Going Green Tips for Homeowners

You can make your home greener by changing a few things about it, including replacing your old and leaky windows and patio doors. By making your home more eco-friendly, you reduce its carbon footprint and help not just your household, but the community as well by saving energy and money.

Here are a few suggestions:

Replace Your Regular Light Bulbs

Sometimes, incandescent light bulbs are pretty. They are also cheap. But if you spend a bit more, you can get light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs, which are a lot more energy-efficient, provide more light and last longer. In the end, you’re actually saving money by choosing LED instead of the cheaper incandescent bulbs.

Switch to a Programmable Thermostat

A programmable thermostat monitors your indoor temperature so it can make minute adjustments to make your home more comfortable. You can also set the thermostat to lower the temperature when you’re not at home or when it’s time for bed. It’s not just an energy-saver, but it’s also more convenient.

Replace Drafty Windows and Doors

Old, single-pane windows are notorious for being inefficient. They allow drafts in and also let heated air escape, so you’re probably paying double for your HVAC’s energy use. Replace them with energy-efficient multiple pane models from Renewal by Andersen®. Do the same with your patio doors. Renewal by Andersen’s sliding patio doors form a tight seal to keep warm air in and drafts outside. In the summer, they allow in plenty of light while also preventing heat transfer.

Replace Old Appliances

Old appliances are known for using more energy than newer appliances with the ENERGY STAR® seal. You can save more money in the long term by replacing your old appliances with energy-efficient models. You don’t have to replace every appliance all at once. Start with what you can afford.

"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!!"
