Coming to the realization that it’s
time to start searching for replacement windows is something that most homeowners have
to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows developed
today can offer a lot more benefits
that the one’s you currently have.
Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been a lot of advancements even
in the last 10-15 years that can help you improve your
home’s energy efficiency. So what should you look for when you’re looking for energy
efficient replacement windows? Here’s a little list that the
team at Pella Windows and Doors Southwest in Albuquerque put together for you to think
- Select the right
glass. There are a few pane possibilities 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 better energy efficiency, consider triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the benefits
you expect from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and superior comfort—proper installation is critical.
Even the greatest
window or door is only as good as its installation. A Pella
Expert InstallerSM, who is re-certified yearly to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help ensure your products are installed correctly.
- Coat accordingly. With
the various Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass
coatings available, you can make certain that your
new replacement windows are protecting your home appropriately.
And when you strategically pick your glass coatings,
your energy efficiency can see an uptick.
From coatings that reflect heat in
the summer to others that block harmful UV rays, one of
the experts at Pella Windows and Doors Southwest can help you find
the right coating for your replacement windows.
These three tips function
as a primer for identifying your replacement windows,
