What are the Best Replacement Windows?

What are the Best Replacement Windows?

May 07, 2013


When talking about what constitutes the best replacement windows, companies often toss around the terms “green,” “eco-friendly,” and “energy efficient.” What exactly do these terms even mean? Are these “eco-friendly” products backed by any sort of certification? And if yes, what does that mean for you?

There is a huge difference between energy efficient windows and non-energy efficient windows when considering the best replacement windows. Energy efficient windows help prevent air infiltration and can manage the amount of passing sunlight. These modifications and more help create energy efficient windows that can drastically decrease monthly energy bills and in the process help decrease environmental carbon dioxide levels.

A great way to determine if a window is energy efficient is if it is ENERGY STAR® qualified. The U.S. ENERGY STAR Windows Program is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy (DOE) that identifies and promotes energy efficient products in order to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. So when you chose an ENERGY STAR qualified window you can feel confident knowing you’re not only helping the environment by reducing your carbon footprint, you’re also saving up to 15% on your monthly energy bill.*

Renewal by Andersen is committed to providing the best replacement windows.

Hear From Our Customers

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!!!

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.

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.
