Well… it’s time for the inevitable… Minnesota winter has arrived with a bang! Waking up and looking outside your bedroom window at all the snow and ice can send chills down your spine. Not only looking…. but if your home windows aren’t well-insulated windows or energy efficient windows, you can most certainly feel the cold air from the outside as you stand by your home windows or doors… even from the inside! Nobody wants their warm air to escape their home, especially during intense Minnesota winters. It is important to remember when selecting the right kind of windows for your home, that it is important to take into consideration that not only should they be aesthetically pleasing, provide your home with ample sunshine and warmth, but that they should also be well insulated windows or, in other words, energy efficient windows. Did you know that selecting the energy efficient insulated windows in Minneapolis for your home can have a positive impact in increasing your overall home energy efficiency by reducing your monthly energy bills? Take a look at it like this…. the more warm air you can trap within your Minneapolis home, the lesser need you have to turn up your heat in your home – in turn… lowering your heating bill through Minnesota’s prolonged winter months.
Insulated Windows in Minneapolis | Is it possible to improve the energy efficiency of your current windows?
Below, A Pane In The Glass Construction – your local Minnesota Window Contractors, will advise a couple of improvements you can possibly make to your home’s existing windows to try and improve their energy efficiency:
1 – Window Treatments | Starting off talking about window treatments or window coverings that can include heavy set blackout curtains, or thicker blinds – these are obviously not going to resolve the issue of heat loss through lack or air passages in window material or window installation completely, but they may be able to reduce it a little bit.
2 – Weatherstripping | This can lower the amount of air that can escape from your existing windows by creating an extra or additional barrier of window components to help reduce air leakage.
3 – Caulking | Simple Caulking of areas around your window frame that may have cracks or gaps will also help to reduce air leakage from your home.
4 – Storm Windows | Storm windows are an add-on to your existing residential windows (or commercial windows in and office space) that can assist in reducing air leakage from your hoem or business. Storm Windows are windows installed outside a pre-existent or already installed house window. Their purpose is to give extra wind protection and weather insulation apart from temperature control to your Minneapolis home. Storm windows are thus installed on top of your original windows. They can be custom-made to fit over your current home windows and are available in a number of different types and colors. You can opt for interior storm windows as well, that are placed inside your Minneapolis house as opposed to outside as well – depending on how the weather co-orporates. Storm windows come in either two track or triple track versions.
