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 created
today can give homeowners a lot more perks
that the one’s you currently have.
Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been a
great number of improvements even
in the last 10-15 years that can help you improve your
home’s energy efficiency. So what should you be on the
lookout for when you’re in the market for energy
efficient replacement windows? Here’s a small list that the
team at Pella Windows and Doors in Asheville put together for you to think
- Pick the right
glass. There are a few pane possibilities for you to
consider when selecting replacement
windows, but the most important thing to take note
of 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, there
is triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the perks
you expect from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and superior comfort—proper installation is crucial.
Even the best-performing
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 the
- Coat accordingly. With
the variety of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass
coatings available, you can ensure that your
new replacement windows are defending 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 specialists at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find
the right coating for your replacement windows.
