Published on

Coming to the realization that it’s time to start doing research for replacement windows is something that nearly all homeowners have to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows developed today can provide a lot more bonuses that the one’s you currently have. Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been a lot 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 searching for energy efficient replacement windows? Here’s a short list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Colorado Springs put together for you to consider:

  1. Pick the right glass. There are a few pane possibilities 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 offers almost double the insulation that single-pane does, and if you want even better energy efficiency, there is triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the performance you want from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and improved comfort—proper installation is crucial. Even the best-performing 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 right way.

  3. 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 appropriately. 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 block harmful UV rays, one of the pros at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find the right coating for your replacement windows.
