How Replacement Windows Earn the ENERGY STAR® Label

You’ve probably seen that familiar square of white and blue on a gadget or appliance at least once. That’s the ENERGY STAR® label–which serves as a guide for consumers looking to purchase more energy-efficient products. If you see the label on an item you’re interested in buying, it means that it has passed stringent energy performance ratings.

Replacement Windows

You’ll also realize that the ENERGY STAR® label can be found on building products, such as replacement windows. But how exactly do they earn this label? The trusted home improvement company, Renewal by Andersen of Kansas City, shares what you need to know:

  • The windows should use a high-quality framing material. It should be a durable and low-maintenance material that reduces heat transfer and insulates your home better. The replacement windows offered by Renewal by Andersen of Kansas City meet this criteria. They use Fibrex®, a revolutionary material that combines wood’s strength and insulating properties with vinyl’s low-maintenance value. This allows for windows that keep a tough, airtight seal, preventing leakage and significant energy loss.

  • The windows should come with low-emissivity (Low-E) glass. This helps lower the potential for unwanted solar heat gain via your windows during the warm season. Our Renewal by Andersen® windows also use Low-E glass–except ours is a better version. The advanced High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass included in our window units effectively prevents solar heat from transferring into your living space and, at the same time, ensures that cooling or heating energy will remain inside your home.

  • The windows should deliver superior thermal performance. ENERGY STAR qualified windows typically have warm edge spacers and an inert gas fill between the panes. These ensure that your home will remain insulated from extreme outdoor temperatures. If you choose Renewal by Andersen of Kansas City for your window replacement, you’ll find that our double-pane window units come with stainless steel spacers and an argon gas blend. They work to maintain a pleasant and consistent indoor environment for your home–but minus the high energy bills.
