How Replacement Windows Improve Your Energy Efficiency

From modern picture windows to classic casement windows, no other home improvement project can have as big an impact on your home’s energy efficiency as window replacement. Doors and windows account for more than 30% of a home’s heat loss during colder seasons and up to 25% of your cool air loss in the summer.

How Replacement Windows Improve Your Energy Efficiency

With this much at stake, it’s important to choose your window replacement products carefully. Take your time to look into the different ratings and labels of every type of window material to determine the ones best suited for your needs. Here are some of the ways your replacement windows can help improve your energy efficiency.

All or Nothing

Doing your windows installation one at a time might be more budget-friendly at the start, but this is actually a bad idea in terms of efficiency. The energy savings you stand to get by replacing your windows are better and more pronounced when you replace all windows at once. This route might be restricted by budget limitations, but if you’re trying to decide whether to install replacement windows piece by piece or all at the same time, energy experts recommend doing the latter over the former.

Look at the Panes

Modern replacement windows often come in many different styles and designs. One decision you might face is whether it’s better to go with a single-pane or a double-pane window. The answer depends largely on the specific needs of your home so it’s better to discuss window options with a professional to get the best results.

Talk to the Pros

Finally, you can maximize the value of getting energy-efficient windows by ensuring that they are installed by skilled and experienced contractors. Poorly installed windows can often become more problematic than beneficial, negating all the advantages of getting green windows in the first place.

"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!!"
