Nearly every indoor activity – whether itrsquos for communication, entertainment or comfort — involves the use of energy. Fortunately, energy-efficient replacement windows can help you save on your monthly energy costs, and we at Renewal by Andersenreg of Omaha and Lincoln would like to share with you how this is possible.
The Effects of Inefficient Windows
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, an average household spends 42 of its monthly energy consumption on space heating with another 6 spent on air conditioning, both of which add up to nearly half of the monthly energy consumption. If one can somehow cut the energy spent on heating, imagine the accumulated savings it can generate.
The problem with traditional windows is the glazing. Glass is a naturally conductive material that allows heat transfer. Traditional windows with single panel glazing allow heat to pass through easily, which results in significant heat loss during winter and heat gain during summer. This increases the need for your heating and air conditioning systems to compensate, which leads to an increase in energy consumption.
How Renewal by Andersen Replacement Windows Can Help
All Renewal by Andersen window replacement styles come standard with High-Performancetrade Low-E4reg glass. The dual panel design eliminates contact between interior and exterior surfaces, which dramatically reduces heat conduction and helps keep heat where you need it: indoors during cold days and outdoors during hot days. Combined with the insulating properties of our exclusive Fibrexreg material frames, you can expect exceptional energy efficiency at all times.
Our High-Performance Low-E4 glass also feature low emissivity (Low-E) coatings that block a second source of heat during summer: sunlight. Additionally, it also blocks ultraviolet (UV) rays that cause fading in fabrics and furniture. Combined with our precise installation methods and industry-leading warranty coverage, you can expect long-term energy savings and a comfortable indoor environment all year round.
