Your windows and doors are an important element of your home’s energy efficiency, which is why these require regular upkeep. Studies by the Department of Energy show that up to 30% of your home’s energy is lost through inefficient windows and doors. This increases your energy consumption and drives up your costs.
Renewal by Andersen® of New Mexico gives some advice on maintenance and the best projects for energy efficiency this fall.
Window and Door Maintenance
Since your windows and doors are constantly exposed to the weather, regular cleaning is essential to keep them looking great. In addition, you should examine your windows and doors for cracks or gaps and for worn weatherstripping.
Caulk those openings and replace the weatherstripping if necessary. Check wooden windows and doors for signs of rot and decay. What if your windows and doors regularly break down and are years old? That means it’s time for new windows and doors in Albuquerque, NM.
Window and Door Replacement
Replacement windows and doors are an excellent project to prioritize this season. Fortunately, our products can increase your home’s energy efficiency, curb appeal, and comfort. These are made of Fibrex® material. It’s a durable and long lasting composite that combines the low maintenance of vinyl with the strength and insulation of wood. It’s an excellent insulator, and is guaranteed not to rot, chip, blister, corrode, or peel. Fibrex also resists fading, making sure your window stays beautiful over the years.
Our windows, sliding doors, and French doors in Albuquerque, NM, also come standard with our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. This glass has a special coating that reflects heat, keeping your house cool in the summer, and warm in the winter. It is more energy-efficient compared with regular dual-pane glass and can save you up to 25% in utility bills. If your windows and doors can no longer cut it, then you should schedule a window or door replacement this season.
