Energy Efficiency and Cost Savings

Poor performing windows are an energy drain and can account for a significant percentage of a home’s heat loss in winter and heat gain in the summer.*
Renewal by Andersen® window replacement can save you money on your energy bills. Our newest glass option, SmartSun™ glass, is our most energy efficient glass option.

Compared to ordinary dual-pane glass, SmartSun™ glass is**:

  • 70% more energy efficient in summer

  • 47% more energy efficient in winter

Plus, the great combination of our exclusive Fibrex® material, High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, and expert installation means your Renewal by Andersen windows have excellent NFRC ratings. Our ENERGY STAR® certified units are available with select glass options.

Environmental Commitment
