If you have old, drafty windows, you may be paying for it in more ways than comfort. Old windows have poor energy efficiency, resulting in significant energy loss and extra dependence on your HVAC system when temperatures are particularly high or low. This of course means higher energy bills.
In today’s post, your trusted window installation company, [company_name], explains what goes into constructing an energy efficient window.
Quality Frame Materials
All Renewal by Andersen windows are made of our exclusive Fibrex® composite material. This composite is partly made up of wood, giving it superior insulating properties, which helps prevent unwanted heat loss and from your interior during cold months. It also offers the low maintenance qualities of vinyl. Despite the frequent temperature changes, Fibrex hardly contracts and expands, keeping your home weathertight all year long.
All our windows, including custom windows, come standard with dual panel glass for enhanced protection. They insulate much better than windows that only have a single glass pane.
We make the most out of the space created by our dual panel glass design. We fill this gap with inert argon gas, a non-toxic, colorless, and odorless gas, which further improves the window’s insulation.
Low-Emissivity (Low-E) Glass
The type of glass your bay window or other window types have makes all the difference when it comes to energy efficiency. At Renewal by Andersen, we offer two premier glass options that allow abundant natural light into your home while filtering out unwanted heat gain and UV rays. Our High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ and our High-Performance Low-E4 glass can both give you substantial energy savings.
Warm Edge Spacers
A spacer maintains the correct distance between your window panes. We use stainless, low-conductivity spacers to prevent rapid heat transfer through your windows for effective thermal stability.
Installing energy-efficient replacement windows is a smart investment to keep your home cozy and your energy costs low. Call us today at [company_phone] or complete our form to learn more about our units.
