Improper window maintenance is just as bad as neglecting to routinely clean your windows. That’s why Renewal by Andersen® of Knoxville, your local window contractor, compiled a guide on bad window maintenance habits to avoid.
How often should you replace your windows? In general, well-maintained high-quality residential windows should last 15 to 20 years. If they’re almost 20-years-old, you should start planning a window replacement.
Of course, not all windows last as long as their estimated lifespans. Factors such as the window frame material, the frequency of maintenance, and your area’s climate can shorten their lifespan.
How can you tell if it’s time to get a window replacement? In this post, our window contractors at Renewal by Andersen® of Knoxville list the warning signs you need to keep an eye out for.[Read more…]
Don’t underestimate how much energy you can save by installing replacement windows.

Replacing your old windows can significantly enhance your home’s appearance and increase its energy efficiency. Once your new casement windows have been installed, you’ll immediately notice an improvement in your home’s comfort and you may experience energy savings, as well. However, you have to consider a lot of things when purchasing new windows.
Your window and home’s energy efficiency have an impact on the environment. With old, leaky windows or improperly installed units, your heating and cooling system needs to work harder to keep you comfortable. The more natural resources you use, the higher your family’s carbon footprint is.
