Optimizing the amount of sunlight in your home can improve your overall comfort in many ways. Daylighting offers natural illumination of your interior, which helps set the mood in your living spaces and decrease your need for electricity. In addition, exposing yourself to sunlight is good for your health.
At Renewal by Andersen® of Portland, we think of daylighting when developing our products. We believe every home should make the most of the natural wonders of the outdoors for better home design and energy efficiency.
To maximize daylight using your replacement windows in Tigard, follow these tips:
Think about Your Room
Each of your rooms have a unique function, which is why the light intensity you should have in every space is different. For instance, you might need a brighter light in the kitchen to create a positive and energizing environment for preparing and cooking food. On the other hand, dark light is more suitable in your bedroom so you can enjoy a calm and relaxing atmosphere.
Be mindful of your room to pick the right replacement windows in Beaverton, OR. Fortunately, our array of window styles is customizable to meet your room’s specific needs, as well.
Choose the Right Style of Window
Windows come in an array of styles; some are more suitable for daylighting than others. Generally, a good daylighting window has expansive glass with little to no grills, to let more light in.
We offer a variety of window styles to help you optimize natural light. Our gliding windows are naturally wide, while our bay windows are designed for large openings. Our casement and picture windows not only let you enjoy your outdoor scenery and improve your ventilation – they also offer a great passageway for sunlight to enter your home.
Have an Energy-Efficient Glass
Letting the light in is one thing, keeping the heat at bay is another. In daylighting, what you want inside your home is visible light; however, the damaging infrared and ultraviolet rays may also enter without an energy-efficient window glass. If you let this happen, you can’t control heat transfer in your house and this may cause your valuables to fade quickly.
Our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass options are the standard on our replacement windows in West Linn. This innovative glass technology absorbs less IR light to keep your home cool in summer, and prevents interior heat loss to preserve a warm indoor climate in winter. This next-generation glass also blocks excessive UV light to protect your home’s interior. It does all of this without affecting visible light.
