Our windows feature many innovative features to improve their energy efficiency. These include low-conductivity spacers, more effective sealing methods, low-emissivity coatings, and insulating gas fills. Here’s how our insulating gas fills work and how our windows can save you money:
How Insulating Gas Fills Work
Gas fills are viscous, slow-moving gases between the glass panes of an insulated glass unit. Window manufacturers use these gases because they improve a window’s thermal efficiency. Gas fills like argon and krypton minimize convective currents within the window and reduce heat transfer. As an expert in window replacement, we use an argon gas blend for our windows. Argon is non-toxic, inert, clear, and odorless. It also creates an efficient thermal barrier.
Energy-Efficient Window Features
Our windows also have other energy-efficient features. They have a low conductivity spacer. Renewal by Andersen manufactures this spacer from stainless steel. This allows our spacer to be thin but strong, conducting less energy. Renewal by Andersen also manufactures our gliding windows and other window types from Fibrex® material. Fibrex is a composite that acts as an excellent insulator.
Our window glass also features a spectrally selective multi-layer low emissivity coating that reflects heat. This keeps your home cool in summer, warm in winter, and reduces the workload on your utilities. Our windows’ dual seal system also reduces air leaks and energy loss.
Benefits of Our Replacement Windows
All these features make our replacement windows some of the most energy-efficient in the market today. They are 56% more energy-efficient in summer and 45% more energy-efficient in winter compared with ordinary dual-pane glass. Our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass can also minimize the effect of the sun’s harmful UV rays. Finally, our casement window and other window types can reduce your energy bills by up to 25%.
Our energy-efficient replacement windows can save you significant amounts of money, making them an excellent investment. They also make your home a more comfortable place.
