Coming to the realization that it’s
time to start looking for replacement windows is something that nearly all 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 you currently have.
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 in the market for energy
efficient replacement windows? Here’s a short list that the
team at Pella Windows and Doors in Petoskey put together for you to think
- 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 take note
of 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 better energy efficiency, there
is 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 crucial.
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 make
certain that your products are installed properly.
- Coat accordingly. With
the number of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass
coatings available, you can ensure that your
new replacement windows are defending your home appropriately.
And when you strategically select 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 ideal coating for your replacement windows.

as a primer for choosing your replacement windows,
