HOW WINDOWS AFFECT YOUR HOME’S ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Your windows don’t actually consume or reduce energy by themselves, but they do still influence your home’s overall energy consumption. If you buy the right products, you’ll see that it’s faster to achieve your desired indoor climate while decreasing your energy use at the same time.

How Windows Affect Your Homes Energy Efficiency

As the premier source of Chesterfield doors and windows, Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis wants to shed light on how windows affect your energy consumption at home. Here are some of them:

Heating and Cooling Your Home Naturally

Efficient windows heat your interiors in winter and keep them cool in summer. The secret lies in layers of spectrally selective Low-E coating, a technology that reflects certain rays of the sun. They keep the unpleasant ones out and let the desirable ones in.

In addition, double glazing boosts the insulating properties of your replacement windows in Chesterfield, MO. Inside the optimal width of air space between the two panes of glass, an argon gas blend significantly keeps the flow of heat transfer to a minimum.

Using a framing material that has an exceptional insulating value, you can expect your windows to prevent your indoor heat and conditioned air from escaping.

Using the Sun to Displace Artificial Lighting

When your windows promote plenty of daylighting, they help illuminate your interior spaces naturally. Apart from giving you wonderful outdoor views, daylight illumination reduces the need to switch on your lights. Otherwise, you might have to use artificial lighting to brighten your room even when the sun is up. In the process, you use electricity unnecessarily.

Minimizing Air Leaks

While most windows allow a hardly noticeable amount of air leakage, having a tight seal keeps them from being drafty. When the seal fails or the frame deteriorates and develop gaps, air infiltration gets out of control— and so does your energy consumption.

As the leading Chesterfield, Missouri, windows company, we custom build our products to weatherproof your home for a long period. We optimize our innovative technologies, including stainless steel spacers, dual sealing, and Fibrex® framing material to keep the chance of air leakage to a minimum. That said, many factors have to be considered to ensure your window replacement can boost your home’s energy performance to the fullest.

"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!"
