Oklahoma homeowners are familiar with extreme temperatures, from arctic chills during winter to swampy heat waves in the summer. One way of mitigating the effects of weather extremes is by installing energy-efficient windows. Today, Renewal by Andersen® of Oklahoma explains how energy-efficient windows can benefit homeowners.
Enjoy a More Comfortable Interior at a Lower Cost
Windows with poor energy efficiency account for a significant portion of your energy bills. In the winter, indoor heat can leak out of your windows, and in the summer, outdoor heat can leak inside, forcing your HVAC system to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature indoors. Energy-efficient windows can help reduce the strain on your HVAC system, allowing it to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature without working too hard.
Avoid Faded Furniture
UV rays can cause your furniture and other belongings to fade. Gas-filled panes made of laminated glass are features you should look for in an energy-efficient window, as these help reduce your power costs. A layer of gas, usually argon, is sandwiched between the two glass panels to keep the heat inside. The laminated glass blocks up to 99.97% of UV rays, protecting your valuables.
Maintain Desirable Humidity Levels
Dry winter air can cause skin irritations and allergies to flare. Energy-efficient windows can help keep relative humidity levels indoors constant and alleviate some of the symptoms.
When investing in new windows, never settle for pre-manufactured window frames. There’s no guarantee they’ll be the right fit for your home. Instead, you should look for custom windows made according to your home’s exact specifications and your needs.
Renewal by Andersen customizes each window for each customer. That’s why we offer in-home consultations. One of our consultants will ask you about your needs and preferences so we can make a window that’s the perfect fit for you.
