You may not realize how much energy you are losing due to old, inefficient and drafty windows until you realize your hydro bills have increased and you’re unsure why. It’s a good thing you can save energy and save on your monthly utility bills by getting new, energy-efficient windows.
Here are four ways that new windows can help you run your home more efficiently:
- Increased Energy Savings
You can reduce your home’s energy consumption by installing energy-efficient windows. When you replace your inefficient windows, your heating and cooling system will use less energy and last longer.
- Greater Comfort
In addition to keeping your family comfortable all year round, modern windows are extremely energy-efficient. It’s easier to maintain the desired temperature inside your home when these windows are equipped with low-E coatings and airtight frames.
- Reduced Condensation
High-performance windows, such as those made with Fibrex® frames, are better equipped to accommodate changes in weather conditions. Condensation is reduced as a result of this feature. (Keep in mind that even the highest quality windows will sometimes sweat due to relative humidity.) Moreover, replacement windows have spacers that allow air to flow freely between the panes of glass without affecting indoor temperatures.
- Less Fading
With energy-saving windows, you can let natural light into your home while reducing heat gain. Developed to filter harmful ultraviolet light, these windows protect your furniture and other materials inside your home from fading, even when constantly exposed to sunlight. If you’re decorating a new house, you’ll want to take this into consideration.
Keep in mind that energy-efficient windows are their most effective when properly installed by professionals. Renewal by Andersen of British Columbia are those professionals, providing exceptional customer service, the highest quality of materials, and the best value for your money.
