Carbon emissions, plastic waste and poor outdoor air quality are some of the issues that affect the environment right now. As homeowners, what can you do to help the environment, no matter how small? You can take little steps such as utilizing natural light, minimizing energy consumption, opting for renewable energy or even shutting off unnecessary appliances. But did you know that replacing your old windows also helps you go green?
In today’s post, French doors and windows contractor Renewal by Andersen® of New Jersey, explains how getting new replacement windows help you go green.
Why Opt for Green Windows?
Aside from the environmental benefits, installing new replacement windows can reduce your heating and cooling costs by around 15%. To put that into perspective, that’s around $2,000 worth of savings across a window’s lifespan. Our windows come with Low-E® coating that maximizes your home’s energy efficiency by preventing heat loss during the winter and keeping your home cool during the summer. These windows give you the best of both worlds by keeping your utility costs low while keeping your home comfortable.
At Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey, we offer the best windows and doors on the market. Most of all, our window frames feature our patented Fibrex® material which gives you the durability of wood frames along with the low-maintenance requirements of vinyl frames. This grants you ease-of-use whenever you choose to install our windows.
Our Fibrex frames are the best options in the market for the following reasons:
Low-Maintenance. Fibrex frames don’t require regular scraping or repainting. They do not contract or expand under stress and adverse conditions, unlike other window frames.
Durability. Our Fibrex frames are made of reclaimed wood fiber that are extremely durable and eco-friendly. You can rely on these frames to last for many years to come. They also have a narrower frame that allows you to have more glass area, which grants you a greater view from your window.
Bang For Your Buck
Some homeowners may get the wrong impression that “green” or energy-efficient windows cost more than conventional ones. While this may be true in the short term, it far outweighs the long-term benefits that you can get. You can save thousands of dollars on energy expenditures while doing your part to help Mother Nature. In fact, these windows increase your home’s energy efficiency by around 30% which is a significant amount.
