Coming to the realization that it’s
time to start doing research for replacement windows is something that nearly all homeowners have
to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows made
today can provide a lot more bonuses
that the one’s currently installed.
Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been a lot of developments 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 in the market for energy
efficient replacement windows? Here’s a small list that the
team at Pella Windows and Doors in Woburn put together for you to read:
- 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 provides 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 perks
you desire from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and greater 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 make sure your products are installed properly.
- Coat accordingly. With
the various Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass
coatings available, you can make sure that your
new replacement windows are guarding your home correctly.
And when you strategically select your glass coatings,
your energy efficiency can see improvement.
From coatings that reflect heat in
the summer to others that block harmful UV rays, one of
the pros at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find
the best coating for your replacement windows.
These three tips function
as a primer for selecting your replacement windows,

endless possibilities look like, stop by
