Temperatures can drop to freezing at night, and there’s the occasional snowfall. But aside from these, winters in Tennessee are generally mild. Still, you need to take measures that can ensure your home’s thermal comfort and energy efficiency won’t be affected. These include checking the overall condition of your windows and patio doors. Have your windows become drafty or foggy? This is an issue you wouldn’t want to ignore. Read on as Renewal by Andersen® of Knoxville, the Maryville, TN, area’s premier window and door company, explains why.
Reduced Thermal Comfort. The fact is that drafts and fogginess usually indicate that your insulated windows are already starting to decline. If you take a closer look at the frames, or the area around them, you may see gaps and cracks, which serve as the entry point for drafts. This may be caused by impact damage to the windows, rot or plain old age. Fogginess occurs for the same reason–broken window seals. Once the thermal performance of your windows have been compromised, cold air can easily leak into your home. This makes the temperature inside it inconsistent, not to mention unpleasant.
Increased Energy Costs. Drafty windows are one of the most common reasons for significant energy waste in most Tennessee homes. Because cold air keeps leaking into your home and creating cold spots, your HVAC system has to work harder to fill that thermal gap. The result? Living spaces that can’t be heated properly and evenly, leading to higher energy bills. And while there are a couple of ways to mitigate drafty or foggy windows, most of them are temporary. You’ll need to work with a trusted windows and replacement doors company for a more effective and longer lasting solution.
For Maryville, TN, homeowners, that will be Renewal by Andersen® of Knoxville. Our unmatched window replacement service will deal with this particular issue, ensuring that your home will stay comfortable and efficient not just in winter, but in every season. Our selection of replacement windows use Fibrex® a revolutionary composite material that offers the strength and insulating properties of wood, and the low-maintenance performance of vinyl.
Fibrex® is impervious to cracks, pitting, corrosion and rot. It also doesn’t warp when exposed to extreme weather and temperature. Windows made of this material are proven tough and resilient. But that’s not all–they keep an airtight seal that prevents drafts from entering your home. Pairing Fibrex with our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass will boost its thermal performance even further, translating to fewer numbers on your energy bills. This advanced glass option is also used in our replacement doors.
Of course, you’ll want windows that are not only efficient and draft-free, but visually appealing, as well. Renewal by Andersen® replacement windows can be customized in your choice of interior-color combination, grille pattern, style, and hardware finish. These options make it easier for you to match your new units with your home’s overall look.
