In the past, many homes did not focus on energy efficiency due to affordable energy. Windows used to focus mainly on improving a home’s curb appeal and ventilation. Due to the sudden demand of energy in the 1970s, however, many companies started making products that could help improve a home’s energy efficiency, such as Low-E technology.
Let Renewal by Andersen® of Houston show you our innovation in glass technology:
Our Low-E Glass Options
We offer quality windows in Houston, TX, that come with either one of three Low-E glass technologies:
• High-Performance™ Low-E4® Glass – This is our standard glass option. It is 56% more energy-efficient in summer compared to traditional dual-pane glass. Depending on where you live, you can save up to 25% in your energy costs. It can also block 83% of UV rays that can damage your drapes.
• High-Performance Low-E4 SmartSun™ Glass – This is our most energy-efficient glass option. Its performance improves in summer, where its energy efficiency increases to 70%, making it an ideal option for the region.
• High-Performance Low-E4 Sun™ Glass – This glass option has the highest energy efficiency when it comes to solar heat gain and will ensure that your home is cozy despite hot weather conditions. This comes with a tint coating that reduces the amount of light that enters your home.
As a general feature, our glass packages feature a unique coating system. Metal oxide coatings are applied on the glass exterior to make its surface clean and to reduce water spots when hit by sunlight. We also apply spectrally selective multi-layer low-E technology inside the glass’ airspace.
Our Double Glazing
Two panel windows are better when it comes to reducing heat compared to single pane windows. It is important to optimize the air space between two panes for maximum performance. Insufficient space between the two glass panes can lead to energy inefficiency and heat loss. Our window replacement in Houston, TX, uses this space to ensure optimal energy efficiency.
Apart from Low-E glass technology, we offer windows that feature a patented frame composite called Fibrex®. It offers superior insulation that can help keep your home cool. You can also count on our factory-trained installers to make sure that your windows are airtight through insulating foam, seals, and strips. Expect our double hung windows in Houston, TX, to help make your home more livable.
Renewal by Andersen of Houston takes pride in our innovation in glass technology. You can be sure that the windows you are getting from us will ensure a comfortable home for your household. Call us today at (281) 547-6177 for more information about our glass options.
