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.

"Renewal was fantastic! They kept you in the loop from ordering to installation. They informed you at every step of the process of what was happening. The installers were kind, courteous, and professional. Everything was cleaned up after the installation. It was as if they hadn't been there except to see your beautiful new windows. I highly recommend them."

"3rd time using RBA for window replacement. Again, a very positive experience, the windows are great, the installation was done right, the professionalism was apparent from start to finish. Still have existing windows to be replaced and will definitely use RBA again to do it in the future."

"Renewal by Andersen was a good experience for us in replacement of our windows. From the initial meeting with the sales representative, Leslie, through the waiting period for manufacturing, and then to the installment process, our experience was excellent! Communication is key for me and we were kept informed and updated as our windows were being ordered and manufactured. Calls to update us on the installation process were welcomed and appreciated. They know how much is too much so they don't pester you with unnecessary contact. We love our new windows!!! Did I say that already??😂 We can tell a major difference in reduced Street noise and also the temperature at our windows. Excellent company, highly recommend!!"
