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 developed
today can provide a lot more bonuses
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 searching for energy
efficient replacement windows? Here’s a short list that the
team at Pella Windows and Doors in Hunt Valley put together for you to think
- Pick the right
glass. There are a few pane possibilities for you to
consider when searching for replacement
windows, but the most important thing to keep in mind is their energy efficiency. When it comes to Pella® windows, double-pane glass gives
you almost double the insulation that single-pane does, and if you
want even better energy efficiency, there
is triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the perks
you desire from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and improved comfort—proper installation is crucial.
Even the highest-quality
window or door is only as good as its installation. A Pella
Expert InstallerSM, who is re-certified yearly to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help make sure your products are installed the
- Coat accordingly. With
the variety of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass
coatings available, you can ensure that your
new replacement windows are defending your home appropriately.
And when you strategically choose your glass coatings,
your energy efficiency can see improvement.

the summer to others that stop harmful UV rays, one of
