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.

"Renewal by Andersen of St Louis is an outstanding company. Our third phase of replacing windows was accomplished flawlessly, just like the first two phases. All interactions, from ordering to installation, were very professional. The installers were knowledgeable and went above and beyond to solve an issue when a minor structural problem was encountered."
