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.

"Very pleased with installation of six windows and a ProVia entry door. I love the look of the windows and door. I am pleased that my wife is thrilled with the look of the door. She is very pleased that the bronze color fits in well with the color of the brick."

"I just had my Renewal by Andersen windows installed and couldn’t be happier, the entire process went very smoothly. The windows are high quality and look great. But the installers Roy, Zack and Jordan were the stars, they introduced themselves upon arrival walked me thru everything they were going to do and when they finished took me to each window to make sure I was completely satisfied. They were clean and courteous and I would definitely recommend and have them work in my home again."

"Wonderful experience with knowledgeable, competent employees. We had Andersen windows in a previous house & didn’t even consider anything else this time. After replacing our patio door almost two years ago, we replaced all our windows this year. What a difference over builder-grade windows, especially in the really cold temperatures we’ve had this year. Andersen windows may be a little more expensive than other brands, but they are top quality."
