Choosing a Draft-Resistant Window
At some point, you’ve probably experienced a drafty window, whether in your home or someone else’s. So you know how frustrating they can be, especially in the summer and winter. Drafty windows mean heat can easily pass through the window so in the summer, it’s hard to keep the room cool and in the winter, it’s hard to keep it warm. This also means you’ll be paying more trying to compensate.
Let’s talk a little on how Marvin Infinity’s features help on this front.
How Marvin Infinity Windows Resist Drafts
We should start with Infinity’s fiberglass frame. Since it’s a lot stronger than vinyl or wood, it’s more resistant to warping, cracking, and swelling when exposed to hot and cold air or moisture. So your stronger frame brings a stronger performance. This also plays into it’s longer lifespan, meaning when your vinyl windows have lost their seals after 10 years, your Marvin Infinity windows will still be providing top-notch performance.
Other than gaps or cracks in the frame, another major source of drafts is when your window’s seal fails. If the insulative gas slips out from between the glass panes, heat will have no trouble passing through at all. The Infinity window’s seal is protected by the durable fiberglass frame, so the likelihood of your seal breaking is very low. This means that the argon-insulated panes can effortlessly block heat from moving in and out of the windows, keeping your indoor temperatures stable.
