Published on

Coming to the realization that it’s time to start doing research for replacement windows is something that many homeowners have to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows made today can provide a lot more bonuses that the one’s currently installed. Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been a lot of improvements even in the last 10-15 years that can help you increase 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 Birmingham put together for you to think through:

  1. Select the right glass. There are a few pane choices for you to consider when searching for replacement windows, but the most important thing to keep in mind 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 more energy efficiency, we have triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the performance you desire from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and superior 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 ensure your products are installed properly.

  3. Coat accordingly. With the number of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass coatings available, you can ensure that your new replacement windows are guarding your home correctly. And when you strategically choose your glass coatings, your energy efficiency can see an uptick. From coatings that reflect heat in the summer to others that halt harmful UV rays, one of the specialists at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find the ideal coating for your replacement windows.
