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 developed
today can offer 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
great number of advancements 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 in the market for energy
efficient replacement windows? Here’s a little list that the
team at McComb Window & Door in Lafayette put together for you to think
- Choose the right
glass. There are a few pane options for you to
consider when looking 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, there
is triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the performance
you desire from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and superior comfort—proper installation is essential.
Even the greatest
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 variety of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass
coatings available, you can ensure that your
new replacement windows are guarding your home properly.

your energy efficiency can see enhancement.
