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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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,

endless choices look like, stop by
