Harrisburg Bay Windows

Bay Windows Connect Pennsylvania Homes with Traditional Roots

A bay window consists of three window panes: one central picture window and two operable windows set at an angle on either side. Bay windows are a beautiful architectural feature on any home, providing curb appeal from the outside and additional light on the inside. Because bay windows project away from the home they also have the benefit of creating additional space on the interior and can be ideal spots for creating window seats or cozy reading nooks.

Bay and bow windows have timeless appeal and are frequently seen on traditional homes like Colonials and Victorians. Bay windows are prominent features on many of the townhomes and row houses in Harrisburg and Lancaster.

Commonly known as: projection window, bay box window

  • Traditional bay windows with curtains Energy-Efficient Bay Windows

    Energy-efficient windows can help regulate the climate of your home and cut energy costs. Pella bay windows with the ENERGY STAR® rating can help improve the thermal performance of your home. Pella offers insulating glass options that can help keep cold air out in the winter and hot air out in the Pennsylvania summer. Closing or adjusting the blinds is another way to temper the intense sunshine entering your windows. Between-the-glass blinds are available exclusively on bay and bow windows in Pella’s Lifestyle series.

  • Bay window with seating area Traditional Bay Window Architecture Traditional styles of homes are prominent throughout the northeast United States. You will find beautiful bay and bow windows on many of the Colonial and Victorian-style homes and townhomes around Harrisburg. Traditional grille patterns on replacement windows can help reinforce the classic roots of homes like these, however, bear in mind that if you are updating the bay or bow window on a historic home, there may be certain guidelines to follow.
  • Bay windows in a kitchen with table and chair Kitchen Bay Windows

    While bay and bow windows are commonly placed on the front of homes for a wider view of the street, they are an equally popular choice for rooms on the back of the home, like kitchens and dining areas. Bay windows in the kitchen can help open up a space that historically may have been small and closed off. A bay window in front of the kitchen sink can provide natural light for tasks and allow for those in the kitchen to keep an eye on children or pets outside.

  • Small bay window Bay Window Sizes

    Pella bay and bow windows are available in a range of sizes, with options for 30- and 45-degree bay windows and 4- and 5-unit bow windows. The depth of a bay window, or how far it projects away from the home, depends on the degree of the angle, and the width of the center and the two flanking windows. Whether it’s a small bay window or a large one you seek, there’s a size to suit your needs.

Harrisburg Climate Recommendations

Southeastern Pennsylvania falls into the humid-continental climate zone, with Harrisburg falling at the northernmost edge of that zone. This climate zone brings warm, humid summers and cold, snowy winters. Precipitation is expected year-round in this region, with Harrisburg experiencing on average 43 inches of rain and 28 inches of snow per year. Prepare for the fluctuations in temperature with insulating glass windows.

Fiberglass Window Insulation

Fiberglass Windows

For good insulation and protection from drafts and leaks, choose fiberglass bay windows.

Low-E Protection

Low-E Protection

Keep warm in the winter by helping to reduce the heat loss from your home. Windows with panes of glass with Low-E help keep your home insulated, blocking out the cold and helping keep the heat in.

Durable Materials

Durable Materials

Frequent storms during winter in southeastern Pennsylvania can bring bitter cold and frozen precipitation. Wood windows with exterior aluminum cladding are ideal for withstanding the elements.
