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 developed
today can offer a lot more bonuses
that the one’s you’re replacing.
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 looking for energy
efficient replacement windows? Here’s a short list that the
team at Pella Windows and Doors in Mt. Pleasant put together for you to consider:
- Select the right
glass. There are a few pane choices for you to
consider when searching for replacement

want even better energy efficiency, there
is triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the perks
you expect from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and superior comfort—proper installation is critical.
Even the greatest
window or door is only as good as its installation. A Pella

- Coat accordingly. With
the variety of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass
coatings available, you can make certain that your
new replacement windows are protecting your home correctly.
And when you strategically choose your glass coatings,
your energy efficiency can see enhancement.
