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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

as a primer for identifying your replacement windows,
