Published on

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 made today can offer a lot more bonuses that the one’s currently installed. Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been numerous improvements 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 looking for energy efficient replacement windows? Here’s a small list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Kansas City put together for you to read:

  1. Pick the right glass. There are a few pane options for you to consider when searching for 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 greater energy efficiency, there is triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the performance you desire from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and improved comfort—proper installation is critical. Even the best-performing 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.

  3. Coat accordingly. With the number of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass coatings available, you can ensure that your new replacement windows are guarding your home properly. 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 stop harmful UV rays, one of the pros at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find the ideal coating for your replacement windows.
