Published on

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:

  1. 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.

  2. 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 right way.

  3. 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.
