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
- 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. 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, we have triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the perks
you want from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and superior comfort—proper installation is crucial.
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.
- 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.
