How to find energy efficient replacement windows in Norwalk, CT

Coming to the realization that it’s time to start looking for replacement windows is something that nearly all homeowners have to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows made today can provide a lot more bonuses 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 keep an eye out for when you’re looking for energy efficient replacement windows? Here’s a little list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Norwalk put together for you to consider:

  1. 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 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, consider triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the benefits you expect from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and superior 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 ensure your products are installed properly.

  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 choose your glass coatings, your energy efficiency can see improvement. From coatings that reflect heat in the summer to others that halt harmful UV rays, one of the experts at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find the right coating for your replacement windows.

These three tips serve as a primer for choosing your replacement windows, but if you’d like to get a better idea what the seemingly endless choices look like, stop by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom in Norwalk.
