Coming to the realization that it’s
time to start doing research for replacement windows is something that most homeowners have
to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows developed
today can give homeowners a lot more benefits
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 boost 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 Eau Claire put together for you to read:
- Choose the right
glass. There are a few pane options for you to
consider when selecting replacement
windows, but the most important thing to keep in mind 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, consider triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the performance
you expect from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and improved comfort—proper installation is crucial.
Even the best-performing
window or door is only as good as its installation. A Pella
Expert InstallerSM, who is re-certified annually to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help make
certain that your products are installed correctly.
- Coat accordingly. With
the variety of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass
coatings available, you can ensure that your
new replacement windows are defending your home correctly.
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 halt harmful UV rays, one of
the pros at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find
the right coating for your replacement windows.
