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 developed
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 advancements even
in the last 10-15 years that can help you increase your
home’s energy efficiency. So what should you look for when you’re searching for energy
efficient replacement windows? Here’s a small list that the
team at Pella Windows and Doors in Shrewsbury put together for you to consider:
- Pick the right
glass. There are a few pane choices 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 offers 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 performance
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 annually to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help make
certain that your products are installed the
- 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 correctly.
And when you strategically pick your glass coatings,
your energy efficiency can see an uptick.
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 right coating for your replacement windows.
