Homeowners require the best materials when investing in windows but don’t want to break the bank. This is why energy-efficient windows have become so popular in recent years. Let Renewal by Andersen® of Seattle help answer some of the most commonly asked questions by homeowners regarding energy-efficient windows.1. What makes a window energy-efficient?
Today, an energy-efficient window is much more than a window that opens and shuts correctly and with a tight seal. Today’s energy-efficient windows provide so much more. They help in controlling the ventilation and air quality indoors. Depending on the type of glass used, the window will deflect harmful UV rays.
2. What are the materials of an energy-efficient window?
If you need a window replacement in Seattle, make sure to choose Low-E (low emissivity) glass. This is considered the most energy-efficient kind of glass, since it is coated with metal oxide. This coating allows the sunlight and heat inside, but keeps the room cozy by decreasing the amount of heat filtering back out.
Renewal by Andersen of Seattle offers High Performance™ Low-E4® glass, complemented by the exclusive Fibrex frame and sash material. Together, these can make for a durable, weathertight, energy-efficient window in your home.
3. How do we know if a window is energy-efficient?
To guide you in determining which window manufacturer’s products are truly energy-efficient, simply look for the ENERGY STAR rating of the product. This label can be found on home parts such as doors, windows, or appliances. This means that the product has been tested and has passed certification. Products with this seal of approval can result in savings of up to 15% in energy costs for homeowners.
Whether it’s your entry door or bay windows for your Seattle home, you can count on Renewal by Andersen of Seattle to provide you quality products with professional service. We offer a range of products and services to make sure your home improvement project will be a success.
