Coming to the realization that it’s
time to start looking for replacement windows is something that many homeowners have
to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows created
today can provide a lot more bonuses
that the one’s you’re replacing.
Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been numerous developments even
in the last 10-15 years that can help you increase your
home’s energy efficiency. So what should you be on the
lookout for when you’re searching for energy
efficient replacement windows? Here’s a small list that the
team at Pella Windows and Doors in Danville put together for you to think
- Pick the right
glass. There are a few pane choices for you to
consider when looking for replacement
windows, but the most important thing to take note
of is their energy efficiency. When it comes to Pella® windows, double-pane glass gives
you almost double the insulation that single-pane does, and if you
want even more energy efficiency, consider triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the perks
you expect from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and improved comfort—proper installation is critical.
Even the highest-quality
window or door is only as good as its installation. A Pella
Expert InstallerSM, who is re-certified annually to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help ensure your products are installed correctly.
- Coat accordingly. With
the various Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass
coatings available, you can ensure that your
new replacement windows are guarding your home appropriately.
And when you strategically pick your glass coatings,
your energy efficiency can see an uptick.
From coatings that reflect heat in
the summer to others that halt harmful UV rays, one of
the experts at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find
the right coating for your replacement windows.
