Published on

Coming to the realization that it’s time to start searching for replacement windows is something that nearly all 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 currently have. Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been a great number of advancements even in the last 10-15 years that can help you improve 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 short list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Greenfield put together for you to consider:

  1. Choose the right glass. There are a few pane possibilities for you to consider when selecting replacement windows, but the most important thing to take note of 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 greater energy efficiency, there is triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the benefits you expect from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and improved comfort—proper installation is critical. Even the best-performing 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 various Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass coatings available, you can make certain that your new replacement windows are protecting your home properly. 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 stop harmful UV rays, one of the experts at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find the ideal coating for your replacement windows.

These three tips work as a primer for selecting your replacement windows, but if you’d like to get a better idea what the various possibilities look like, stop by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom in Greenfield.
