How Renewal by Andersen® Windows Reduce Heat TransferMay 14, 2018
To make your home livable, you need to have total control over the indoor temperature. Your HVAC system can help you achieve that, but did you know your windows also play an important role?
On average, homes lose 10% of their heat through windows. In addition, the sun can make your interior feel like a furnace if your windows aren’t energy-efficient. Without replacement windows that effectively insulate and can reflect solar heat away from your home, your HVAC system will have to guzzle energy to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.
At Renewal by Andersen® of Eastern New York, our windows keep heat transfer to a minimum. Here’s how our products deliver long-lasting, exceptional energy performance:
Optimum Component Combination
Our casement, bow, specialty and double-hung windows have the best mix of details to ensure exceptional energy efficiency. The anatomy of our window system features our exclusive Fibrex® framing material, High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, an argon gas blend, stainless steel spacers and a dual seal. Each part adds immense value to the whole, allowing our windows to provide unparalleled benefits for heating, cooling, sunlight transfer, ultraviolet protection and condensation resistance.
ENERGY STAR® Adherence
Each of our products bears the ENERGY STAR® label. ENERGY STAR–certified windows meet the local energy efficiency requirements set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. However, not all energy-efficient windows offer the same level of performance in every climate. This seal of approval allows you to see which windows will help reduce unwanted heat loss and heat gain in your local climate.
Our picture, bay and sliding windows comply with ENERGY STAR requirements in the Northern Climate zone, which includes the counties of Orange and Schenectady. In other words, they have the right U-factor and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient rating combo to lend your rooms reliable thermal enclosures.
When it comes to installation, we pay great attention to detail to maximize energy efficiency. We use a special insulating foam that’s formulated to work with our innovative Fibrex® frame material to seal the gaps between the window and the frame. We caulk the trim to prevent water and air infiltration throughout the lifespan of each window.
