Published on

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 provide 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 improvements even in the last 10-15 years that can help you improve your home’s energy efficiency. So what should you be on the lookout 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 Des Moines put together for you to consider:

  1. Choose the right glass. There are a few pane choices for you to consider when looking 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 offers almost double the insulation that single-pane does, and if you want even greater energy efficiency, we have triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the perks 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 every year to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help make certain that your products are installed correctly.

  3. Coat accordingly. With the various Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass coatings available, you can ensure that your new replacement windows are guarding your home properly. And when you strategically choose your glass coatings, your energy efficiency can see an uptick. From coatings that reflect heat in the summer to others that stop harmful UV rays, one of the specialists at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find the right coating for your replacement windows.

These three tips function as a primer for selecting your replacement windows, but if you’d like to get a better idea what the seemingly endless choices look like, stop by the Pella Windows and Doors showroom in Des Moines.
