According to Remodeling Magazine‘s “Cost vs. Value” 2022 report, one can recoup as much as 68% of the cost of a window replacement project. The cost of window replacement is recouped through savings over its life span. Renewal by Andersen of Denver explains how you can save money with our replacement windows.
Energy-efficient replacement windows can help you save on your energy bills. To better explain this, let us first take a look at the energy envelope, an enclosure that consists of the roof, exterior walls and all the fenestrations – entry doors, skylights and windows. All of the components are insulated in one way or another. While the roof and exterior walls are insulated with fiberglass wool, recycled paper or expanding foam, fenestrations have insulated glass, which consists of two glass panels separated by an airspace.
With proper insulation, the energy envelope slows down thermal transfer and maintains more consistent temperatures for the occupants. This reduces the workload on the heating and cooling systems, which, in turn, reduces energy or fuel consumption and leads to savings. The lower workload also helps reduce the strain on the system, which may extend the HVAC system’s service life.
Window Cleaning and Maintenance Costs
Whether you prefer to hire window cleaning professionals or clean your own windows, you’ll have to spend money to do it. With the latter, it means you’ll have to spend money on cleaning products, paint, tools, maybe even safety equipment if you’re cleaning upper-story windows. On top of that, you’ll also need to set aside a day or two to accomplish the task.
Investing in low-maintenance replacement windows eliminates the need to spend money on any such equipment, let alone hiring professionals. Renewal by Andersen replacement windows, for example, are very much like vinyl windows in that all they need to stay clean is water from a garden hose, clean microfiber cloths for wiping, and mild dish detergent for stubborn dirt.
