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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

as a primer for choosing your replacement windows,
