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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

as a primer for selecting your replacement windows,
