Coming to the realization that it’s
time to start searching for replacement windows is something that many homeowners have
to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows developed
today can provide 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 be on the
lookout for when you’re looking for energy
efficient replacement windows? Here’s a short list that the
team at McComb Window & Door in Muncie put together for you to read:
- Select the right
glass. There are a few pane options for you to
consider when selecting replacement
windows, but the most important thing to remember 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 more energy efficiency, consider 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 critical.
Even the best-performing
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 the
- Coat accordingly. With
the number of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass
coatings available, you can make certain that your
new replacement windows are guarding your home correctly.
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 halt harmful UV rays, one of
the specialists at McComb Window & Door can help you find
the right coating for your replacement windows.
