As described by the Colorado Climate Center, Colorado experiences a semi-arid climate. It experiences dry winters with wind-blown snowstorms and extremely low temperatures. Spring in Colorado is usually windy with variable weather and temperature. Summer can get quite uncomfortable due to the heat, occasional thunderstorms and hail. Fall is the best Colorado season perhaps, because it’s fairly pleasant and dry.
The kind of replacement windows in Colorado Springs that Renewal by Andersen® installs are perhaps your best bet to protecting your home against Colorado’s highly variable weather. At least 25% of heat is lost through windows, research shows. That’s why an energy-efficient windows are essential in Colorado.
Here at Renewal by Andersen, we take pride in the energy-efficient features of our windows. We don’t just focus on a specific part of a window to make it energy-efficient; we focus on the whole window performance for a total package. We focus on three areas: (1) frame (2) glass and (3) professional installation.
Our windows are made from Fibrex®, a revolutionary composite material composed of 40% reclaimed wood. It fuses the low-maintenance features of vinyl and the sturdiness of wood. It also excels in thermal conductivity. It doesn’t easily bend and bow like vinyl does, so you can expect slimmer frames for better views of the outside, even during extreme temperatures. The innate strength of this composite material also allows us to make narrower window frames without sacrificing durability and weather resistance. As a result, our casement windows have larger glass areas that provide you larger exterior views for better daylighting.
We have three different kinds of glass options:
The High-Performance™ Low-E4® standard glass is 56% more energy-efficient in summer and 45% more efficient in winter than your regular double-pane glass. It can also block 85% of UV rays that can damage your furniture.
The High-Performance Low-E4 SmartSun™ glass is perhaps the most energy-efficient glass that we offer because it’s 70% more efficient in summer and 47% more efficient in winter. It can also block 95% of UV rays.
The High-Performance Low-E4 Sun™ glass has the highest solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) rating. It has tint coatings that help in reducing the amount of light that goes into your home.
These superior glass options further enhance the utility of the window styles we offer. Our double-hung windows and gliding window systems benefit the most from our superior glazing as these window styles have large glass areas that usually allow intense light to enter your home. With our high-performance glass, however, you protect your home and furniture from intense UV light without sacrificing exterior views. These energy-efficient glass options will also secure stable comfort levels for your home.
As for the installation process, we make it a point that we are able to measure your window frames accurately so that your windows will perfectly fit in it. Furthermore, we make sure that proper installation is observed so that there will be no cause for air gaps. We always do in-depth inspection of your home first so we can custom-fit your new replacement windows.
