REVISITING THE BENEFITS OF THE RBA® LOW-E4® GLASS

Installing “low-e” windows is one good way to enhance your home’s energy efficiency. Renewal by Andersen® offers St. Charles Missouri energy efficient windows with low-e coatings. But first things first, what does low-e mean? Low-e st ands for low emissivity. Low-e coatings are thin, practically invisible layers made of metal or metallic oxide that are applied on the glass pane.

Our windows have more low-e coatings than your usual energy-efficient window, and because of this, they have the capacity to let the right amount of sunlight in, and to deflect harmful rays such as ultraviolet and infrared. They can also increase the amount of visible light that enters your home, all the while making sure that the heat does not. Moreover, our windows’ metal oxide coatings can reduce water spotting as much as 99% when activated by sunlight.

Here at Renewal by Andersen, we offer three different yet very similar glass options–all with low-e coatings, and we call them High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass.

  • The st andard offering is comparably 56% more energy-efficient than your usual double-pane glass during summer and 45% more efficient in winter. It can effectively block 83% of the undesirable ultraviolet rays, and can also help you reduce your energy consumption by as much as 25%.
  • The SmartSun™ glass is the most energy-efficient glass ever offered by Renewal by Andersen, as it is 70% more efficient in summer and 47% more efficient in winter. It can effectively block 95% of harmful ultraviolet rays, saving your furniture from fading.
  • The Sun™ glass, while also sporting the low-e coatings, has tint coatings that reduce the amount of light that enters your home. It has the highest rating against solar heat gain and is the best at blocking the sun’s heat.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
