Coming to the realization that it’s
time to start doing research for replacement windows is something that nearly all homeowners have
to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows created
today can provide a lot more benefits
that the one’s you’re replacing.
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 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 short list that the
team at Pella Windows and Doors in Nashville 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 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 greater energy efficiency, there
is 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 essential.
Even the greatest
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
certain that your products are installed correctly.
- Coat accordingly. With
the various Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass
coatings available, you can make certain that your
new replacement windows are protecting your home properly.
And when you strategically pick 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 experts at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find
the right coating for your replacement windows.
