Coming to the realization that it’s
time to start searching for replacement windows is something that many 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 you currently have.
Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been a
great number of developments even
in the last 10-15 years that can help you boost 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 Greensboro put together for you to think
- Choose the right
glass. There are a few pane choices for you to
consider when looking for replacement
windows, but the most important thing to remember is their energy efficiency. When it comes to Pella® windows, double-pane glass offers almost double the insulation that single-pane does, and if you
want even better energy efficiency, there
is triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the benefits
you want from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and greater comfort—proper installation is critical.
Even the greatest
window or door is only as good as its installation. A Pella
Expert InstallerSM, who is re-certified every
year to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help make
certain that your products are installed correctly.
- Coat accordingly. With
the number of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass
coatings available, you can make sure that your
new replacement windows are guarding your home properly.
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 specialists at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find
the ideal coating for your replacement windows.
