Glazing, or the glass portion of the window, is the most important part of every window. The right glass package can dramatically improve indoor comfort and help you save on your energy costs in Nashville. This is why all Renewal by Andersen® replacement doors and windows come equipped with High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. Here’s a closer look at these glass packages.
Glass naturally conducts heat, which makes traditional, single-pane window glass problematic as it could allow heat to easily pass through, a phenomenon known as heat transference. During cold days, this would cause indoor heat to seep out while the reverse happens during hot days. The indoor cooling and heating systems would then use up more power to make up for the temperature difference, leading to higher monthly energy costs.
A double-pane glass solves this problem, thanks to the space between the two glass panes. Eliminating contact between interior and exterior surfaces dramatically reduces heat conduction and helps reduce your energy consumption. Unwanted ultraviolet (UV) and infrared rays, the latter being the source of heat from sunlight, are also blocked, thanks to spectrally selective low-emissivity (Low-E) coatings.
Our High-Performance Low-E4 glass, which comes standard on all Renewal by Andersen window replacement units in Nashville, have all the aforementioned features. Combined with our energy-efficient Fibrex® material frames and sashes as well as features like an external coating that reduces water spotting when activated by sunlight, you have the most feature-packed custom replacement windows available. Our glass packages include the following:
High-Performance Low-E4 Glass – The standard Renewal by Andersen glass package is 47% more energy efficiency in winter and up to 56% more efficient during summer compared to ordinary double-pane glass.
