How to find energy efficient replacement windows in Ketchum, ID

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 made today can offer a lot more perks that the one’s you’re replacing. Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been numerous 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 Ketchum put together for you to consider:

  1. Pick the right glass. There are a few pane options 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 offers almost double the insulation that single-pane does, and if you want even more energy efficiency, there is triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the performance you desire from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and improved comfort—proper installation is essential. Even the highest-quality 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 make certain that your products are installed the right way.

  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 pick 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 pros at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find the right coating for your replacement windows.
