How to find energy efficient replacement windows in El Paso, Texas

Coming to the realization that it’s time to start looking for replacement windows is something that many homeowners have to deal with at one point or another. Luckily, the windows developed today can provide a lot more bonuses that the one’s you’re replacing. Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been numerous developments even in the last 10-15 years that can help you boost your home’s energy efficiency. So what should you be on the lookout for when you’re looking for energy efficient replacement windows? Here’s a little list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors Southwest in El Paso put together for you to think through:

  1. 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 remember 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 greater energy efficiency, there is triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the performance you expect from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and greater comfort—proper installation is essential. Even the best-performing window or door is only as good as its installation. A Pella Expert InstallerSM, who is re-certified yearly to install Pella products, will lead your installation to help make sure your products are installed the right way.

  3. 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 correctly. And when you strategically pick your glass coatings, your energy efficiency can see improvement. From coatings that reflect heat in the summer to others that halt harmful UV rays, one of the pros at Pella Windows and Doors Southwest can help you find the ideal coating for your replacement windows.

These three tips work as a primer for choosing your replacement windows, but if you’d like to get a better idea what the variety of choices look like, stop by the Pella Windows and Doors Southwest showroom in El Paso.
