Replacing your windows has many benefits. Installing your windows can increase your home’s energy efficiency, ventilation, natural lighting, safety and more. So let’s take a deeper look into all the benefits and how we, at Pella, can help bring your Harrisburg home vision to life with our windows.
One thing that windows can do for your home is enhance its natural light. You can increase the amount of natural light coming into your house by adding larger or more windows. Bringing in sunlight to your home has many benefits, including making your rooms feel larger and providing warmth, along with some health benefits.
This new construction Green Castle, PA home features beautiful wood windows and doors with a black exterior and a white interior. The window's white interior brightens the rooms to make them look larger. The double-hung and picture windows bring in lots of natural light to illuminate the space. The black exterior and grilles between the glass add a modern aesthetic and visual interest to the home.
Provide Much-Needed Ventilation and Airflow
A big benefit of having windows throughout your house is the increased ventilation, especially in key areas like the kitchen and bathroom. We offer many types of windows that can help bring fresh air throughout your home, including casement, awning and double-hung windows. These window types have openings that can bring fresh air in and circulate it throughout your home. Casement and awning windows have large openings to help with this need, and double-hung windows can be opened from the top or bottom sash to allow for more airflow.
Custom Windows Can Add to Your Home’s Architecture
Custom windows have many benefits. For example, they can help match your home’s aesthetic and enhance its architecture. Many modern homes feature lots of glass space. To achieve this look, use custom windows that extend all the way to the top of your home. For example, you can add triangular windows to fit the exterior of your home, leading to the roof to let in more sunlight.
Custom windows are also commonly used to recreate the look of historic homes. For example, we can do half-circle or arched windows to fit with the traditional aesthetic.
Another customizable option is the color you choose for your windows. At Pella, we can custom color match to replicate your existing windows.
A great example of custom windows are these contemporary windows we installed on this Strasburg, PA home. It is surrounded by nature, so the homeowners wanted to add large, custom contemporary wood windows to open the bedroom to the beautiful views. The large picture windows allow in tons of natural light and create a beautiful view from all angles. The varying size of the windows also adds visual interest to the new addition.
Long-Lasting, Durable Windows
Another thing to consider when buying replacement windows is their longevity. You want stylish windows that perform well, but you also want windows that can endure the wear and tear of everyday use and last for years to come. That’s where our windows come in — specifically our fiberglass product line. Our fiberglass windows are incredibly durable and low maintenance. Our Impervia fiberglass windows are made to last against even the most extreme weather, while also having sleek lines to maintain a modern aesthetic.
We also offer wood and vinyl product lines. These product lines have been tested to make sure they can last, perform and look good for years to come. Our vinyl windows resist warping and twisting and have been tested for weathering and color retention. Our durable wood windows have low-maintenance aluminum cladding on the exterior to protect them from the elements.
Enhanced Home Safety and Security
Replacement windows can give you an improved sense of safety and security. We’ve created various innovations to help. For example, we offer vent stops to restrict how far the bottom sash of a double-hung window can open. We also have a window-opening control device that allows your windows to open to a maximum of four inches.
We also have different locking system for our windows, including our cam-action lock for our single- and double-hung windows and an optional auto lock that will automatically engage once the window sash is closed. Another feature you can add to your windows for extra security and peace of mind is our smart home technology that sends you notifications when one of your windows or doors is opened.
Energy efficiency is a huge benefit of replacement windows. Installing energy-efficient windows can help your home maintain comfort and lower your utility bill. You can also increase your window’s energy efficiency by selecting double- or triple-pane glass.
Energy efficiency is a considerable benefit when replacing your windows, which was also true for this Reinholds, PA homeowner. They were working on a kitchen remodel and decided to go with our wood Lifestyle Series windows.
