The types of windows and doors you have in your home greatly affect how energy efficient it is overall. If you want to keep the inside of your home comfortable and save on your energy bills, it’s important to invest in quality doors and windows and keep them in great shape. If you have windows and doors that are in disrepair or simply not doing their part in maintaining your indoor temperature, than you should seriously consider replacing them. When thinking about replacement windows and doors, you’ll want to make sure you know the features to look for in terms of energy efficiency. Read on to learn what to look for.
Energy Efficient Glass
You’ll want to make sure the glass that is used in your replacement windows and doors is energy efficient. At Mr. Rogers, we only install windows manufactured by Renewal by Andersen, which carries a variety of energy-efficient packages for windows. At a minimum, all our windows come with High-Performance™ Low-E4® Glass, standard. This type of glass is great for most homes, where both keeping your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter is the goal. If you live in an area that gets particularly warm in the summer time, we can install windows that use High Performance Low-E4 SmartSun™ glass. This offers up to 70% more energy efficiency, and they block 95% of harmful UV rays.
It’s getting colder out, and you might soon see your energy bills rising. If the seals on your windows are worn-out, your windows and doors aren’t protecting as well as they could be against drafts and the transfer of heat. All our windows and doors are outfitted with high-quality, airtight seals that protect your home from drafts. This keeps the warm air inside, and saves you money on your energy bills.
Lastly, you’ll want to make sure your replacement doors and windows are made with high-quality, durable, and long-lasting materials! The material your doors and windows are made of can make a huge impact on energy efficiency. All of our windows use Fibrex® composite material – which is higher quality, longer lasting, and looks better than vinyl, while needing less maintenance and being a better insulator.
