How to find energy efficient replacement windows in Victoria, B.C
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 offer a lot more perks 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 increase your home’s energy efficiency. So what should you look for when you’re searching for energy efficient replacement windows? Here’s a short list that the team at Pella Windows & Doors - Victoria in Victoria put together for you to read:
- Select the right
glass. There are a few pane choices 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 better energy efficiency, there
is triple-pane glass.
- Professional installation. To truly get the performance
you expect from your replacement windows—like energy
efficiency and greater comfort—proper installation is critical.
Even the greatest
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
certain that your products are installed properly.
- Coat accordingly. With the number of Low-E (Low-Emissivity) glass coatings available, you can make certain that your new replacement windows are defending your home properly. And when you strategically select your glass coatings, your energy efficiency can see an uptick. From coatings that reflect heat in the summer to others that halt harmful UV rays, one of the experts at Pella Windows & Doors - Victoria can help you find the ideal coating for your replacement windows.
