Window and Door Glazing: Appreciating Low-E4® Glass

Jun 06, 2018

At Dreamstyle Remodeling, we carry Renewal by Andersen® products because we’re a big believer in their advanced glazing system: the High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. It comes in different varieties with unique set of ratings, but no matter the style, it provides exceptional energy efficiency and a consistent level of comfort all year long.

Window and Door Glazing: Appreciating Low-E4® Glass

Here’s why windows and doors designed with the Low-E4 glass make homes far more energy-saving and naturally comfortable:

Thermal Insulation

In Bernalillo County, the highest U-factor ENERGY STAR® allows for windows and full-lite doors is 0.30 to meet North-Central Climate Zone’s energy efficiency requirements. Renewal by Andersen’s standard Low-E4 glass and SmartSun™ glass have 0.25 and 0.24 U-factor ratings, respectively, which exceed these standards. In other words, the glazing systems used in Renewal by Andersen windows and doors beat most products on the market, including most ENERGY STAR-certified ones.

Solar Heat Reflectivity

Low-E4 glass packages don’t allow the majority of the sun’s heat to pass through them. The standard option blocks 58%, while the SmartSun glass deflects up to 72%. By bouncing most of the solar heat back to the sky, Renewal by Andersen replacement windows and doors can regulate your indoor temperature efficiently.

Visible Light Transfer

While they reduce the transfer of heat inside and out of your home significantly, these windows don’t deny entry to desirable daylight. Either of them will illuminate your interior with ample sunlight. Despite their impressive energy ratings, the performance of Low-E4 glass options virtually have no effect on natural light’s color and clarity. As a result, they capture vibrant outdoor views and don’t affect the way the eye perceives things, which artificial lighting does.

Noise Abatement

If peace and quiet are part of your home improvement goals, Renewal by Andersen products can help you achieve them. In addition to having two panes with optimum air space in between, the Low-E glass system uses an argon gas blend for insulation. Argon increases the soundproofing characteristics of the window, allowing it to reduce unwanted, outdoor noise well.

Let Dreamstyle Remodeling help you choose the apt Low-E4 glass for your new windows and patio doors. Call us at (877) 721-1590 to schedule your in-home consultation, and get a free estimate in Albuquerque, NM.
