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:
- 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.
- Professional installation. To truly get the benefits
you desire from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and improved 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.
- 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,
