In addition to replacing your old, dysfunctional windows with newer models, you can also utilize window treatments to make your home more energy-efficient. Here is a list of treatments that can make your replacement windows even better:
- Draperies. Depending on the type of fabric and its color, draperies have the capacity to reduce heat gain and loss. Conventional draperies can reduce heat loss up to 10%, while medium-colored drapes with insulated backings can reduce heat gain by more than 30%.
- Shades. Shades are the simplest type of window covering, yet they have the highest capacity for energy efficiency. They are also fairly easy to install. Shades can add style to your interior, and they work well with other window treatments such as draperies.
- Blinds. Unlike shades, with blinds, you can adjust the slats to control light and ventilation. Highly reflective blinds reduce heat gain by approximately 45% and can also be adjusted to block direct sunlight.
- Hinged shutters. Not only do shutters help reduce heat gain and loss in your home, they offer weather protection and increased security, as well. In addition, they can be installed on either the interior or exterior of a property and bring a touch of traditional design to any home.
All of these window treatments are effective at saving energy and protecting your home from the elements, and any of them would be an ideal complement to your new replacement windows from Renewal by Andersen®.
