If you’re looking for replacement windows that will improve your home’s energy efficiency, Renewal by Andersen® of Kentucky is the name you can trust. Our products have excellent NFRC ratings because they have the perfect combination of features for reduced thermal transfer and solar heat gain prevention. Here are the styles we recommend the most for maximum energy performance:
Picture (and Specialty) Windows
Our specialty and picture windows offer superior weathertightness since they can’t be opened. Like our other made-to-order products, our fixed units are professionally measured twice to fit to within 1/16th of an inch of the window opening. Our Certified Master Installers follow the most appropriate installation method to ensure the existing construction is structurally sound, reducing the chances of leakage over time.
Of all operable windows, casement windows are the most airtight. The single sash presses against the frame when the window is closed to minimize air infiltration. Our casement windows have an easily accessible lever lock for an even tighter seal.
When ventilation is desired, simply crank the casement window open like a door and enjoy a fresh breeze and better indoor air quality. Installing casement windows on opposite walls lets you maximize cross-ventilation, capitalizing on external winds that will help you regulate your indoor temperature without relying too much on your HVAC system.
Unlike double-hung windows, sliders provide top-to-bottom ventilation. Since they’re usually wider than they are tall, sliding windows can open widely to breathe in cool drafts and let moist, indoor air out.
Our sliding windows come in a wide range of styles. Our Gliding Fractional Vent Window and Gliding Triple Window designs combine the benefits of fixed and operating units for versatility and energy efficiency.
Projection windows usually deliver outstanding thermal performance and ventilation, but the bay window has a slight edge over the bow window for several reasons. The former has fewer panels, which essentially reduces the number of gaps where the air can enter and leave your home. Plus, the wide, middle window of the bay window is usually fixed for weathertightness, and its flanker units operate to provide optional ventilation when necessary.
