Coming to the realization that it’s
time to start looking for replacement windows is something that many homeowners have
to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows developed
today can offer a lot more perks
that the one’s you currently have.
Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been numerous improvements even
in the last 10-15 years that can help you improve 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 little list that the
team at Pella Windows and Doors in Albany put together for you to think
- Choose the right
glass. There are a few pane possibilities for you to
consider when looking for replacement
windows, but the most important thing to remember is their energy efficiency. When it comes to Pella® windows, double-pane glass gives
you 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 greater comfort—proper installation is crucial.
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 make
certain that your products are installed correctly.
- Coat accordingly. With
the various 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 an uptick.
From coatings that reflect heat in
the summer to others that block harmful UV rays, one of
the specialists at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find
the best coating for your replacement windows.
