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
- 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.
- 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
- 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.
