Thinking about replacing your old windows with energy efficient ones? You should know that every part of your window will play a huge role in not just its ability to lower your energy bills, but its overall performance too. This means that your choice of frame and glass can actually decide how your windows will perform. However, leading window contractors in Las Vegas, NV believe that while component is vital to the product’s energy efficiency, it’s the whole performance that’s most important.
So what are the factors that make companies like Renewal by Andersen the leading brand when it comes to energy-efficient windows? Here’s a rundown of each important component:
Our frames are made from Fibrex®, an innovative framing material developed by the Andersen Corporation. By blending forty percent wood fiber by weight and sixty percent thermoplastic polymer by weight, they’ve created one of the toughest framing materials in the market today. It’s twice as strong as vinyl, being able to resist rot, decay, and fungal growth. It also won’t flak, blister, peel, pit, or corrode. This means that no matter what climate you are in, it can retain its stability and rigidity so that watertight seals stay watertight. No leaks also means more energy-efficiency.
Fibrex’s insulating properties can also significantly help keep your energy consumption low. In fact, Fibrex can actually block thermal transfer nearly seven hundred times better than aluminum frames, and this will surely help in reducing your cooling and heating bills.
Renewal by Andersen offers three highly efficient kinds of glass:
• High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass – This is 45% more energy-efficient in winter and 56% more efficient in summer compared to ordinary dual pane glass.
• High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun ™glass – 47% more energy-efficient in winter and 70% more efficient in summer when compared to ordinary dual pane glass.
• High-Performance™ Low-E4® Sun glass – The perfect glass option for hot places like Las Vegas as it offers the highest rating against solar heat gain.
All your windows’ features and benefits will go to waste if they’re not installed properly. Poorly applied sealant, for instance, can actually cause a significant amount of leaks on a window and will compromise your windows’ energy performance. That’s why if you want your window installation project to go smoothly, you’ll want to consult Renewal by Andersen of Las Vegas.
Aside from quality products and proper installation, we also offer a wide array of window styles, including picture, double-hung, bay, bow, and casement windows in Las Vegas.
