Your windows play an important role in securing your home’s energy efficiency, and that’s helping to provide thermal insulation. Heat passes through your windows each day and if this heat is not regulated, then your HVAC might have a harder time keeping your interior comfortable. This is why we make sure to install only the best and most energy-efficient replacement windows for our customers. Read on to learn how our Renewal by Andersen® windows can improve your home’s energy efficiency:
Energy-Efficient Glass Packages
Renewal by Andersen windows all come standard with ENERGY STAR®-qualified insulating glass packages. These glass packages are much more energy-efficient than ordinary dual-pane glass because of their special design and features. For example, they have a spectrally selective low-emissivity coating on both sides of the glass that can minimize heat transfer. This coating reflects solar heat away from the window during the summer, and helps keep interior heat from escaping through the window glass in winter.
You can choose from three different High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages depending on your needs. The High-Performance Low-E4 glass is the default and works well for many climates. As a window replacement expert, we recommend upgrading to High-Performance Low-E4 Sun glass if excessive heat is a concern. This package has a subtle tint that helps reduce glare and has the highest rating against solar heat gain. You can also upgrade the standard package to High-Performance Low-E4 SmartSun™ glass. This particular package provides excellent UV protection and is the most energy-efficient option.
Fibrex® Window Frames
Energy-efficient window glass is just one part of the solution. Your replacement window needs to have strong and durable window frames that can help insulate, as well. That’s why our windows are made of Fibrex. Fibrex is a composite material that has the advantages of both vinyl and wood. It is strong, durable and works as a good insulator. It also requires minimal maintenance and won’t expand or contract during temperature change. This reduces the risk of air leaks, drafts and energy loss through your window.
