Saving With Energy Efficiency
Drafty, old plain-glass windows can gain heat in the summer and lose heat in the winter, making it a challenge to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. As your home’s heating or cooling system works overtime to keep up, the excessive energy consumption can cause your utility bills to skyrocket.
Renewal by Andersen® of South Louisiana offers an energy-efficient solution: windows crafted with Low-Emissivity (Low-E) glass. In essence, Low-E glass has a microscopically thin, transparent surface coating that reflects radiant infrared energy, keeping heat on the same side of the window that it originates on without interfering with the transmission of visible light.
No matter where you live, you can potentially save money by installing windows with Low-E glass. Renewal by Andersen has an ideal type of Low-E window glass for every climate:
