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 offer 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 improvements even
in the last 10-15 years that can help you increase 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 McComb Window & Door in Indianapolis put together for you to consider:
- Pick 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, consider triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the benefits
you desire from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and improved comfort—proper installation is critical.
Even the highest-quality
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 ensure your products are installed properly.
- Coat accordingly. With
the variety of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass
coatings available, you can make sure that your
new replacement windows are protecting 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 pros at McComb Window & Door can help you find
the best coating for your replacement windows.
