Learn About Low-E Glass Packages
Low-E glass is a fairly new advancement in window technology. Renewal® windows utilize Low-E glass to increase energy efficiency and limit the harmful effects of the sun on your home.
“Low-E” stands for low emissivity. In a Low-E windows, a special coating changes the thermal properties of the glass, absorbing thermal energy, UV rays, and IR rays that normal glass allows through. By limiting the amount of harmful IR rays that enter your home, a Low-E glass window prevents temperature fluctuations that can impact the amount of energy you use. It can also help your furniture, as UV rays tend to fade colors over time.
Other window companies carry windows that are not produced using Low-E glass, and drive up the cost of window replacement when you ask for it. But at Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City, each window is manufactured using Low-E glass.
In order to be sure that any window you purchase, from Renewal® or otherwise, utilizes Low-E glass, you can check for the EnergyStar rating. This rating generally appears as a sticker on the glass itself and will tell you if the window carries Low-E glass as well as the energy efficiency ranking the of the window as a whole.

And when installed by a certified, factory trained professional from Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City, your new windows will remain efficient for the duration of their lifespan.
