5 WAYS REPLACEMENT WINDOWS BOOST ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Replacement windows these days are specifically designed to lessen energy consumption and protect your home from the elements. Here are five ways replacement units can improve energy efficiency in your home:

5 Ways Replacement Windows Boost Energy Efficiency

  1. Choice of framing material. Window frames conduct heat. The U-factor measures the rate of heat loss of a unit. Those with a lower U-factor reflect solar heat better. If you have windows like these, your home maintains a consistent temperature throughout the day.
  1. Glass coating. Glass is a major window component because it allows natural light to pass through. With constant exposure to sunlight, the glass is covered with special low-E coating that controls heat transfer.
  1. Window placement. Where you put your windows is important in improving energy efficiency in your home. When a Chesterfield, Missouri, windows company like Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis installs south-facing windows, these can collect more heat during winter. North-facing windows allow for more daylight. Knowing where to place your windows can be very helpful in reducing your use of your heating or cooling systems.
  1. Type of window. Different window styles have lower air leakage rates. For example, casement windows don’t leak air as much as other types because the sashes are pressed against the frame when closed. By installing fixed windows facing north, you get more outdoor views without compromising energy efficiency.
  1. Installation. For a window to be energy-efficient, it should be installed following specific manufacturer instructions to the letter. After the units are put in, our experts will make sure that your replacement windows are tightly sealed to avoid air leaks.

With the right combination of the factors above, your replacement windows can help you save money on monthly utility bills. Make a wise investment and have energy-efficient windows installed today.

"Everyone I worked with from setting up the initial appointment to the salesman to the installers to everyone who checked on us and kept us updated on the progress of the windows was courteous, professional, and responsive. There’s always someone who is willing to answer your question without jumping through hoops which is rare these days! The installers were on time, did a beautiful job, cleaned up the space better than I expected, and even helped me with some blinds I couldn’t remove and fixed my squeaky front door! I’ve already recommended Renewal by Anderson to friends!"
