Are you starting to experience higher energy costs? Do you want to make your home more energy-efficient? Are you looking for ways to beat the heat this summer? While there are several home improvement projects that you can do, one recommendation is to replace windows that are not energy-efficient.
Energy-Efficient Windows with Low-E Glass
One important component of energy-efficient windows is the right glass option. Windows in Wichita, KS, from Renewal by Andersen® are fully equipped with our high-performance low-E glass. Low-E, which stands for “low emissivity,” glass has a microscopically thin coating that helps regulate heat transfer. This can help keep excess heat away from your home in summer and keep heat in during winter.
Renewal by Andersen of Kansas has several glass options that can help meet the specific needs of your home. Each of our windows comes equipped with one of three low-E glass options, each with its own set of benefits. Let’s discuss these options further:
- High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass is 45% more energy-efficient in summer and 56% more efficient in winter compared with your standard dual-pane glass.
- High-Performance Low-E4 SmartSun™ glass can help your home stay cooler. It’s 70% more energy-efficient in summer and 45% more efficient in winter.
- High-Performance Low-E Sun™ glass is our most energy-efficient glass option. It has the highest rating against solar heat gain, and it will keep your home cooler in warmer weather. It can also reduce visible light with its tint coating.
You can also get each of these options in four different patterns: Reed, Cascade, Fern, and Obscure. Furthermore, you can expect these glass options to block out harmful UV rays that can cause furniture, paintings, carpets, and other home fixtures to fade.
Together with our Fibrex® composite framing material, our High-Performance Low-E4 glass will help your home stay comfortable and become more energy-efficient this summer and throughout the year.
