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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

as a primer for choosing your replacement windows,
