ALL ABOUT DAYLIGHTING PART 1: ITS CONCEPT AND BENEFITS

Sunlight can provide a variety of benefits. Many people, however, choose to spend majority of their time indoors. This is why Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis recommends installing windows in your home that optimize daylighting.

Daylighting Part 1 Concept Benefits

Daylighting is the process of making the most of the natural light coming into your homes. It can lessen your reliance on artificial lighting for more energy savings. Besides being cost-efficient, it also provides many aesthetic and health benefits.

In this first installment of our two-part blog, your trusted Chesterfield, Missouri, windows company discusses in detail the benefits of daylighting.

Promotes Energy Conservation and Efficiency

At least 20% of your home’s energy consumption comes from electric lighting. Since lights discharge heat, reducing their consumption can lessen the workload of your air-conditioning system. By implementing a daylighting strategy, you can save on energy costs, while increasing indoor comfort for your family.

To make the most of sunlight properly, have us install our replacement windows in Chesterfield, MO. They come st andard with our innovative Fibrex® frame material, which has inherent superior insulating properties. We combine it with our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass that can block the sun’s harmful UV rays. This can optimize natural light into your home, without you worrying about sunburn or furniture damage.

Daylighting can also help conserve environmental resources. While power plants burn coal to produce electricity, the widespread use of daylighting can conserve fossil fuels. This can also reduce greenhouse gases and pollution.

Enhances Aesthetic Appeal and Overall Value of Your Home

Daylighting can be most effective when properly incorporated into the overall design of your home. This can make your home’s interior brighter and warmer. The glass panes of our Chesterfield doors and windows can let in natural daylight, provide adequate ventilation, and give you an unobstructed view of your outdoor scenery.

Improves Health and Productivity

Studies show that day-lit environments provide mental and visual stimulation. Natural light also contains substantial amount of short-wavelength light rays, which support your circadian sleep-wake cycle. It can also increase serotonin production, which reduces stress and promotes a greater sense of well-being. It helps in the production of Vitamin D in your body, as well.

"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!!"
