A LOOK AT RENEWAL BY ANDERSEN® WINDOW GLASS OPTIONS

A Look At Renewal By Andersen Window Glass Options

This article discusses one key component of energy-efficient windows: glass packages.

Window Glass Qualities

Renewal by Andersen glass provides the necessary heating, cooling, visible light transfer and ultraviolet (UV) protection qualities you are looking for in an energy-efficient window. It utilizes a state-of-the-art technology, both on the exterior and the interior.

On the exterior of the glass, the metal oxide coating is applied to enable easy surface cleaning. When activated by sunlight, the likelihood of water spotting is reduced to 99%. Meanwhile, a light, multi-layer low emissivity (Low-E) coating is applied on the glass interior. This allows for visible light to pass through the glass while reflecting heat. With this coating, you remain comfortable both during summer and winter months.

Glass Options

Before windows installation begins, you will have to choose which glass option is best for you. The climate you live in, the architectural design of your home, the placement of your windows in relation to the sun and your desired “custom climate” are some of the factors you need to consider.

Your options include the following:

  • High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass – Standard for all windows we manufacture, it blocks 83% of harmful UV rays. It is effective in improving energy efficiency by up to 47% in the winter and 56% in the summer in comparison to ordinary dual-pane glass.
  • High-Performance Low-E4 SmartSun™ glass – It provides better energy efficiency by up to 49% in the winter and 70% in the summer. It has the best daylighting capabilities while blocking the sun’s heat.
  • High-Performance Low-E4 Sun glass – This glass has a tint coating that brings in just the right amount of visible light while keeping your home cooler during warm weather.

The installation crew was efficient and they all were professional. These are really nice windows and a great upgrade especially from builder-grade windows."

"Everyone I worked with from setting up the initial appointment to the salesman to the installers to everyone who checked on us and kept us updated on the progress of the windows was courteous, professional, and responsive. There’s always someone who is willing to answer your question without jumping through hoops which is rare these days! The installers were on time, did a beautiful job, cleaned up the space better than I expected, and even helped me with some blinds I couldn’t remove and fixed my squeaky front door! I’ve already recommended Renewal by Anderson to friends!"
