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
- 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.
- 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
- 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
