Eco-Friendly Home Remodel? Don’t Forget the Windows

If you’re planning a home remodel in 2021 and want to update it to be as eco-friendly as possible, we can help! Wondering what makes your home green? Natural light with new energy-efficient windows, a new heating and cooling system that assists with bolstering indoor air quality, and environmentally friendly siding or roofing products can all help make your home more sustainable. Wondering what to look for when adding energy efficient windows to your home?

Materials:

Vinyl:
These frames are basically maintenance free and durable. The best part: they are great at helping insulate your home, and that translates to less energy usage.  They are also affordable, customizable, and work well in both traditional or contemporary homes.

Fiberglass:
These are some of the strongest frames available. The window frame expands and contracts at about the same rate as the surrounding insulated glass, which helps with energy savings. This material is moisture resistant, which means it won’t warp, split, or bow.

No matter which type of windows you choose, new windows help keep warm air in and cold winter air out. And in the summer, the opposite is true: they keep your air-conditioned air inside and the warm summer heat out. This means your heating and cooling system won’t have to work as hard to heat or cool the home. And because of that, your utility bill won’t skyrocket, and you will be doing your part to reduce your carbon footprint.

We are proud to carry a variety of energy efficient doors and windows from Simonton and Milgard. Contact us today for options, so you can update your home, increasing its curb appeal and making it even more comfortable!
