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.

"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!!"
