Update or Replace Existing Windows

Should you update or replace your existing windows? When it comes to energy efficient home windows, there are a few easy ways to determine the best option for you.

Age is an easy way to determine whether your windows need a small update or a replacement. For windows over twenty years old, you should consider a window replacement. Performance has likely decreased significantly due to old or broken seals.

Energy costs are another indicator that may help you decide to update or replace. Air infiltration is one of the top causes of overworking your HVAC system during summer and winter. Caulking or adding weatherstripping could be a cost-effective option.

In addition to checking for drafts, you may consider investing in quality window films or coverings, like black-out curtains. If these simple updates don’t provide the results you’re looking for, then you can consider a window replacement.

If you are considering window replacement, Renewal by Andersen offers a full-service window replacement service that includes custom-fit windows. Designing your windows may seem intimidating, but Renewal by Andersen delivers a hassle-free experience. To get started, there are four window features you should evaluate when shopping for energy saving windows in Vancouver.

Window Frames

A well-insulating window frame is an important feature to boost your energy efficiency. Andersen’s exclusive Fibrex® material offers the strength and insulating value of wood with the low maintenance features of vinyl. Fibrex® material never requires painting and will not crack, pit, corrode, or rot. Thanks to Fibrex® material, homeowners can enjoy durable, insulated windows for years to come.

Energy-Efficient Glass

The key to energy efficient glass is choosing the best glass for your climate. Vancouver is fortunate to have a mild, oceanic climate. We locals are able to enjoy moderate temperatures for most of the year.

The glazing on your glass is what helps determine the best option. At Renewal by Andersen, High-Performance Low-E4® glass is 56% more energy efficient in summer as compared to ordinary dual-pane glass. Vancouver can appreciate the value of this glass option. Even large, south-facing windows will be able to protect your house from significant heat gain in the summer.

Materials with thermal properties, like Fibrex® material, absorb and release heat slowly. This can help maintain comfortable temperatures throughout the day.

Operating Types

Window styles are another feature to consider for energy efficient windows in Vancouver. Functional styles, like casement windows, are tightly sealed during the replacement to fight against air and moisture leaks. Functional windows also allow homeowners to improve ventilation in your home.

Homeowners who would like picture windows or specialty windows can also enjoy energy efficiency improvement. As fixed windows, these styles reinforce the seal and reduce accidental leaks if the window isn’t closed properly or completely.


Renewal by Andersen has replaced more than 8.5 million windows. You can count on us to do the job right with a respectful approach and professionalism you’d expect from an industry leader.

What are the benefits to hiring a professional installation company? As professionals, we seal your window correctly avoiding overworking your heating and cooling appliances. Local experts understand Vancouver, like climate, housing regulations, and any other nuances.

Proper installation also contributes to high efficiency windows from various weather conditions.

Cost Savings

There could be rebates available for installing energy efficient windows.
