Coming to the realization that it’s
time to start searching for replacement windows is something that most homeowners have
to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows created
today can provide a lot more benefits
that the one’s you’re replacing.
Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been numerous improvements 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 little list that the
team at Pella Windows and Doors in Boise put together for you to read:
- Select the right
glass. There are a few pane possibilities for you to
consider when looking for replacement
windows, but the most important thing to take note
of 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 greater energy efficiency, consider triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the perks
you want from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and greater comfort—proper installation is essential.
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 correctly.
- Coat accordingly. With
the number of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass
coatings available, you can ensure that your
new replacement windows are protecting your home correctly.
And when you strategically choose your glass coatings,
your energy efficiency can see an uptick.
From coatings that reflect heat in
the summer to others that halt 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 selecting your replacement windows,
