Coming to the realization that it’s
time to start looking for replacement windows is something that most homeowners have
to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows created
today can offer a lot more bonuses
that the one’s currently installed.
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 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 Natick put together for you to think
- Choose 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 provides almost double the insulation that single-pane does, and if you
want even more energy efficiency, there
is triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the benefits
you want from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and improved 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 ensure 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 protecting your home appropriately.
And when you strategically choose 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 pros at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find
the ideal coating for your replacement windows.
