At Renewal by Andersen® of Columbus, increasing home energy performance is one of the things we do best. Understanding that every climate has unique energy efficiency criteria, we offer three innovative glass packages to meet different requirements. Our glazing options optimize spectrally selective, low-e coatings, helping our windows earn the coveted ENERGY STAR® seal and achieve our region’s recommended NFRC ratings.
Here’s an overview of our advanced glass solutions you can use for your new windows:
High-Performance™ Low-E4® Glass
This is our standard offering. It blocks 58% of the solar heat passing through it and reflects 84% of ultraviolet radiation. Compared to ordinary double-pane units, our Low-E4® glass can make your home 45% and 56% more energy-efficient in winter and summer, respectively. When it comes to daylighting, it lets in the highest amount of sunlight among our glazing solutions. With it, our products allow 72% of sunshine through.
High-Performance Low-E4 SmartSun™ Glass
SmartSun™ is our top-rated glass option. It offers the best trade-offs among solar reflectance, sun damage protection, and visible light transmittance. It also has the lowest U-factor value, allowing our windows to reduce heat loss significantly. It bounces 72% of infrared and 95% of ultraviolet rays back outside while still ushering in 65% of natural light.
High-Performance Low-E4 Sun Glass
If you want to filter out even more heat and keep your rooms cool during the hottest months, we recommend our Sun glass. It has the highest rating against solar heat gain, reflecting 72% of the infrared radiation. It delivers the same UV protection as our standard Low-E4 glass and catches 40% of the sunlight.
Apart from our cutting-edge, spectrally selective, multi-layer, low-e coated glass, our windows also feature our insulative Fibrex® framing material, argon gas filling, and a stainless steel spacer. These components work together to lend our products exceptional energy performance.
