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 Overland Park put together for you to read:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
These three tips work
as a primer for choosing your replacement windows,
