Outdated windows can make it harder to cool or heat your home, increasing your energy costs. They can also be responsible for up to 25 percent of your home’s heat loss during winter. Replacing these windows with newer, energy-efficient units can boost the aesthetic appeal, value and comfort of your home.
Here’s how window replacement can make your home more energy-efficient.
Features of Energy-Efficient Windows
Replacing a single-pane window with a dual-pane one can lower heating costs by up to 15 percent. Windows with Low-E coatings can prevent heat and conditioned air from escaping your home, helping maintain year-round comfort. The less energy you consume, the less greenhouse gas your home produces.
Certain frame materials can reduce a window’s energy efficiency. At Renewal by Andersen® our windows feature our long-lasting Fibrex® material framing, which is twice as strong as vinyl. This material isn’t only energy-efficient but also guaranteed not to chip, warp or fade.
Get a Brighter and Fresher Home
Choosing an energy-efficient product for your window replacement can reduce your dependence on artificial lighting. Windows with expansive glass areas, such as bay and picture, can allow more natural light into your home. Did you know that natural lighting can make you more productive and improve your mood? It can also make your home look larger.
