More and more homeowners are searching for ways on how they can reduce their carbon footprint. Making certain changes in your home can help reduce your household’s overall impact on the environment. Investing in energy-efficient windows will significantly boost the appeal, value, comfort, and sustainability of your home.
Here’s how energy-efficient replacement windows can help you go green.
Reduce Your Heating Costs
Outdated single-pane windows will not help in preventing outdoor temperatures from affecting your home. On the other hand, newer multipane windows can reduce your heating costs by up to 15 percent. Windows with multiple panes of glass can boost your home’s energy efficiency and help cut down your utility bills.
Improve Your Home’s Energy Efficiency
Energy-efficient windows feature low-emissivity or Low-E coatings that help minimize heat loss in winter and prevents heat from entering your living spaces during summer. This coating helps in keeping your home comfortable all year round. Another key feature of these windows is low-conductivity frames. At Renewal by Andersen® of Portland, our windows are made from Fibrex® material, a reclaimed wood twice as strong as vinyl. When you choose this material for your window replacement project, you will get windows that are incredibly strong, appealing, long-lasting and low maintenance.
Become Less Dependent on Artificial Lighting
New windows will allow more natural light into your living spaces. As a result, you won’t have to use artificial lighting as much. The less energy you use, the lower your carbon footprint and utility bills will be.
