How to find energy efficient replacement windows in Albany, NY

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 through:

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

These three tips work as a primer for choosing your replacement windows, but if you’d like to get a better idea what the various options look like, stop by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom in Albany. Whether it’s a question about which material type is right for your home or you’d like to see your options up close and in person, feel free to give the team at Pella Windows and Doors a call at 518-414-5302 or arrange an in-home consultation using the online scheduler.
