Coming to the realization that it’s
time to start searching 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 perks
that the one’s you’re replacing.
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 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 Evansville put together for you to think

glass. There are a few pane options for you to
consider when searching for 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, we have triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the performance
you want 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

year to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help make sure your products are installed the
- Coat accordingly. With

coatings available, you can make sure that your
new replacement windows are defending your home appropriately.

your energy efficiency can see an uptick.
