Pella offers energy-efficient replacement products to help homeowners reduce their energy costs, including the new Pella® 350 Series window and patio door line.

"This is an ideal time of year to really evaluate if your home is suffering from energy loss," said Eric Glorioso, sales manager, Pella Windows and Doors of Columbus. "Before we experience the Midwest's extremely cold temperatures, replacing windows and doors is a cost-effective solution to achieving instantly greater energy-efficiency for a home."

Window and door inspection checklist

The first step in preparing your home for winter is by doing an inspection to check for potential maintenance issues. Tips for checking your windows and doors include:

  • Inspect the interior and exterior finishes around windows and doors for signs of paint flaking and peeling.
  • Look at the weather stripping around all doors and windows. Re-attach any loose portions and replace portions that are ripped or torn.
  • Moisture and condensation between panes of insulating glass can occur when the seal between the panes of glass fails. This fogging may be a sign that a replacement is needed.
  • Look for signs of air leakage. Improperly installed windows or doors which permit air leakage can decrease energy efficiency.

The Pella 350 Series window and patio doors line is an ideal fit for energy-conscious homeowners looking to reduce energy costs, Glorioso said.
