As the holidays near, you might be thinking about the expenses associated with hosting Thanksgiving, Christmas shopping for the family, and buying winter clothes. The last thing you want to think about spending more money on during the winter season is your energy bill.
The cold temperatures that accompany Indianapolis winters can cause your energy bill to rise, especially if you have old, drafty windows. If this is the case, you may want to consider replacing your old windows with energy-efficient Pella® windows. When you invest in a Pella window replacement, you will experience a warmer home and lower heating costs during the winter months. At JD Hostetter, we are committed to installing your Pella windows the right way the first time, so you can simply enjoy the holiday season with your family.
A smart homeowner will select windows that are affordable, energy-saving, and durable. We believe in Pella windows because they will save you money and keep your home warm this winter.
What Makes Pella Windows Energy-Efficient?
Pella offers energy-saving technology that will greatly benefit you and your family during the winter season. Energy-efficient windows offer wonderful advantages for homeowners, including improved insulation, the elimination of drafts, a lower utility bill, the longevity of air conditioning units, and comfortable temperatures within your home.
Pella windows save energy because they are made with multiple panes of glass, include both a low-emissivity glass coating and argon between the panes of glass to insulate against the hot and cold, and offer several insulating window frame options. Pella is also an Energy Star® partner and is committed to providing windows that save money, enhance comfort, and protect the environment.
We’ve gathered a list of reasons why Pella windows are the smart choice to save you on your energy bill and keep your home warm this winter.
Multiple Panes of Glass
Although single-pane windows cost less initially, they can result in higher energy bills later. Since single-pane windows have no insulation, they keep the inside of your home cold and permit outside noises to enter.
Pella only offers dual-pane and triple-pane windows, which ensures that the windows installed in your home will keep energy bills low, your home insulated, and the neighborhood noises outside.
Argon Between Panes of Glass
In addition to providing windows with multiple panes of glass, Pella inserts argon between the panes to add extra insulation. Argon is a colorless, non-toxic gas that is denser than air. When placed between your window panes, it provides extra protection from the weather outside.
Low-E Glass Coating
One of the many energy-saving features Pella provides is low-emissivity technology for the InsulShield glass collection. In the winter, the Low-E glass reflects heat into your room, which allows you to stay warm, and in the summer, the glass reflects the heat away from your room, which keeps your home cooler.
Pella’s InsulShield glass collection is also designed for specific climate types, which ensures that it can withstand the cold Indianapolis winters. The Low-E window glass provides balanced insulation, which keeps your energy bill lower despite the colder weather.
Window Frame Options
Pella windows are offered in three popular and attractive options: wood, fiberglass, and vinyl. Though each option has its advantages, all three window frame options are designed to be energy-saving and insulating.
Although a lower energy bill and a cozy home are the obvious advantages to installing energy-efficient windows this winter, if you are hosting family and friends for the holidays, you can enjoy impressing them with the beautiful window frame options offered by Pella.
