Chicago Climate Recommendations
Residents of “The Windy City” live in a moderate climate with four distinct seasons — from cool, wet springs to mild, pleasant falls. The city’s close proximity to Lake Michigan tends to moderate temperatures in both the winter and summer, providing relief from the summer heat and limiting precipitation during the summer months. Conversely, the lake effect enhances winter precipitation, adding an extra layer of snow to go along with the often frigid temperatures.
Pella Impervia windows feature a durable powder-coat finish for the stylish look of painted wood. Pella’s wood windows provide effective insulation to help keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Encompass by Pella® windows with maintenance-free vinyl frames also help mitigate the expansion or contraction that can occur when temperatures reach the height of extreme heat or drop to the level of severe cold.
Double or Triple Pane Glass
Cut your energy costs with more panes of glass. Invest in energy-efficient double or triple pane windows that fill with insulating gas for added thermal efficiency.
Keep warm in the winter by reducing the heat loss from your home. Window panes of glass with Advanced Low-E will help keep your home insulated, blocking out the cold and keeping the heat in.
Frequent storms during the winter bring bitter cold and frozen precipitation. Wood with aluminum cladding, vinyl, and fiberglass are low maintenance and can help stand up to extreme weather.
