Insulation and proper heating become a much bigger concern as winter approaches. You don’t need to spend a fortune to stay warm during the cold days of winter. Renewal by Andersen®, Milwaukee’s expert windows contractor, suggests the following ways to boost your home’s insulation.
Get Double-Hung Windows
As one of our most popular products from Renewal By Andersen, double-hung windows are great for homeowners who want to improve the insulation of their home. They can help your home retain energy better. You can open both the bottom and top sashes, so during warmer months you can allow the cool breeze to come in and push the warmer air out. During winter, you can simply close the window to prevent drafts and air leaks.
Use High-Quality Doors
Choose doors made of high quality wood, as this plays an important role in keeping the heat inside your home at the level you want. Old or cheap doors tend to have gaps that let drafts in, and they either have a short life span or come with very poor warranties from the manufacturer, if at all.
Our doors, however, are not only backed by industry-leading warranties for the product and the workmanship, but they are also beautiful, adding value to your home. The hardware is class-leading in beauty and longevity, as well.
When it comes to products for proper insulation, Renewal By Andersen is the company to turn to. The items we install meet industry standards. We use Fibrex for our window frames and sashes. It’s a mixture of polymers and reclaimed wood grains. The result of this is a stronger, more durable and energy-efficient material. It can also withstand the harsh cold of winter without warping or chipping.
