Prepare to Save Money on Air Conditioning Bills Now & Heating Bills Later in New Jersey & New York
As spring begins to give way to summer in New Jersey and New York, some of us are starting to think about sitting under the shade tree enjoying a cool evening breeze before bedtime. Some of our friends and neighbors are thinking about hiding under the air conditioning vent as the mercury shoots up and humidity levels rise.
Whether you are looking forward to warmer weather, or you are dreading the scorching temperatures, you may already be thinking about how to control your air conditioning costs this year – especially if your your aging windows and patio doors meant you had trouble keeping your home warm this past winter. Now is the perfect time to start preparing your home for summer savings with energy-efficient replacement windows from Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey & New York Metro.
Updating your home’s single-pane – or even worn out double-pane – windows is essential if you are serious about saving money on air conditioning bills this summer. Modern replacement window technology ensures you won’t have to deal with air and moisture infiltrating your home through gaps and leaks or excessive heat transfer through the glass that drive home energy costs up with the rising mercury in the thermometer.
It’s true. Modern replacement windows keep conditioned air indoors and hot, muggy air outdoors, which means you have better control over your cooling, and heating, costs. But, it isn’t all about controlling airflow. Replacement window design choices give you options to get the highest return on your investment, and boost savings potential, by customizing every window in every room in your home.
While you’re deciding whether to replace a large picture window with a series of double-hung replacement windows to improve ventilation or considering color combinations that will enhance the appearance of your home, take some time to think the important role glass options play in converting your home into a more energy-efficient environment.
Replacement Window Glass Options For Superior Energy-Efficiency
Many factors influence home window energy-efficiency performance. For example, direct sunlight often means higher heat transfers levels, which can translate into higher air conditioning costs. Here is a quick summary of the different glass options available when you update your home with Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro replacement windows and patio doors.
#1. High-Performance Low-E4 Sun Glass
Designed specifically for windows that get lots of direct sunlight, High-Performance Low-E4 Sun Glass, filters out more heat from the sun than many other glass types. Using a barely perceptible coating, this glass option reduces visible light (glare) without obscuring your view through your window. And, since this glazing has the highest rating against solar heat gain among Renewal by Andersen glass choices, it will help keep your home cooler this summer.
#2. High Performance Low-E4 SmartSun Glass (with HeatLock)
Our newest replacement window glass technology – HeatLock – offers energy-efficiency comparable to triple-pane, without the additional costs. The factory-applied coatings on the glass reflect heat back into the room, preventing heated air from escaping during cold weather months. This glass works well in any room, but is especially suited to north facing windows that may be more difficult to keep warm during the winter.
#3. High Performance Low-E4 Glass
Our Low-E4 glass is a great performance option for our area because it works great in almost every setting. Compared to ordinary double-pane glass, High Performance Low-E4 is 47% more energy-efficient during cold weather and 56% more energy efficient during the summer season than ordinary dual pane glass. And, it also blocks 84% of those harmful UV rays found in natural sunlight that may prematurely age your upholstery and carpet.
#4. High Performance Low-E4 SmartSun
SmartSun is our most energy-efficient glass option for New Jersey & New York Metro homeowners. It blocks 95% of damaging UV rays, and compared to ordinary double-pane glass solutions, it is 70% more energy efficient during the hottest season. While this glass controls heat transfer as effectively as tinted glass, it doesn’t block any more natural light than clear glass. As another bonus, SmartSun reduces noise transfer – improving the overall comfort in your home.
