Renewal by Andersen® of Boise offers industry-leading custom replacement windows with ENERGY STAR® certification. In this blog, we share the common problems that our house window replacement services can solve.
High Energy Bills
Windows are part of the insulated enclosure known as the energy envelope, which also consists of the attic and walls. With proper insulation, the energy envelope should be able to minimize heat transfer which causes heat loss during cold days and heat gain during hot days. Consistent indoor temperatures help reduce required indoor heating and cooling requirements, resulting in energy savings.
Renewal by Andersen replacement windows complement wall and attic insulation thanks to our exclusive double-pane High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages. Eliminating contact between interior and exterior surfaces reduces the natural conductivity of glass. When combined with our exclusive Fibrex® material frames, you get ENERGY STAR windows that help you save on your monthly energy bills.
Unwanted Modifications to the House
Off-the-shelf replacement windows come in specific sizes, which means adjustments will need to be made if there’s a mismatch. A large opening would have large areas to be filled in if the replacement windows end up being too small. Worse, the window opening would have to be resized to accommodate large replacement windows.
By contrast, each Renewal by Andersen replacement window is custom-built to fit the existing window opening. This makes our replacement windows ideal for projects that require preserving the original structure, as in home restorations.
Difficult Window Maintenance
Window cleaning and maintenance tend to require lots of work. Traditionally, one has to wash the windows, wipe them clean, and every so often scrape and repaint the frames and sashes. Doing the same to homes with upper-story windows carries some risk.
Renewal by Andersen replacement windows are easy to clean and maintain. The Fibrex frames and sashes require virtually no maintenance, much like vinyl. The factory-applied colors and finishes are guaranteed not to blister, crack, or peel, which eliminates the need to scrape and repaint the windows. The exterior glass surfaces feature a metal oxide coating that reduces up to 99% of water spotting when activated by sunlight. In addition to all of this, our operable replacement window styles feature sashes that can be tilted, removed, or can be reached around for easy—and safe—indoor cleaning.
