In the first part of this two-part blog series, Renewal by Andersen® of Louisville/Lexington, your local window installation pros, discussed the signs indicating window seal failure and how it affects the energy efficiency and comfort level of your home. Near the end of the blog, we recommended window replacement as the best solution to the problem.
In part two, we shed light on the importance of this home improvement project, especially in terms of achieving a cozy indoor temperature and lower energy consumption.
The Components of Our Energy-Efficient Windows
Window replacement doesn’t just enhance and beautify your home; it also helps reduce heat transfer during periods of extreme weather. To better understand this, it’s worth noting the different window components that make this possible.
For one, our high-performance glass comes with special glass coatings, which serve to let visible light in while blocking out infrared and UV light. The former is responsible for making your home uncomfortable during hot weather, while the latter can damage your furniture and cause it to fade.
All of our window offerings, including our double-hung windows, have double glazing. A gas filling in between the two sheets of glass gives our units strong heat-resistant properties to insulate your home, while the addition of butyl and silicone sealants ensure an airtight seal all over, preventing drafts and leaks from occurring.
Of course, our energy-efficient windows aren’t complete without the frames, which are essential to the units’ structural integrity. Ours are made of Fibrex®, a composite material made from wood fiber and proprietary polymer. You can expect your windows to perform well thanks to its excellent insulating qualities.
Professional Installation Is Key
With these components present in your windows, you’ll most likely use your heating and cooling less, yet will still enjoy a comfortable home environment. In turn, you’ll achieve increased energy savings. The key for these goals to be realized is through professional installation.
When you work with our installation crew, you get quality workmanship—an integral part of your windows’ overall performance. Also, your newly-installed units will be covered by warranties. With these, you can receive peace of mind and a great value for your money.
