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 created
today can give homeowners a lot more bonuses
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 improve your
home’s energy efficiency. So what should you look for when you’re searching for energy
efficient replacement windows? Here’s a little list that the
team at Pella Windows and Doors in Portsmouth put together for you to consider:
- Select the right
glass. There are a few pane possibilities 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 greater energy efficiency, there
is triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the perks
you want from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and superior comfort—proper installation is essential.
Even the highest-quality
window or door is only as good as its installation. A Pella
Expert InstallerSM, who is re-certified annually to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help ensure 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 guarding your home properly.
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 pros at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find
the ideal coating for your replacement windows.

as a primer for identifying your replacement windows,
