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:
- 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.
- 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
- 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.
