Published on

Coming to the realization that it’s time to start searching for replacement windows is something that most homeowners have to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows created today can give homeowners 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 boost your home’s energy efficiency. So what should you keep an eye out for when you’re looking for energy efficient replacement windows? Here’s a little list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Roanoke put together for you to consider:

  1. Pick the right glass. There are a few pane options for you to consider when selecting 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, consider triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the perks you want from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and improved comfort—proper installation is critical. Even the highest-quality window or door is only as good as its installation. A Pella Expert InstallerSM, who is re-certified annually to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help make sure your products are installed properly.

  3. Coat accordingly. With the variety of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass coatings available, you can make certain that your new replacement windows are defending your home correctly. And when you strategically choose your glass coatings, your energy efficiency can see enhancement. 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 right coating for your replacement windows.
