How to find energy efficient replacement windows in Mankato, Minnesota

Coming to the realization that it’s time to start doing research for replacement windows is something that most 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 currently have. Sure, they may not be 40 year old windows, but there have been numerous improvements even in the last 10-15 years that can help you improve your home’s energy efficiency. So what should you look for when you’re looking for energy efficient replacement windows? Here’s a little list that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Mankato put together for you to think through:

  1. Select the right glass. There are a few pane choices for you to consider when selecting replacement windows, but the most important thing to take note of 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 better energy efficiency, there is triple-pane glass.

  2. Professional installation. To truly get the benefits you want from your replacement windows—like energy efficiency and superior comfort—proper installation is crucial. 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 variety of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass coatings available, you can make sure that your new replacement windows are guarding your home correctly. And when you strategically pick your glass coatings, your energy efficiency can see enhancement. From coatings that reflect heat in the summer to others that block harmful UV rays, one of the specialists at Pella Windows and Doors can help you find the best coating for your replacement windows.
