Investing in new windows can help improve your home’s aesthetics and functionality. But this is not the only benefit you’ll get from this investment. By making certain choices in your window replacement, you can also live a greener lifestyle.
1. Newer windows allow for better access to natural light. Going green means taking measures that reduce your energy usage. You can easily achieve this by investing in newer, bigger windows. Renewal by Andersen® of Southwest Missouri offers high-quality replacement windows with High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass. This advanced glass allows plenty of natural light to stream into your home – minus the heat gain – so you no longer have to rely as much on expensive artificial lighting.
2. Window replacement prevents significant energy loss. Older, failing windows typically have gaps and openings that make it easy for drafts to leak inside your home while allowing costly energy to leak outside. Our energy-efficient windows use exclusive Fibrex® material for their sashes and frames.
This excellent composite offers the remarkable durability and insulating properties of wood, and combines them with the low-maintenance value of vinyl. Fibrex creates an airtight seal in your new windows to prevent air leakage and considerable energy loss. Because Fibrex is composed mostly of reclaimed wood fibers, it’s one of the most eco-friendly window materials available today.
3. Getting new windows helps lower cooling bills. Our windows not only improve daylighting, but lower heat transfer in your home as well. It makes this possible with its low-emissivity coatings, which help keep your spaces cooler and more comfortable in summer. By naturally cooling your home, these windows can keep your air conditioning costs to a minimum.
