3 Factors That Make Our Windows Energy-Efficient

Modern replacement windows are much more energy-efficient when compared with their older countertops. Today’s windows have certain features that can greatly reduce energy loss and can help make the interior feel more comfortable.

1. Glazing

Modern windows have two glass panes that work together to reduce the amount of heat that enters or escapes through the window. At Renewal by Andersen®, we optimized the width of the air space between the glass of our replacement windows for maximum energy efficiency. We also use a durable, low-conductivity spacer to separate these panes. Our thin yet strong stainless steel spacer conducts less energy than aluminum spacers.

2. Glass

We have covered both the insides and outsides of our window glass with spectrally selective low-emissivity (low-E) coatings. These coatings greatly improve the energy efficiency of our windows. Our low-E coatings reflect heat away from the window. This prevents solar heat from entering your home on a sunny day, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of natural light without any downsides.

3. Gas Fills

The space between our glass panes is filled with a specially formulated argon gas blend. This argon gas blend is odorless and nontoxic. It is also denser than air, and this allows them to act as invisible barriers that prevent ultraviolet (UV) rays and heat from entering the home. Our argon gas blend improves the insulation of our replacement windows.

Our windows are ENERGY STAR® rated, which means that they have undergone third-party testing, and they are incredibly energy-efficient. Our windows can improve your home’s energy efficiency and make your home feel more comfortable all-year-round. We serve many areas in Texas, including Sugar Land.
