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 developed today can offer a lot more benefits that the one’s currently installed. Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been a great number of developments even in the last 10-15 years that can help you boost your home’s energy efficiency. So what should you be on the lookout for when you’re in the market for energy efficient replacement windows? Here’s a small list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Sunset Hills put together for you to think through:

  1. Select the right glass. There are a few pane possibilities for you to consider when searching 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 provides almost double the insulation that single-pane does, and if you want even more energy efficiency, there is triple-pane glass.

  2. 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 best-performing 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 make sure your products are installed correctly.

  3. 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 select your glass coatings, your energy efficiency can see enhancement. From coatings that reflect heat in the summer to others that block harmful UV rays, one of the experts at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find the best coating for your replacement windows.
