Doing a bit of research before choosing new replacement windows can help you maximize the returns on your investment. It would also be helpful to schedule a consultation with window contractors. As part of our Signature Service, Renewal by Andersen® of Seattle offers free window consultations to customers.
What are some of the questions you should ask during a window consultation?
Which Frame Materials Can Handle Your Area’s Climate?
Freezing temperatures can be harsh on your windows, which is why you should choose a frame material that can handle your area’s climate. Fibrex®, an exclusive wood fiber and thermoplastic composite, is an ideal window frame material for homes in temperate climates. It’s durable enough to handle withstand extreme temperatures, has excellent insulative capabilities, and resists common window issues such as fading, flaking, blistering, and peeling
How Much Can You Save on Heating Costs by Installing an Energy Efficient Window?
According to the Department of Energy, drafty windows account for 25% to 30% of the average household’s heating and cooling costs. As such, installing energy-efficient replacement windows can have a sizable impact on indoor comfort and heating costs.
If you’re looking for energy-efficient windows, Renewal by Andersen offers a wide range of energy-efficient glass options. Our most energy-efficient glass option is the High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. Compared to a standard dual-pane window, a window with High-Performance Low-E4 glass is 56% more efficient in summer and 45% more efficient in winter.
What Features Can Make Window Maintenance Easier?
Certain windows are easier to maintain. For instance, you can tilt the sash of double-hung windows to clean outside glass panes from inside your home.
