Did you know that old and failing windows can account for up to 30% of your home’s annual heating and cooling expenses? You should consider getting new windows for this reason. Not only do they help maintain your home’s thermal comfort and keep energy costs to a minimum, but they can also help you go green.
1. New windows use sustainable materials. The fact is that some building materials like the ones used for window frames can end up in a landfill because they are non-recyclable. This won’t be an issue when you turn to Renewal by Andersen® of Northwest Ohio for your replacement window options. We use our Fibrex® composite for sashes and frames, blending reclaimed wood fibers and thermoplastic polymers to create some of the most eco-friendly replacement windows available today.
Our Fibrex composite can offer the strength and superior insulating properties of wood, plus the low-maintenance performance of vinyl. Windows will keep an airtight seal, helping prevent air leakage and significant energy loss. They also offer the added benefit of being impervious to chipping, cracking, warping,and rot.
2. They are designed with energy performance in mind. It’s not just the framing material that allows new windows to contribute to greater energy efficiency -the glass package included with them also helps. Renewal by Andersen windows come with advanced High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass, which reduces heat transfer to your home, keeping it cooler and more comfortable in the summer – all while lowering your air conditioning costs. What’s more, they can protect your interiors from sun damage by blocking ultraviolet (UV) light.
3. New windows help illuminate your home naturally. The high-performance glass in Renewal by Andersen windows lets plenty of natural light into your home, only minus the heat. This means you won’t need to turn on artificial lighting to illuminate your home during the daytime, translating into lower energy bills.
