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.

"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!!"
