3 Reasons Low-E Glass is a Better Option

Window glass has come a long way from the original incarnations in the early part of this century. More than just providing a view of the outside world, modern glass comes with many features and provides several benefits. In this entry, Renewal by Andersen® of Orange County looks at the three big reasons to get low-emissivity or Low-E glass.

1. Low-E glass is sturdier

Our replacement windows in Orange County, CA, ensure durability. Our low-emissivity option is called High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass and it features Perma-Shield® cladding. This forms a protective shell that repels water, resists dents, and stays great-looking for longer. It needs little in the way of maintenance and isn’t likely to peel, blister, or flake.

2. Low-E glass is healthier

On top of being resistant to things that damage glass easily, our Low-E glass is also protective against UV light. This spectrum of light can be damaging on furnishings, especially leather, and can be a cause of skin problems. While all our Low-E options offer protection against UV light, our SmartSun™ variant offers the most at 95 percent protection. This means that our windows keep you furnishings and yourself safe without compromising on sunlight and views.

3. Low-E glass saves you money

Whether you get our picture or double hung windows in Orange County, CA, the biggest draw of our windows is that they save you money off your energy bills. That is because our High-Performance Low-E4 glass is efficient at thermal regulation. That means that heat stays where you need it most—indoors during the winter, outdoors during the summer. You depend less on air conditioning and heating, resulting in lower energy spending monthly.

Renewal by Andersen of Orange County uses Low-E glass on all our window options, which include all of the most popular types out there. We pair this glass with our equally durable and energy-efficient Fibrex® frames that complement out glass perfectly.
