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.

"Renewal was fantastic! They kept you in the loop from ordering to installation. They informed you at every step of the process of what was happening. The installers were kind, courteous, and professional. Everything was cleaned up after the installation. It was as if they hadn't been there except to see your beautiful new windows. I highly recommend them."

"3rd time using RBA for window replacement. Again, a very positive experience, the windows are great, the installation was done right, the professionalism was apparent from start to finish. Still have existing windows to be replaced and will definitely use RBA again to do it in the future."

"Renewal by Andersen was a good experience for us in replacement of our windows. From the initial meeting with the sales representative, Leslie, through the waiting period for manufacturing, and then to the installment process, our experience was excellent! Communication is key for me and we were kept informed and updated as our windows were being ordered and manufactured. Calls to update us on the installation process were welcomed and appreciated. They know how much is too much so they don't pester you with unnecessary contact. We love our new windows!!! Did I say that already??😂 We can tell a major difference in reduced Street noise and also the temperature at our windows. Excellent company, highly recommend!!"
