Published on

Coming to the realization that it’s time to start searching for replacement windows is something that nearly all homeowners have to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows developed today can provide a lot more bonuses that the one’s you currently have. Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been a lot of advancements even in the last 10-15 years that can help you increase your home’s energy efficiency. So what should you be on the lookout for when you’re looking for energy efficient replacement windows? Here’s a small list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Traverse City put together for you to consider:

  1. Pick the right glass. There are a few pane possibilities 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 offers almost double the insulation that single-pane does, and if you want even better energy efficiency, we have triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the perks you expect from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and greater 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 annually to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help ensure 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 pick 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 experts at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find the best coating for your replacement windows.
