Boosting the amount of natural sunlight that enters your home can improve comfort in more ways than one. Daylighting offers sufficient illumination of your interior, helping set the mood in your living spaces and reduce your need for electric light. Additionally, exposing yourself to ample sunlight is actually good for your health and well-being.
At Renewal by Andersen® of Southeastern Mass and Rhode Island, we expertly craft our replacement windows with daylighting in mind. Our windows are specifically designed to help you make the most of natural light for more aesthetically pleasing homes and better energy efficiency. To maximize daylighting in your home, follow these tips:
Be mindful of your room. Each of your rooms serve a specific function, which is why the light intensity for every space should be different from each other. For example, most kitchens require more light for preparing food while bedrooms usually have a filtered light to enjoy a relaxing atmosphere. Fortunately, our window options are customizable to meet your room’s unique needs.
Choose the right window style. Replacement windows come in various styles. Generally, a good daylighting option has expansive glass with little to no grills to allow more light inside. Our sliding windows are naturally wide while our bay and bow windows are ideal for large openings. To enjoy your outdoor scenery better, we recommend installing our casement and picture windows with big panes. These large windows also offer a great passageway for sunlight to pass through into your home.
Invest in energy-efficient glass. Allowing light to enter is one thing; keeping unnecessary heat at bay is another. To protect your home from damaging heat and ultraviolet (UV) rays, consider having energy-efficient window glass, such as our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages. This glass technology helps keep homes cool in summer and preserves a warm indoor climate during winter.
