Leverage Spring Weather for Improved Energy Efficiency

Leverage Spring Weather for Improved Energy Efficiency

May 14, 2024

Spring’s arrival brings the perfect opportunity to rethink your home’s energy strategy. With Renewal by Andersen windows, you can enhance your home’s energy efficiency by harnessing the mild spring climate. Below, we explore various ways these windows can help you save on energy costs while improving indoor comfort. 

Enhance Home Ventilation

Spring offers the ideal weather for reducing your dependence on HVAC systems. Renewal by Andersen windows are designed with superior functionality, making it simple to open your windows and enjoy the cool, fresh air, naturally reducing your energy consumption. 

To effectively cool your home without air conditioning, arrange your windows to create a cross-flow of air. This involves opening windows on opposite sides of your home to create a breezy pathway that carries the cool air through your living spaces. 

Smart Window Treatments

As the days grow longer, controlling the amount of sunlight entering your home is crucial to keep indoor temperatures comfortable. Use window treatments, including blinds and shades, to help manage sunlight exposure. This will minimize heat build-up while still letting in plenty of natural light. 

During cooler spring evenings, thermal drapes can provide an additional insulation layer. Closing these drapes at dusk will keep the day’s warmth inside, and opening them during the day will use the sun’s rays to naturally heat your home. 

Invest in High-Performance Windows

Renewal by Andersen’s High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass is ideal for spring as it efficiently manages the indoor climate. This glass reflects indoor heat back inside on cooler days and blocks out heat on warmer days, significantly reducing your energy bills. 

The Fibrex® composite in our window frames offers excellent thermal insulation, superior to traditional materials. This helps maintain a comfortable indoor temperature and reduces the strain on your HVAC system, lowering your energy usage. 

Seasonal Maintenance Tips 

The transition into spring is a great time to inspect the seals and weatherstripping around your windows. Ensuring these are intact prevents unwanted drafts and improves your windows’ efficiency. 

Keeping your windows clean ensures maximum sunlight penetration, which can naturally warm your home, reducing the need for artificial heating. A clear, clean window pane allows the most effective use of natural light and warmth. 

Embrace Energy-Efficiency

This spring, make a positive impact on your home’s energy efficiency with Renewal by Andersen windows. By optimizing ventilation, using window treatments strategically, and maintaining your windows, you can enjoy lower energy costs and a more comfortable home environment. Renewal by Andersen is here to help you select and install the perfect windows for your needs, ensuring your home is ready to take full advantage of the beautiful spring weather.

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.
