Energy loss caused by inefficient and drafty windows is costing you more than you think. The heat that escapes from or enters your home through windows can make you crank up the AC, resulting in higher energy consumption. Fortunately, getting new windows can help you save energy and reduce your energy bills.
Here, we discuss how window replacement can help you go green.
Boosting Energy Efficiency
Energy loss resulting from residential buildings, commercial real estate and industrial operations accounts for 40% of the nation’s energy consumption. With the new Renewal by Andersen® windows, going green won’t be too hard. Our Fibrex® composite windows are resistant to cracks, corrosion and rot. They also have airtight window seals that keep outdoor heat out of your home. Fibrex is made mostly of wood fibers that have been recycled, making it one of the most eco-friendly window materials on the market today.
It can be better for your home’s ventilation if you switch to a different type of window. New windows are also less likely to get stuck, which makes it easier to open or close them when needed. You can get more airflow if you change your double-hung windows to casement windows. Natural ventilation is helpful in reducing heat inside your home – which can also be beneficial to your health.
Promoting Greener Maintenance
People who have new windows don’t need as much water and cleaning solution to clean the windows. Furthermore, since these new windows are more durable and resistant to corrosion, you don’t have to rely much on chemicals that may give off fumes or affect the plants surrounding your home.
