How to find energy efficient replacement windows in Binghamton, NY

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 made today can give homeowners a lot more benefits that the one’s you’re replacing. 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 improve your home’s energy efficiency. So what should you look for when you’re in the market for energy efficient replacement windows? Here’s a short list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Binghamton put together for you to consider:

  1. Select the right glass. There are a few pane options for you to consider when selecting replacement windows, but the most important thing to take note of is their energy efficiency. When it comes to Pella® windows, double-pane glass provides almost double the insulation that single-pane does, and if you want even better energy efficiency, consider triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the benefits you expect from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and improved comfort—proper installation is crucial. Even the greatest 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 ensure your products are installed properly.

  3. Coat accordingly. With the number of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass coatings available, you can make sure that your new replacement windows are guarding your home appropriately. And when you strategically select your glass coatings, your energy efficiency can see improvement. From coatings that reflect heat in the summer to others that block harmful UV rays, one of the pros at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find the ideal coating for your replacement windows.

These three tips work as a primer for selecting your replacement windows, but if you’d like to get a better idea what the various possibilities look like, stop by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom in Binghamton.
