This winter, you’ll need energy-efficient windows that help keep your indoors warm and comfortable. Fortunately, Renewal by Andersen® have replacement windows in Seattle, WA, that feature superior energy efficiency, among its other benefits.
Energy Efficiency Basics
Energy efficiency revolves around preventing heat loss. To do so, your home has to have insulation from outside conditions, which ideally should prevent interior heat loss during cold days. It should also prevent ambient exterior heat from seeping into your home during hot days. Heat from sunlight or infrared days is another source of unwanted indoor heat. Ultimately, an insulated home should be able to maintain a stable interior temperature. This reduces reliance on cooling and heating equipment, leading to more energy savings and lower utility bills.
Contractors can easily apply insulation to walls, doors, and the attic through sheets or blown-in insulation. Windows, however, present a different challenge as it’s mostly glass, a naturally conductive material. Plus, it also lets infrared light through, which is another source of indoor heat.
How Our Windows Make Your Home Comfortable
As one of the trusted window contractors in Seattle, WA, we offer replacement windows with dual-glaze High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. The glass panels are separated by non-conductive spacers that create an airspace which virtually eliminates contact between panels and minimizes heat conduction. We can fill this airspace with an odorless, non-toxic argon gas that acts as an insulating element. This way, either side will not conduct heat.
The low-E coating filters up to 72% of infrared rays from direct sunlight and blocks up to 95% of harmful UV rays. The latter is a part of sunlight that fades carpets, drapes, and other valuables. The low-E coating does all of this while letting as much visible light as clear glass does, ensuring constant indoor comfort any season.
The above features add up to provide the most comfortable indoor experience windows can provide. In addition to indoor comfort, our customization options also make our windows the most beautiful units you can have. Our finish combinations and hardware options will fit any style, and our industry-leading warranties ensure years of smooth, problem-free operation.
