Every homeowner wants to reduce their energy bills and as such, they’re constantly on the lookout for ways to go green and increase their home’s energy efficiency. According to window installation and experts, one of the popular methods to do so is said to be window replacement projects. While some may find this surprising, it’s actually been proven that installing new windows in your home can help you go green.
Here are the different ways window replacement projects can help you go green.
Reduces the Need for Artificial Lighting
Believe it or not, not only does the continuous use of artificial lighting cause your energy bills to spike up, it can also cause harm to the environment. By choosing the right window for your home, you can easily reduce your reliance on artificial light by allowing natural light into your home instead.
Reduces Your Heating and Cooling Costs
Alternatively, should you choose to install a new window with multiple panes and Low-E coating, you can also reduce your reliance on your HVAC unit. According to studies, upgrading from a single pane to a double-pane window, you can easily reduce your home’s heating costs by 15%. Low-E windows, on the other hand, can help you keep your home cool and comfortable all year round without relying too much on your cooling system.

Environmentally Friendly Materials
On the other hand, some windows are also environmentally friendly due to how they’re manufactured. One example of this are the Fibrex® windows of Renewal by Andersen®, which are manufactured with reclaimed wood fibers from previous windows, reducing additional waste in the process.
