It’s natural for people to get excited over anything new—windows and doors included. However, one of the biggest mistakes a homeowner can make is to replace a component of their home with the exact same thing. After all, when you’re already replacing, you might as well upgrade!
One of the easiest ways to know if your new appliance or component is an upgrade is by looking at its energy efficiency. At Renewal by Andersen® of Phoenix, our windows are synonymous with energy-efficient construction. Here, we answer common questions about our window products and how they let you enjoy being at home—without consuming too much power.
1. What do energy-efficient windows contribute to your home?
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Energy efficiency allows you to enjoy the same utility you expect from your appliances, but with less energy consumed. As for our windows, our airtight seals and double-pane construction prevents thermal transfer—from outside during summer, and from the interior during winter. This means your heating and cooling systems don’t have to overwork just to provide you a comfortable temperature.
2. What is the ENERGY STAR® label?
ENERGY STAR is a program of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). ENERGY STAR gives consumers to find a more energy-efficient alternative for common household products, including appliances and electronics. All our products—from sliding windows to our hinged French door lineup—have the ENERGY STAR label.
3. What is low-E glass?
Low-e glass stands for “low emissivity.” This is glass specially designed to filter out ultraviolet and infrared light that comes through your windows without affecting the amount of visible light that comes through. As our windows use low-E glass, you get windows that block heat and harmful UV radiation but just as clear as regular glass, if not more so.
