Coming to the realization that it’s
time to start searching for replacement windows is something that nearly all homeowners have
to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows created
today can provide a lot more bonuses
that the one’s currently installed.
Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been a
great number of improvements even
in the last 10-15 years that can help you increase your
home’s energy efficiency. So what should you look for when you’re in the market for energy
efficient replacement windows? Here’s a little list that the
team at Pella Windows and Doors in South Burlington put together for you to consider:
- Choose the right
glass. There are a few pane possibilities for you to
consider when selecting replacement
windows, but the most important thing to remember is their energy efficiency. When it comes to Pella® windows, double-pane glass provides 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 perks
you expect from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and greater 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 every
year to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help make sure 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 properly.
And when you strategically select your glass coatings,
your energy efficiency can see enhancement.
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 ideal coating for your replacement windows.
These three tips serve
as a primer for choosing your replacement windows,
