Back in 2008, Renewal by Andersen introduced our High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass – now the most energy-efficient option we carry! As heat is blocked, the innovative glass allows just as much daylight as clear glass to pass through.
High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass is a significant improvement over dual pane options. Resulting in energy savings over time, up to 25 percent, this glass is 70-percent more energy efficient in summer and 45-percent more in winter – our highest rating for cool weather. Throughout the year, it blocks 95 percent of all UV rays, which damage furniture and fade fabrics.
“Amid rising concern for our environment and the high costs of fuel, energy efficiency is at the forefront of everyone’s mind,” Jim Conway, marketing director at Renewal by Andersen, said when the product was introduced. “SmartSun glass offers homeowners the ability to save energy by blocking the sun’s heat while letting in the natural daylight.”
SmartSun™ rounds out all possible offerings from Renewal by Andersen, including High-Performance™ Low-E4®, High-Performance™ Low-E4® Sun, and high-performance patterned and tempered glass.
