Published on

Coming to the realization that it’s time to start doing research for replacement windows is something that many homeowners have to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows created today can give homeowners a lot more perks that the one’s you’re replacing. Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been a great number of improvements even in the last 10-15 years that can help you improve your home’s energy efficiency. So what should you be on the lookout for when you’re looking for energy efficient replacement windows? Here’s a small list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Charlotte put together for you to think through:

  1. Choose the right glass. There are a few pane options for you to consider when looking 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 greater energy efficiency, there is triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the benefits you desire from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and greater comfort—proper installation is essential. Even the highest-quality 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 make sure your products are installed the right way.

  3. Coat accordingly. With the variety of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass coatings available, you can ensure that your new replacement windows are guarding your home correctly. And when you strategically select your glass coatings, your energy efficiency can see improvement. From coatings that reflect heat in the summer to others that block harmful UV rays, one of the specialists at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find the best coating for your replacement windows.

These three tips function as a primer for identifying your replacement windows, but if you’d like to get a better idea what the seemingly endless options look like, stop by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom in Charlotte.
