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 created
today can offer 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
great number of developments even
in the last 10-15 years that can help you improve your
home’s energy efficiency. So what should you be on the
lookout for when you’re in the market for energy
efficient replacement windows? Here’s a small list that the
team at Pella Windows and Doors in Terre Haute put together for you to consider:
- Pick the right
glass. There are a few pane choices for you to
consider when searching for replacement
windows, but the most important thing to remember is their energy efficiency. When it comes to Pella® windows, double-pane glass gives
you almost double the insulation that single-pane does, and if you
want even greater energy efficiency, consider triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the benefits
you want from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and greater comfort—proper installation is essential.
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 properly.
- Coat accordingly. With
the variety of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass
coatings available, you can ensure that your
new replacement windows are defending your home correctly.
And when you strategically pick your glass coatings,
your energy efficiency can see improvement.
From coatings that reflect heat in
the summer to others that stop harmful UV rays, one of
the specialists at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find
the right coating for your replacement windows.
These three tips work
as a primer for identifying your replacement windows,
but if you’d like to get a better idea what the seemingly
endless choices look like, stop by
