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:
- 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.
- 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
- 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.
