4 New Year Home Upgrades to Try

The New Year typically encourages self-improvement, but it’s even better when your home improves along with you. It’s the perfect time to invest in upgrades that allow for a lovelier, more comfortable, and energy-efficient home. Renewal by Andersen® of San Francisco, one of the area’s top window contractors, suggests some of them.


  1. Add more storage and shelving around your home. In with the new and out with the old—or at least keep the old stuff somewhere else. The most effective way to organize your home is to add shelves and storage baskets throughout your home. This way, you can get your things off the floor and out of the way, allowing for neater, cleaner looking spaces. 
  2. Invest in a new patio door. An old and inoperable door doesn’t add to the look and feel of your outdoor space. What’s more, it can be a safety and security risk. For this reason, you should consider a high-quality patio door replacement from Renewal by Andersen of San Francisco, your premier door and window contractor. Check out our hinged French and sliding Contemporary doors. Aside from serving as lovely focal points, they create a wide opening that seamlessly connects your home’s interior with the patio, maximizing your available living space. 
  3. Get a smart thermostat. This upgrade offers a good way to save energy, helping make your home more efficient. The best part is that it’s readily available, taking no more than 30 minutes to have installed. Speaking of energy efficiency, you should also consider replacing old and failing appliances with ones certified by ENERGY STAR®. This way, you can enjoy a more comfortable home without worrying too much about your energy bill—all while contributing to a better environment. 
  4. Have newer, better windows installed in your home. Have you checked your windows lately? Like your patio doors, your windows play a huge role in keeping your home beautiful, functional, and energy-efficient. That’s why you should replace them promptly when they’re already severely damaged. You can count on Renewal by Andersen of San Francisco, one of the top window companies in the area, for the job.

Our replacement windows are fully customizable with your choice of interior-exterior colors, hardware finishes, and grille patterns. They use exclusive Fibrex® composite, a material that offers the strength and insulating value of wood and combines them with the maintenance-free performance of vinyl. Fibrex doesn’t crack, pit, or corrode, keeping an airtight seal that keeps drafts out while keeping heating and cooling energy in. When paired with our High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass, these windows also provide greater access to healthy natural light, while still allowing for a cooler, more comfortable living space.
