The Benefits of Daylight in Your Home

Artificial lighting, such as incandescent, LED, and fluorescent lamps, is predominantly used by many homeowners. The heavy dependence on them will, however, cause higher energy consumption and added expenses. On the other hand, the straightforward use of daylight can provide several benefits in your home. Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois, your leading replacement windows provider, talks about the advantages of utilizing natural light in your home.

Less Cost

Your windows allow sunlight to enter your home, allowing you to reduce your fuel and electricity use. An improved sense of illumination can also result in a naturally lit home, banking on the style of your window

For a wider glass surface, we advise homeowners to install picture and gliding windows that utilize our exclusive High Performance™ Low-E4 SmartSun™ glass, enabling more daylight in your home. The maximized glass area has 70% more energy efficiency in summer and 45% more energy efficiency in winter than typical dual-pane glass.

Increased Sustainability and Health Benefit

By increasing your home’s exposure to the sun, you get to make it healthier and more sustainable. Natural daylight has recognized healing power which lowers blood pressure, enhances brain function and bone health, eases mild depression, and boosts vitamins B and D.

Our bay, casement, and double hung replacement windows also use High Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass that keeps over 90% of ultraviolet rays from entering your home. It also restricts noise by reducing sound penetration.

Shifting to natural lighting through your windows can reduce your monthly utility bills and improve your health. If you are planning to maximize your daylight consumption, we offer replacement windows services in Springfield and Decatur, IL.

"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
