According to the U.S. Department of Energy, drafty, leaky, inefficient windows can cause your home to lose 30% or more of its heating energy in winter, and up to 50% of a home’s cooling energy in summer. With the high cost of energy, that’s a lot of money escaping out the window!
When considering energy efficient replacement windows Connecticut an important factor to keep in mind is whole window performance. Renewal by Andersen’s outstanding whole window performance is the result of the patented Fibrex framing material, Andersen High-Performance Low-E4, double pane glass, and professional installation. Together, these elements will keep your home 35% more energy efficient in winter and 41% more efficient in summer when compared to ordinary dual pane glass. Depending on where you live, that can cut your energy bills by up to 25%.
Energy Efficient Glass
All window glass may look the same. But not all glass performs the same. Every Renewal by Andersen window installed by VInylume comes standard with High-Performance Low-E4 glass.
Compared to ordinary dual-pane glass, High-Performance Low-E4 glass is 35% more energy efficient in winter and 41% more efficient in summer. High-Performance Low-E4 glass also features an invisible titanium dioxide (TiO2) coating on the exterior glass surface that makes cleaning easier. When activated by sunlight, the coating loosens dirt from the glass exterior so it can be washed away by rain. And it makes the exterior glass surface dry faster with up to 99% fewer water spots. Our glass is even protected on both sides by a removable film that helps shield it from damage. When it comes to energy efficiency, this type of glass, or glazing, stands head and shoulders above single pane or ordinary double pane glass.
There are Five Key Components to energy efficient glass. Details make all the difference in long-term performance:
- NEW High-Performance Low-E4 glass stays cleaner, reduces water spotting up to 99% and cuts energy bills up to 25%
