The Benefits of Installing an ENERGY STAR®-Rated WindowJanuary 10, 2020
In the not-too-distant past, homeowners took advantage of natural elements such as trees, shrubs and hedges to provide windbreaks to protect their homes from the relentless summer sun and harsh winter winds. As heating and cooling systems became more advanced and more people started using them, concerns about energy efficiency waned somewhat.
However, as consumers have increasingly become more educated and environmentally aware, this has started to change. Many homeowners today actively seek out energy-efficient products that will enable them to reduce their carbon footprint while lowering utility costs.
Commitment to Energy Efficiency
At Renewal by Andersen of Northeast PA, we’re committed to responsible environmental stewardship. This is achieved by producing a wide selection of durable, energy-efficient windows and patio doors that meet or exceed ENERGY STAR® performance standards. Continuing advancements in manufacturing technology have resulted in superior framing and glass materials which, when combined with the unmatched skill of our experienced certified master installers, provide homeowners with attractive, highly-efficient windows that will stand the test of time.
One of our most recent advancements in glass technology is SmartSun™ with HeatLock™ Glass, which is the most energy-efficient glass we’ve ever developed. This new glass option works particularly well for homes in the Northern Zone, where stricter ENERGY STAR requirements are in place. The performance of HeatLock glass is equal to that of triple-pane windows, despite having only two panes of glass.
Increased Energy Savings
According to energystar.gov, homeowners can reduce their energy bills by a nationwide average of 12% just by installing ENERGY STAR-certified windows and doors. Andersen Corporation has been an ENERGY STAR partner for a number of years. In fact, in 2019, Andersen was again awarded the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award by the Environmental Protection Agency–the fifth time it received this honor. The EPA bestows this award on deserving energy partners that have led the way in protecting the environment by developing energy-efficient products.
The Comfort of Home
Along with energy savings, another of the many benefits of ENERGY STAR-rated windows is that they help regulate the temperature in your home, ensuring that your house stays warm and cozy in the winter and cool and comfortable in the summer. ENERGY STAR windows from Renewal by Andersen also feature a unique Low-E glass coating that helps block harmful UV light to protect your furnishings from the sun’s harsh rays.
