Published on

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 made today can offer a lot more perks that the one’s currently installed. 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 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 short list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Davenport put together for you to read:

  1. Select the right glass. There are a few pane possibilities for you to consider when selecting replacement windows, but the most important thing to take note of 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 benefits you desire from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and improved 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 ensure your products are installed the right way.

  3. Coat accordingly. With the variety of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass coatings available, you can make certain that your new replacement windows are protecting your home correctly. And when you strategically choose your glass coatings, your energy efficiency can see improvement. From coatings that reflect heat in the summer to others that halt harmful UV rays, one of the pros at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find the right coating for your replacement windows.
