Coming to the realization that it’s
time to start doing research for replacement windows is something that most homeowners have
to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows created
today can offer a lot more perks
that the one’s currently installed.
Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been a
great number of advancements even
in the last 10-15 years that can help you increase 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 little list that the
team at Pella Windows and Doors in Plattsburgh 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, consider triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the perks
you want from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and superior comfort—proper installation is essential.
Even the greatest
window or door is only as good as its installation. A Pella
Expert InstallerSM, who is re-certified every
year to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help make
certain that your products are installed properly.
- Coat accordingly. With
the number of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass
coatings available, you can make sure that your
new replacement windows are protecting 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 pros at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find
the ideal coating for your replacement windows.

as a primer for identifying your replacement windows,
