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.

Reviews

"We had a large picture window and two side windows replaced. Everyone from the person who took our order to the installers were top notch. We got exactly what we wanted. Granted, we had to wait a few months, just like you do for everything these days, but we were told that up front. The windows were well worth the wait. We've replaced windows before by going to home maintenance stores. Don't waste your money on those. Our Renewal by Andersen windows look great, they operate like a dream, and are worth every penny. Quality through and through."

"From start to finish everyone we dealt with were total professionals.. The project process was well communicated, the installers did an excellent job and the windows - I’m so excited about our new windows! They look great. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I am looking forward to cleaning them. And it was obvious immediately that the insulation is vastly better than the old windows. Also, I am just a customer who gets nothing for this endorsement. I just appreciate good service and an excellent product. This company knows how to do it right."
