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 created
today can give homeowners a lot more benefits
that the one’s currently installed.
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 keep an eye out for when you’re looking for energy
efficient replacement windows? Here’s a small list that the
team at Pella Windows and Doors in Haverhill put together for you to consider:
- Choose the right
glass. There are a few pane choices 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 greater energy efficiency, there
is triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the perks
you desire from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and superior 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 every
year to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help make sure your products are installed correctly.
- Coat accordingly. With
the various Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass
coatings available, you can make sure that your
new replacement windows are defending your home properly.
And when you strategically pick your glass coatings,
your energy efficiency can see enhancement.
From coatings that reflect heat in
the summer to others that block harmful UV rays, one of
the specialists at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find
the right coating for your replacement windows.

as a primer for selecting your replacement windows,
