There is no one window style that is best for winter. However, the glass options you decide on can have a significant factor on the comfort level of your home when experiencing cold weather. Tripane windows are JELD-WEN’s top insulating glass option. These come with three separate panes of glass, each separated by an argon-gas filled cavity. The result is air-tight insulation. This means your heated air stays in the home, instead of escaping to the outdoors.
Another important factor for windows during the winter is Low-E glass. Low-E glass boosts the thermal performance of windows by absorbing UV rays. This increases heat gain during the cold winter months. Whether you choose casement or awning windows, the important part is that they are equipped with tripane, Low-E glass. This is the best way to ensure you stay cozy this winter.
