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 made
today can give homeowners a lot more perks
that the one’s you currently have.
Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been a lot of developments even
in the last 10-15 years that can help you boost your
home’s energy efficiency. So what should you look for when you’re searching for energy
efficient replacement windows? Here’s a short list that the
team at Pella Windows and Doors in Denver put together for you to consider:
- Pick the right
glass. There are a few pane possibilities for you to
consider when searching for replacement
windows, but the most important thing to keep in mind is their energy efficiency. When it comes to Pella® windows, double-pane glass offers almost double the insulation that single-pane does, and if you
want even more energy efficiency, consider 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 crucial.
Even the greatest
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 make
certain that your products are installed the
- Coat accordingly. With
the various Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass
coatings available, you can make sure that your
new replacement windows are defending your home correctly.
And when you strategically select 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 pros at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find
the best coating for your replacement windows.
