Cut Utility Bills With Energy Efficient Windows

Cut Utility Bills With Energy Efficient Windows

April 16, 2014

Creating a sustainable and energy-efficient environment at home, more often than not, may get a lot of homeowners frowning. For one, they may have this impression that the cost of upgrading windows, the roof and walls with energy-efficient features is high. However, this shouldn’t be the case as there are other practical ways to conserve energy and money without spending too much, and you can recoup your investment rather quickly. An article from Milwaukee based online newspaper said that utilizing energy efficient Low-E windows is the key:

Windows are another important aspect of a house’s total system, because they are typically the weakest link in a house’s thermal envelope. A house’s “r” value refers to the resistance of heat flow, and windows have the lowest “r” value in the envelope. One current trend among builders is the installation of what are called “low-emissivity” or “low-e” windows. These windows are double-glazed; i.e., have two panes of glass with an insulating layer of air or gas in between, with special coatings that reflect radiant heat. In the winter, these coatings throw heat back inside the house, and in the summer, they reflect it outward.

Indeed, installing energy-efficient windows can help homeowners lessen their household expenses. According to the Department of Energy, these types of windows will allow homeowners to reduce their overall utility expenses by up to 25 percent.

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.
