Many homeowners waste electricity at home by turning on light bulbs in bathrooms and bedrooms during the day. Your trusted window company, Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City, advocates using windows as a source of natural light. It can bring you two distinct advantages:
Why Natural Light Is Beneficial
Natural light is a healthier alternative for your body. Many people spend the day staring at LCD screens and reading under a fluorescent light. The issue with that is it hurts your eyes. Nothing is brighter than the sunlight. Light fixtures would have to have high wattages to achieve the same luminosity during the day.
With even thirty minutes of sunlight, you get many benefits. Firstly, you get your daily dose of Vitamin D. It has also been proven that you get better sleep when exposed to the morning light. With our double hung and casement windows, you can improve your sleep within a week.
Better Home Improvement
Aside from protecting your health, natural light plays an important role in reducing your energy bills. Wasting precious electricity during the day is not good. That’s why natural lighting is a green solution, since you only need your windows. With more natural light, your home looks bigger and colors stand out better.
The biggest issue with natural lighting is heat transfer. Many homeowners worry that the light shining through the window will lead to a higher energy bill anyway, thanks to additional reliance on your HVAC units.
This doesn’t need to be the case. Our energy-efficient replacement windows are custom-built with Fibrex® frames and grilles, which are made of wood fiber and composite. The glass is also high quality, covered with low-E4 coatings and argon gas fillings that both reduce heat transference.
