As the summers get hotter, we need more and more ways to keep our homes cool. The first move for many people is drawing the blinds and turning down the lights. It’s nice having a cool space, but cool rooms don’t need to be dark, even in the summer.
How Can I Open My Blinds Without Heating Up My House?
Just imagine, It’s morning and the sun is just breaking free of the horizon. But your blinds are drawn, and you’re still in bed. You open the blinds, and the room goes from dark and gloomy to bright and wonderful!
That delightful sunlight may be great for your mood, but it’s not so great for the room or your energy bill.
As the day passes, that room heats up because of all of that sunlight.
As the weeks and months pass, the harmful UV rays start to damage things in the room. This is avoidable, and Renewal by Andersen is here to help! Our windows help in keeping your house cool in extreme heat.
Install a window with our High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass. Renewal by Andersen windows take your home to the next level. It’s significantly more energy-efficient in summer as compared to ordinary dual-pane glass. 1 By blocking heat from coming in, and insulating heat from leaving your house, our windows make your homes more energy efficient.
SmartSun glass even protects your belongings.
High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ blocks almost all harmful UV rays from entering your home and cuts down on noise pollution by reducing sound penetration. These harmful UV rays can deteriorate your furniture, paintings, artwork, and even photos.
Beautify your Home
Welcoming and open spaces – spaces that invite visitors and linger in the minds of your guests – make for a more enjoyable and memorable place. We’ve all been in those homes that feel dark and dingy, and we do our best to forget those. There are so many bonuses to creating a home that is inviting to guests, and more fulfilling to you! One of the easiest ways to make your home more inviting is brightening up the room.
Add More Natural Light
Taking advantage of natural light with windows is an excellent way to lower your energy consumption and save on heating and cooling costs. The goal is to use the least amount of electric-generated light during the day by maximizing the utilization of natural light. Follow these useful tips to get the most out of the sun’s rays and become less reliant on electricity to illuminate rooms in the morning or afternoon.1
