Ways Your New Windows Help You Go Green

As homeowners continue to seek sustainable solutions for their homes, a variety of options have emerged. This includes replacing your old windows. Experts say having them upgraded makes your home not only eco-friendly, but also energy-efficient. Here’s why:

Ways Your New Windows Help You Go Green

New Windows Need Less Maintenance

Maintaining your old windows may require the application of a new paint or coating job that, when spilled on the ground, could contribute to ground pollution. Rest assured, modern windows are fairly low maintenance and need nothing beyond clean warm water to keep them dirt-free.

New Windows Have Fewer Concerns

It can be noted how old windows tend to have poor insulation, which puts more strain on the HVAC system. This practice increases your home’s electric consumption. On the other hand, new windows are designed for better insulation, helping reduce your home’s environmental impact.

New Windows Have Effective Features

Aside from having fewer issues, newer windows also have significant features geared towards going green. Newer frames like Fibrex® are designed with low-emissivity (low-E) glass that reduces the amount of heat coming from the outside, helping your HVAC systems not work double. This means upgrading to windows with multiple panes and protective coatings is a huge step up from old, rusty units.

New Windows Minimize Waste

Many homeowners may not be aware of it, but a huge portion of today’s custom windows is made of recycled material. This means new windows no longer use as many raw materials as before, reducing the amount of waste that simply ends up in landfills.

"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!!"
