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 developed today can provide a lot more bonuses that the one’s you’re replacing. 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 boost your home’s energy efficiency. So what should you be on the lookout for when you’re searching for energy efficient replacement windows? Here’s a short list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Hunt Valley put together for you to think through:

  1. Pick the right glass. There are a few pane possibilities for you to consider when searching for replacement windows, but the most important thing to keep in mind 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, there is triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the perks you desire from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and improved comfort—proper installation is crucial. Even the highest-quality 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 the right way.

  3. Coat accordingly. With the variety of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass coatings available, you can ensure that your new replacement windows are defending your home appropriately. 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 specialists at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find the best coating for your replacement windows.
