Do you have Andersen Narroline Double Hung Windows in your home? Then make sure you read this article!

A Sweat Equity Project: Andersen Narroline Window Conversion Kits

For many homeowners, budgets are often the biggest challenge: they have castle dreams and a cottage budget.

Cutting corners is one option, or sometimes the homeowner is handy enough to take on some of the labor for tasks like demolition to build a little “sweat equity” into the project. For projects that include window replacement, using the Narroline Window Conversion Kit where applicable might be just the budget savior you were looking for.

 

The last full-frame Andersen® Narroline® double-hung window rolled off the production line in January 2013, concluding a 50 year run where 50 million Andersen Narroline window units were installed in homes across the United States and abroad. That means there’s a good chance your customer’s home may have them. Full-frame production may have come to a halt, but Andersen continues to manufacture Narroline® window conversion kits, which feature Andersen 400 Series tilt-wash sash.

Andersen Windows makes a window conversion kit that can quickly replace older Andersen Narroline windows with far more energy-efficient windows.

These kits provide the ability for us to upgrade your existing Andersen Narroline windows to new technology without disturbing the frame or interior and exterior trim. It’s a relatively simple, cost-effective change-out that provides a good ROI and may lead to other remodeling work as well.

 

Kits include two window sash (upper and lower) with standard, energy efficient Low-E4® glass, left and right jamb assemblies and other components for the conversion. In addition, the new sash have the added tilting feature for easy cleaning.

 

Look carefully before taking out that aging Andersen window. It may be a candidate for a Narroline Conversion Kit.  Why spend all that extra money on full frame replacement windows when you can preserve original windows you already have.

The Old Farmer’s Almanac Says Colder than Average Winter Looms so It’s Time to Winterize Your Home from Top to Bottom – via Next Step Living

Even if your home was originally constructed as an energy-efficient house, time and nature have a way of taking their toll on your home. For example, opening and closing doors and windows over months and years can cause weatherstripping to break down and lose its ability to insulate and protect your home from cold winter drafts.

To ensure an energy-efficient home this winter, grab a pen and notebook, and take a tour of your home and conduct your own home energy audit. Start with the furnace. Check to see when you most recently had your furnace cleaned. It should be cleaned every year, even if it is a gas furnace. A clean furnace is crucial for ensuring that it is operating safely and efficiently.

Next on your home energy audit is to check all the doors and windows and confirm that they open and close properly. Inspect the weatherstripping to confirm that it’s in good working order, as well. Ideally, examine the doors and windows on a cool, windy day so that you can check for drafts.

The attic is the chief culprit for winter home energy loss. Heat rises, and if the attic is improperly insulated, heat from the lower living areas of the home will find its way into the attic and eventually out of the home via the ridge and soffit roof vents.

Inspect the attic for proper insulation. Depending upon where you live, you should have at least R-30 or R-38 insulation in the attic. Make sure that when inspecting the insulation, you check for small breaks. Even the smallest of uninsulated areas in the attic can lead to a dramatic reduction in energy efficiency.

Next take a look at the shower heads in your bathrooms. Heating water is another major culprit in high energy costs. By replacing the old shower heads with low-flow shower heads, you can dramatically save energy at home.

After addressing the big-ticket items in your home energy audit, look at the electrical appliances and light fixtures. By replacing the standard incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs, you can reduce your home’s lighting energy consumption by as much as 70 percent.

Also, if you have the budget, consider replacing some of the old appliances — for example, the refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave and washer and dryer — with Energy Star appliances.

So conduct your own home energy audit this fall, and implement some, if not all, of the suggestions I recommended. By doing so, you will be guaranteed to have an energy-efficient house this winter.
