Coming to the realization that it’s time to start looking 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 perks that the one’s currently installed. Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been numerous advancements 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 in the market for energy efficient replacement windows? Here’s a small list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Westerly put together for you to think through:

  1. Select the right glass. There are a few pane possibilities for you to consider when selecting replacement windows, but the most important thing to remember is their energy efficiency.

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 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 appropriately. 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 stop harmful UV rays, one of the specialists at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find the ideal coating for your replacement windows.
