Coming to the realization that it’s time to start doing research for replacement windows is something that most homeowners have to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows developed today can offer a lot more benefits that the one’s you’re replacing. Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been a lot of developments even in the last 10-15 years that can help you boost your home’s energy efficiency. So what should you look for when you’re looking for energy efficient replacement windows? Here’s a small list that the team at Pella in North Carolina put together for you to read:

  1. Pick the right glass. There are a few pane options for you to consider when selecting replacement windows, but the most important thing to remember is their energy efficiency. When it comes to Pella® windows, double-pane glass provides almost double the insulation that single-pane does, and if you want even better energy efficiency, we have triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the benefits you desire from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and superior comfort—proper installation is essential. Even the greatest window or door is only as good as its installation. A Pella Expert InstallerSM, who is re-certified every year to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help ensure your products are installed correctly.

  3. Coat accordingly. With the variety of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass coatings available, you can make certain that your new replacement windows are protecting your home correctly. And when you strategically pick your glass coatings, your energy efficiency can see improvement. From coatings that reflect heat in the summer to others that block harmful UV rays, one of the specialists at Pella can help you find the right coating for your replacement windows.

These three tips function as a primer for selecting your replacement windows, but if you’d like to get a better idea what the variety of choices look like, stop by the Pella showroom in North Carolina.
