How to find energy efficient replacement windows in Scottsdale, AZ

Coming to the realization that it’s time to start searching for replacement windows is something that most 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’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 improve your home’s energy efficiency. So what should you look for when you’re looking for energy efficient replacement windows? Here’s a short list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Scottsdale put together for you to think through:

  1. 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 take note of is their energy efficiency. When it comes to Pella® windows, double-pane glass provides almost double the insulation that single-pane does, and if you want even better energy efficiency, we have triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the performance you want from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and improved comfort—proper installation is critical. Even the highest-quality window or door is only as good as its installation. A Pella Expert InstallerSM, who is re-certified every year to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help ensure your products are installed the right way.

  3. Coat accordingly. With the number of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass coatings available, you can make sure that your new replacement windows are guarding your home correctly. And when you strategically pick your glass coatings, your energy efficiency can see improvement. 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 work as a primer for selecting your replacement windows, but if you’d like to get a better idea what the various choices look like, stop by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom in Scottsdale.
