Materials that Make Our Windows Energy-EfficientDecember 21, 2016
In New York, many homeowners use their heating and cooling systems overtime to keep their interior comfortable. As a result, they notice a significant increase in their monthly energy costs. To prevent dealing with excessive energy loss, installing energy-efficient windows in Albany, NY, is a great choice.
At Huff ‘N Puff, we install window options that can help homeowners save on their energy bills. We have partnered with Renewal by Andersen®, the country’s largest and leading window manufacturer for more than a century. Through continuous innovations, they were able to produce energy-efficient windows that are unmatched in the industry. Let us discuss the materials that make these windows truly energy-efficient.
Unlike other manufacturers, Renewal by Andersen has created their own innovative framing material: Fibrex®. This durable material has outstanding insulation features like that of wood, keeping necessary heat inside your home all year long. In addition, it offers insulation that is 700 times better than aluminum. No matter the condition, Fibrex will stay intact when exposed to a shift in temperature, maintaining the proper structure of your composite windows.
Renewal by Andersen windows are available with three glass options, which differ in terms of their heating, cooling, UV protection, and visible light transfer properties. Their High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass is the standard type, offering 45% and 56% more energy efficiency in winter and summer, respectively. Their most energy-efficient package is the High-Performance Low-E4 SmartSun glass, which offers up to 70% more energy efficiency than ordinary dual panes. It can also block up to 95% of UV rays. If you need windows that can reduce visible light or glare, choose their High-Performance Low-E4 Sun glass. It has a coating that resists solar heat gain constantly.
Their double glazing, low-conductivity spacers, and argon gas blends are also very helpful in boosting the energy efficiency of Renewal by Andersen windows. They are responsible in enhancing the windows’ thermal performance, heat transfer resistance, and insulation. Additionally, Renewal by Andersen incorporates an advanced sealing technology in their windows, preventing moisture from penetrating your interior.
