Coming to the realization that it’s
time to start doing research for replacement windows is something that most homeowners have
to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows developed
today can offer a lot more bonuses
that the one’s you currently have.
Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been numerous developments even
in the last 10-15 years that can help you increase your
home’s energy efficiency. So what should you keep an eye out for when you’re in the market for energy
efficient replacement windows? Here’s a little list that the
team at Pella Windows and Doors in Newport put together for you to consider:
- Pick 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, we have triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the benefits
you expect from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and superior 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 annually to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help make
certain that your products are installed correctly.
- Coat accordingly. With
the variety 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 improvement.
From coatings that reflect heat in
the summer to others that block harmful UV rays, one of
the experts at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find
the best coating for your replacement windows.

as a primer for identifying your replacement windows,
