Published on

Coming to the realization that it’s time to start looking for replacement windows is something that most homeowners have to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows made today can offer 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 advancements even in the last 10-15 years that can help you boost 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 short list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Beltsville put together for you to think through:

  1. Pick the right glass. There are a few pane choices for you to consider when looking for replacement windows, but the most important thing to remember 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, there is triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the perks you want from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and superior comfort—proper installation is critical. 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 ensure your products are installed correctly.

  3. Coat accordingly. With the various Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass coatings available, you can make certain 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 block harmful UV rays, one of the specialists at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find the best coating for your replacement windows.

These three tips function as a primer for identifying your replacement windows, but if you’d like to get a better idea what the seemingly endless choices look like, stop by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom in Beltsville.
