    It is because the vinyl windows in your last house had a better insulated glass package..
    Pella and Anderson neither one offer much of a IG Unit.R4 is as good as they go. That is two layers of double strength glass, one coating of lo e film, and argon gas with a PPG intercept spacer.
    INMHO they are living on the name from the good ole days..

    I installed Pella replacement windows in my old house. They were much better than what I replaced. When I moved in to my current home, the previous owner had installed Marvin vinyl replacement windows, they are much better. Easy to clean, low maintenance, etc. Must have cost him an arm and a leg...
