Published on

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 made today can offer a lot more bonuses that the one’s currently installed. Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been a lot of developments 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 searching for energy efficient replacement windows? Here’s a little list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Calgary put together for you to think through:

  1. Pick the right glass. There are a few pane options 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 gives you almost double the insulation that single-pane does, and if you want even more energy efficiency, we have triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the benefits you want from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and improved 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 every year to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help make sure your products are installed the right way.

  3. Coat accordingly. With the number of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass coatings available, you can make certain that your new replacement windows are protecting your home properly. And when you strategically select your glass coatings, your energy efficiency can see improvement. 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.

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