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.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
