More and more homeowners are embracing green living today—and that number is steadily rising. In fact, green living has evolved from just following a set of tasks that help save energy—now, homeowners are incorporating eco-friendly features in their home improvement. Renewal by Andersen® of San Francisco, leading source of high-quality replacement doors and windows, shares some ways you can do this too.
- Have underfloor heating installed. If you want a good alternative to radiators or heaters, you should consider underfloor heating. This offers a minimalist approach to home heating, allowing for increased comfort in colder days, while allowing you to save money and energy. While this upgrade is typically associated with newly built homes, underfloor heating can be installed just as easily in older ones.
- Invest in double-glazed windows. Aside from being outdated, single-pane windows can compromise security and energy efficiency in your home. That’s why it’s a better idea to replace them with double-glazed ones from Renewal by Andersen of San Francisco. Our exceptional replacement windows use High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass, which helps allow considerable natural light to enter your home, while keeping out the heat it generates. We smartly utilize the space between the glass panes with an advanced argon gas fill, helping reduce the potential of heat transfer in your home via your windows. This ensures your living spaces remain cool and comfortable even on the hottest summer days.
- Insulate your home properly. One of the best ways to prevent energy loss is to invest in proper insulation. Check your home’s exterior for cracks and other small openings where drafts can leak in, and heating energy can leak out. Make sure the insulation used in your attic space is sufficient and intact. Any windows that have small gaps between the frame and adjacent wall should be sealed promptly to better save energy.
- Increase your home’s access to natural light. This way, you can brighten your home during the day without relying too much on artificial lighting. Installing a bigger patio door can help with this. Renewal by Andersen of San Francisco offers sliding Contemporary doors, which come with sleek framing and an expansive glass area for better daylighting. When closed, they keep an airtight seal that traps energy within your space, and when open, they also direct cooling breezes into your home. Like our windows, our sliding Contemporary doors are available in a variety of customization options, including hardware finish, grille pattern, and exterior color.
