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.

"Our installation team was top notch. While they said they were sending a "team"to install 21 windows it was only two people. But I see why, the process was seamless and everything was done correctly and consistently with the leadership of Clayton. We had a tiny problem with one window within a week of installation and their response time was prompt to remedy the situation. Our windows are beautiful. Our home is warm and cozy."

"Love the windows and patio door. We want to finish the whole house when we can financially. We give Anderson and employees, especially the sales rep Mike that came to our house, the highest rating. Mike was knowledgeable and courteous. Also not high pressure."
