Coming to the realization that it’s time to start looking for replacement windows is something that many homeowners have to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows made today can give homeowners a lot more benefits that the one’s you’re replacing. Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been a great number of developments 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 little list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Falls Church put together for you to read:

  1. Select the right glass. There are a few pane options for you to consider when looking 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 greater energy efficiency, consider triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the perks 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 annually to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help ensure your products are installed the right way.

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