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:

  1. 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.

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.

  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 properly.
