Renewal by Andersen® has been providing quality windows for over 100 years now. Aside from durability and style, our windows are also popular because of their energy-saving features.
We have different glass options that offer different benefits in terms of heating, cooling, ultraviolet (UV) protection, and light transfer. We offer different options because we understand that different homes have specific needs. Philadelphia, for example, will need replacement windows that can cool homes in summer and keep homes warm during winter.
Your choice of glass solution will depend on three variables:
- Climate – some window options can reflect or contain heat better when needed
- Architectural design – for enhanced curb appeal
- Window orientation – windows facing south will generally collect more solar heat compared to windows facing north, east, or west
Here are three glass options that we offer. We rate each option depending on energy efficiency in summer/winter and percentage of UV rays blocked.
1. High Performance™ Low-E4® glass
This glass option can save up to 56% in energy costs during winter and 45% during summer. It can also block 84% of UV rays that can damage interior furniture. You can choose from four patterns for this type: Obscure, Reed, Cascade, or Fern.
2. High-Performance Low-E4 SmartSun™ glass
Our SmartSun Philadelphia replacement windows are the best energy-efficient options available. They are 70% more energy-efficient during summer, leading to less use of air-conditioning systems. They are also 45% more efficient in winter and can block 95% of UV rays. This is also an ideal choice if you want more natural daylight.
3. High-Performance Low-E4 Sun glass
This glass option has the highest rating when it comes to solar heat gain. It comes with a tint coating that reduces the amount of visible light.
To make our windows more energy-efficient, we have combined them with our patented Fibrex® material, which has superior insulating properties that can make your home more comfortable. Thanks to our efforts to make energy-efficient windows, we have earned the ENERGY STAR® seal on all our windows.
