You should always take energy efficiency into account when investing in a home improvement project, such as window replacement. After all, windows are more than just a design element that adds to your home’s curb appeal – they can also make a huge difference to its thermal comfort and energy consumption. Here are the most often questions asked about them.
1. How do you know your new windows are energy-efficient? One of the simplest ways to know is to look for the blue-and-white ENERGY STAR® label on them. This means the window unit has met the stringent energy performance ratings set by this esteemed program. The replacement windows offered by Renewal by Andersen® of Boise are all ENERGY STAR qualified. When you work with us for your window replacement, you can expect your new units to provide superior energy-saving performance.
2. What exactly is Low-E glass? This refers to window glass with microscopically thin low-emissivity (Low-E) coatings that help reduce heat transfer to your home. While standard Low-E glass is already effective, we offer something that’s even better. Renewal by Andersen of Boise offers some of the best replacement windows available today. They come with our advanced High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass, which minimizes the amount of infrared and ultraviolet (UV) light entering your living space. It keeps your rooms cooler and more comfortable while lowering your air conditioning bills.
3. Care to elaborate on double-pane windows? They are just that: windows that come with two glass panes, plus an insulated space between them that’s filled with inert gas. The replacement windows offered Renewal by Andersen of Boise are double-paned, with the space filled with argon gas. Compared to double-pane windows that use only air space, our double-pane windows provide better thermal insulation, which helps improve the windows’ energy efficiency and overall performance.
