Harnessing Spring Weather for Enhanced Energy Efficiency

Spring is in full swing, and homeowners can embrace the season to enhance their home’s energy efficiency. Renewal by Andersen windows offers the perfect combination of design and functionality to help you capitalize on the milder weather. Here’s how to leverage these windows to reduce energy bills and maintain a comfortable home environment. 

Optimize Natural Ventilation

Let the fresh air in! Spring is the ideal time to reduce reliance on HVAC systems and enjoy natural ventilation. Renewal by Andersen windows are designed for easy operation, allowing you to open them when temperatures are mild. This brings fresh air into your home and helps flush out indoor pollutants. 

Use multiple windows across the house to create a cross breeze that can naturally cool your home. Position windows opposite each other to allow for a flow of air, which can help regulate indoor temperatures without the need for air conditioning. 

Use Window Treatments to Your Advantage

With the sun climbing higher, controlling light and heat becomes crucial. Use window treatments, such as blinds and shades, to manage how much sunlight enters your home. Light filtering shades are particularly useful during spring to prevent excessive heat build-up while allowing natural light. 

Thermal drapes can be used during cooler spring nights to provide an additional insulation layer. These can be drawn at night to keep the warmth in and opened during the day to capture warmth from the sun. 

Upgrade to Energy-Efficient Windows

Renewal by Andersen windows feature High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, which is 56% more energy-efficient in summer and 47% more efficient in winter than ordinary dual-pane glass. This technology helps to reflect heat back into the home during cooler days and keeps heat out during warmer days. 

Our Fibrex® composite window frames provide superior thermal insulation properties compared to traditional materials. These frames are energy-efficient, durable, and require minimal maintenance, perfect for Wisconsin’s varying climate.

Regular Maintenance Checks 

With the changing season, it’s a good time to check and replace worn-out seals or weatherstripping around your windows. This prevents drafts and ensures that your windows function optimally in maintaining your home’s temperature. 

Regular cleaning of window glass can also play a role in maximizing light penetration and heat efficiency. A clean window allows for unobstructed sunlight to warm your home naturally. 

Embrace Energy-Efficiency

What better way to embrace spring than by enhancing your home’s energy efficiency with Renewal by Andersen windows? By focusing on natural ventilation, smart use of window treatments, and ensuring your windows are in prime condition, you can enjoy a comfortable, energy-efficient home ready for the warmer months ahead.
