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.
Here’s a basic guide for buying new windows.
The frame material affects the look, durability and insulation of the window. For instance, wood frames offer good insulation but they are high-maintenance. Renewal by Andersen® windows feature Fibrex® material, which blocks thermal transfer nearly 700-times better than aluminum. This material that’s made from reclaimed wood is also twice as strong as vinyl.
Glazing and Glass
Some window glazes and glass offer better insulation, visible light transmittance and condensation resistance than others. For your window replacement, you’d want to choose glass with Low-E coating as it’s energy-efficient and blocks harmful ultraviolet rays.
The style of your new windows can affect their insulating capabilities. For instance, more air can escape from double-hung and sliding windows compared to casement windows.
Cleaning and Maintenance
At Renewal by Andersen, all our windows need to stay looking new is routine cleaning. Our units are guaranteed not to rot, decay, blister, pit, flake, peel or corrode. They also don’t support the growth of mold, mildew, fungus and other microorganisms.
Windows must be installed according to the manufacturer’s specifications to keep the warranty valid. When you choose Renewal by Andersen, you don’t have to worry about installation issues. Our team will handle every aspect of your window replacement for you.
When shopping for windows, look for the National Fenestration Rating Council and the ENERGY STAR® label. With energy-efficient windows, your HVAC system doesn’t need to work too hard to keep you comfy indoors, resulting in lower energy costs.
