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 made today can offer 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 advancements even in the last 10-15 years that can help you increase your home’s energy efficiency. So what should you look for when you’re searching for energy efficient replacement windows? Here’s a small list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Wilmington put together for you to think through:

  1. Pick the right glass. There are a few pane options 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 greater energy efficiency, there is triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the benefits you desire from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and improved comfort—proper installation is essential. Even the greatest 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 ensure your products are installed properly.

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