Replace Single-Pane Windows

Single-pane windows don’t provide as much protection against outdoor elements compared to multi-pane units. At Renewal by Andersen®, we offer double-pane windows that can increase your property value, improve its aesthetic appeal, and boost your home’s energy efficiency. Our windows are also available with our High Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass, which is 70 percent more energy-efficient in summer and 45 percent more energy-efficient in winter. This means your HVAC system doesn’t need to work as hard to keep you comfortable, reducing your heating and cooling costs. 

Upgrade Your Exterior Doors

You must take your time when choosing exterior doors. Always consider a door’s energy performance ratings as this will let you know how well the unit conserves energy in your home. Like our windows, our doors can also come with energy-efficient glass packages. When you invest in our patio doors, you can enjoy lower monthly bills and a brighter, more peaceful home. 

Control Your Ventilation

Energy-efficient homes are typically tightly sealed, meaning they require controlled ventilation. With controlled, mechanical ventilation, you can minimize indoor air pollution, create a healthier atmosphere for your home, and air moisture infiltration. Install exhaust fans in your bathrooms and kitchen to remove excess indoor moisture.

Address air leakage can help ensure you’re not wasting energy. Eliminate air leaks by choosing replacement windows and doors from Renewal by Andersen of Portland.
