Published on

Coming to the realization that it’s time to start searching for replacement windows is something that many homeowners have to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows developed today can give homeowners a lot more benefits that the one’s you currently have. 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 Champaign put together for you to think through:

  1. Choose the right glass. There are a few pane possibilities for you to consider when selecting 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 perks you desire 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 yearly to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help make certain that 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 defending your home appropriately. And when you strategically pick your glass coatings, your energy efficiency can see enhancement. From coatings that reflect heat in the summer to others that block harmful UV rays, one of the pros at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find the best coating for your replacement windows.
