Published on

Coming to the realization that it’s time to start searching for replacement windows is something that many homeowners have to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows developed today can give homeowners a lot more perks 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 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 Hanover put together for you to read:

  1. Choose the right glass. There are a few pane options for you to consider when selecting 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 more 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 essential. Even the greatest 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 ensure 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 guarding your home appropriately. And when you strategically choose your glass coatings, your energy efficiency can see an uptick. From coatings that reflect heat in the summer to others that block harmful UV rays, one of the pros at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find the best coating for your replacement windows.
