cold winter’s night, you know that windows can create cold drafts that your heater may be powerless to overcome. Most glass doesn’t possess the same insulating properties as a solid wall, after all, and as the air next to the glass cools and drops to the floor, it creates drafts that can chill large portions of an otherwise warm room. That’s not even taking into account windows that are improperly sealed, which can let cold air in around the edges.
It doesn’t matter how good your furnace is, or how much cheerier that roaring fireplace may make your room appear—if there’s cold air coming in your windows, your room isn’t going to be as warm as you’d like. Of course, you can help by putting up curtains and blinds that block some of the cold air, but then you can’t look outside to admire the falling snow or the Christmas lights this holiday season. So what’s the solution? Energy-efficient replacement windows are engineered to keep your house warm, even while the weather outside is frightful!
Energy-efficient replacement windows aren’t just for the winter. They’ll benefit your home all year round, including helping to block sun that causes overheating during the hot summers that we experience here in Kansas City.
