Window replacement comes with many benefits, but none more important than increased energy efficiency. Considering that we face numerous energy and environmental challenges, it’s imperative that we minimize our cooling and heating costs to do our share in solving them.
According to Alliance to Save Energy, with which Andersen Corporation and Renewal by Andersen® of Phoenix are affiliated, here are the best benefits of improved energy efficiency:
It’s Kind to Your Bank Account
The first beneficiary of elevating your home’s energy performance through window replacement is you. Maintaining your desired level of comfort using less gas or electricity helps keep more dollars in your bank account. In addition to reduced cooling and heating expenses, energy-efficient windows can also reduce your dependence on artificial lighting by illuminating your interior with plenty of daylight.
It Helps the Planet
Using less energy means less greenhouse gas emission. Although renewable sources of energy have becoming more available, the U.S. remains reliant on coal, oil and natural gas to power its cities. Since such a practice is not sustainable, we’re going to exhaust them all one day, compounding climate change in the process.
It Revitalizes the Economy
Energy efficiency projects, like window replacement, create jobs across the nation. Also, it inspires innovation as manufacturers try to stay ahead of the pack, creating healthy competition. More importantly, it saves the U.S. government, the private sector and homeowners billions of dollars’ worth of energy costs per year.
It Enhances National Security
According to Green Seal, the U.S. would cut down on 2.5% of its annual energy consumption if all windows were as energy-efficient as our products. It means the country would save about 200 gallons of oil for every household. It pays to conserve our precious natural resources for future generations to enjoy.
