How to find energy efficient replacement windows in Gaithersburg, MD

Coming to the realization that it’s time to start searching for replacement windows is something that nearly all homeowners have to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows made today can give homeowners a lot more perks that the one’s currently installed. 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 keep an eye out for when you’re searching for energy efficient replacement windows? Here’s a small list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Gaithersburg put together for you to read:

  1. Select the right glass. There are a few pane choices for you to consider when looking for replacement windows, but the most important thing to remember 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, we have triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the benefits you desire from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and greater 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 yearly to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help ensure your products are installed correctly.

  3. Coat accordingly. With the various Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass coatings available, you can ensure that your new replacement windows are protecting your home appropriately. And when you strategically choose your glass coatings, your energy efficiency can see an uptick. 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 right coating for your replacement windows.

These three tips function as a primer for choosing your replacement windows, but if you’d like to get a better idea what the seemingly endless choices look like, stop by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom in Gaithersburg.
