Maintaining the quality of life in your home is actually easy—just focus on your windows. These components not only add to your home’s curb appeal, but they also contribute greatly to its comfort and energy efficiency. You can count on your windows to provide lasting performance, but not if they sustain enough damage from age or harsh weather.
When they’re already old and failing, go for window replacement. It’s essential, however, that your new windows can provide the same, or even exceed the energy performance of your existing ones. Renewal by Andersen®, provider of high-end residential windows in Independence, MO, recommends that you choose replacement windows with ENERGY STAR® certifications.
What is ENERGY STAR?
ENERGY STAR is a voluntary program established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It aims to identify and promote energy-efficient products to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. With its labeling system, ENERGY STAR helps homeowners make greener options, like replacement windows, for their home. In fact, you’ll know that a product exceeds the program’s stringent energy performance ratings when it comes with the white-and-blue ENERGY STAR logo.
