Published on

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 made today can provide a lot more bonuses that the one’s you currently have. Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been a lot of improvements even in the last 10-15 years that can help you increase your home’s energy efficiency. So what should you keep an eye out for when you’re searching for energy efficient replacement windows? Here’s a small list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Washington DC put together for you to read:

  1. Choose the right glass. There are a few pane options 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 greater energy efficiency, consider triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the performance you want from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and superior 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 every year to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help make certain that your products are installed the right way.

  3. Coat accordingly. With the variety of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass coatings available, you can make sure that your new replacement windows are defending your home correctly. 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 stop harmful UV rays, one of the specialists at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find the best coating for your replacement windows.
