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:

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
