The right doors and windows can help make your home greener while providing benefits such as energy savings, natural lighting and indoor comfort. Window replacement company Renewal by Andersen® of Denver shares tips on how to choose environmentally-friendly doors and windows.
Choose Energy-Efficient Doors and Windows
The less energy your home consumes, the less impact it makes on the use of fossil-based fuel used to generate electricity on the grid. Windows and doors are considered energy efficient if they prevent heat leaks without compromising their other functions. Heat can leak through the windows in many ways: air leaks through the frames, improper fit between frame and sash and—since glass is a naturally conductive material—through single panel glazing.
Renewal by Andersen replacement windows and patio doors address these problems with precise craftsmanship, proper installation and energy efficient features, such as double-pane High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. The airspace between two glass panels prevents heat from leaking through the glass itself, complementing the natural insulation of our Fibrex® material window frames. All our door and window replacement options are certified by ENERGY STAR®.
Pick Doors and Windows With Long Life Cycles
Remodeling is a major source of landfill waste. While disposal services are engaging in proper waste disposal practices, they can’t keep up when homeowners have their doors and windows replaced too often. We often have had to replace off-the-shelf windows that are barely 10 years old. Just imagine the amount of waste this would create over time if all homes needed new windows every decade.
This is why Renewal by Andersen chose to offer replacement windows and patio doors that are engineered to last: not only does it cost less over its life cycle—especially when you factor in its low maintenance requirements—it also helps slow down the rate landfills get filled up. Our industry-leading limited warranty coverage helps make sure you get the most out of your replacement windows.
Opt for Responsibly Manufactured Doors and Windows
