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 provide a lot more benefits
that the one’s currently installed.
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 improve 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 small list that the
team at Pella Windows and Doors in Providence put together for you to read:
- Choose the right
glass. There are a few pane choices 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 offers almost double the insulation that single-pane does, and if you
want even better energy efficiency, consider triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the benefits
you expect from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and improved comfort—proper installation is crucial.
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 make sure your products are installed properly.
- 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 appropriately.
And when you strategically select your glass coatings,
your energy efficiency can see improvement.
From coatings that reflect heat in
the summer to others that stop harmful UV rays, one of
the pros at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find
the best coating for your replacement windows.

as a primer for choosing your replacement windows,
