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
- 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.
- 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
- 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.
