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.

"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!!"
