Replacing your bad windows in a timely manner can solve your home’s energy efficiency woes in many ways. You may not realize it, but keeping them affects your indoor comfort and increases your heating and cooling costs.
If you ask Renewal by Andersen® of Atlanta, here are the undisputed benefits of tackling a necessary window replacement project sooner rather than later:
According to ENERGY STAR®, high-performance windows are key elements of any home’s complete thermal enclosure system. With the right glazing system with a low-conductance framing material, your windows can minimize the transfer of heat from inside to outside.
Moreover, a well-thought-out window design can contribute to thermal bridging reduction without sacrificing durability. A great case in point is the construction of our Fibrex® material. When you see its cross section during your in-home consultation, our representative will explain how its ingenious design keeps thermal bridging to a minimum.
Reduced Air Infiltration
Any experienced window replacement contractor would say that a typical American home contains about a half-mile of gaps and cracks. These crevices are behind walls and around windows and doors. Replacing your leaky units can certainly move the needle in energy efficiency.
Minimized Solar Heat Gain
Windows reinforced with a spectrally selective, multi-layer Low-E coating can block most of the sun’s heat without affecting the clarity and color of visible light. During the hottest months, Nature is less likely to turn your space into a furnace. By keeping the room temperature to a minimum, especially at the height of summer, your air conditioner won’t have to work too hard. To achieve excellent results, our Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass is your best bet.
The biggest edge of modern replacement windows over their old-fashioned counterparts is superior daylighting. Outdated glazing lacks the technology to prevent unwanted solar heat gain, increase thermal insulation and admit plenty of natural light all at once. The more sunshine your home gets, the less it will depend on artificial lighting.
