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 created
today can provide a lot more bonuses
that the one’s currently installed.
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 Minneapolis put together for you to read:
- Select the right
glass. There are a few pane options for you to
consider when searching for 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, consider triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the perks
you desire from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and greater comfort—proper installation is essential.
Even the highest-quality
window or door is only as good as its installation. A Pella
Expert InstallerSM, who is re-certified yearly to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help make
certain that your products are installed the
- Coat accordingly. With
the number of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass
coatings available, you can make certain that your
new replacement windows are defending your home properly.
And when you strategically choose your glass coatings,
your energy efficiency can see improvement.
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.
