Are your home’s windows and doors driving up your bills right under your nose? Low-performance windows and doors may be costing you more than you think.
According to the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), “windows, doors and skylights may appear passive, but they’re always performing. High-performance products regulate the flow of heat and light that comes in and out of your home, keeping your electricity costs low.”
The opposite is also true: Just as high-performing windows and doors can save you money in the long run, low-performing windows and doors can increase your monthly expenses. For a solution that won’t break the bank, consider lowering your bills and upgrading to energy-efficient windows and doors from Renewal by Andersen® of Florida, the state’s premier destination for window and door replacement since 1996.
Read on to learn more about how energy-efficient products can work for you.
1. Dual-Pane Glass
The first element to consider when it comes to enhancing your window-related energy efficiency is the glass itself.
Single-paned windows aren’t designed to efficiently deflect sunlight or insulate your home. Dual-pane windows, however, can optimize your energy use at home thanks to the high-quality materials and insulating gas between the panes.
With an array of dual-pane windows on the market, Renewal by Andersen® of Florida recommends looking to ENERGY STAR to help you determine the exact model of window that’s best suited to your home and environment. ENERGY STAR is a government program that helps individuals make wise, energy-efficient choices when selecting products to purchase.
Their guidance can help you save. In fact, “installing ENERGY STAR-certified windows, doors and skylights can shrink energy bills – and carbon footprints – by an average of 12 percent nationwide, compared to non-certified products,” according to ENERGY STAR.
2. Durable Framing
If your window frames aren’t well insulated, they can easily crack or be penetrated by moisture, and they aren’t doing much in the way of providing you with optimal energy efficiency. You may want to consider looking into window frames made of a different material.
Renewal by Andersen® of Florida offers revolutionary Fibrex® material to ensure proper insulation. This material is vastly superior to vinyl and offers 700 times better insulation than aluminum.
3. Expert Installation
Don’t forget about proper window installation! Your home may be subject to all sorts of window-related drafts and leaks if your windows aren’t installed correctly, thereby decreasing your overall energy efficiency.
The team at Renewal by Andersen® of Florida not only offers customers like you revolutionary windows and doors for your home, but also provides unparalleled results in the form of exceptional customer service.
Between Renewal by Andersen® of Florida’s Fibrex® frames, High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass and the team’s seamless installation processes, you’ll experience optimized energy efficiency, enhanced savings and total home satisfaction.
