Coming to the realization that it’s
time to start doing research for replacement windows is something that most homeowners have
to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows created
today can provide a lot more perks
that the one’s you’re replacing.
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 keep an eye out for when you’re searching for energy
efficient replacement windows? Here’s a little list that the
team at Pella Windows and Doors in San Antonio put together for you to read:
- Pick the right
glass. There are a few pane possibilities 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 gives
you 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 benefits
you desire from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and superior comfort—proper installation is essential.
Even the best-performing
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 make
certain that your products are installed correctly.
- Coat accordingly. With
the various Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass
coatings available, you can make certain that your
new replacement windows are defending your home correctly.
And when you strategically select 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 experts at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find
the best coating for your replacement windows.
