- Excellent insulator preventing heat or cold transfer into or out of your home.
- Resistant to changes in temperature

Along with color, design and lifestyle benefits, the environmental benefits of how we make Fibrex® material led to Andersen Corporation becoming the first Green Seal Certified window manufacturer. All of the wood fibers used in the compounding process, as well as some of the thermoplastic polymer, are reclaimed directly from the 65-acre Andersen Corporation manufacturing plant operations in Bayport, Minnesota.

Energy Efficient Windows
Poor-performing windows can lose up to 40 percent of heating energy in winter. With the high cost of energy, that’s a lot of money going right out the window! Even worse (and often overlooked), poor-performing windows can lose up to 50 percent of a home’s cooling energy in summer. It’s expensive to have worn-out or inefficient windows.
Shopping for energy efficient replacement windows can be confusing, but an important factor to keep in mind is whole window performance. Renewal by Andersen’s® outstanding whole window performance is the result of the patented Fibrex® framing material, Andersen High-Performance™ Low-E4®, double pane glass, and professional installation.
Together, these elements will keep your home 35% more energy efficient in winter and 41% more efficient in summer*. Depending on where you live, that can cut your energy bills by up to 25%.
What’s the easiest and most accurate way to compare the energy efficiency of windows? Be sure the window displays an NFRC label. This label means the entire window unit has been tested, not just the center of the glass or part of the frame. The U-Factor is a better indicator of window performance than R-value. The lower the U-Factor the better the insulation properties.
*35% more energy efficient in winter and 41% in summer, as compared to ordinary dual pane glass. **A study of identical homes comparing Low-E4 glass to ordinary glass showed a 25% savings on cooling bills, 10% on heating. Savings may vary geographically. The NFRC logo is a registered trademark of the National Fenestration Rating Council.
Energy Efficient Glass
All window glass may look the same. But not all glass performs the same. Every Renewal by Andersen® window comes standard with High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. While you can’t see the differences in glass, you will appreciate them. Compared to ordinary dual-pane glass, High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass is 35% more energy efficient in winter and 41% more efficient in summer. * High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass also features an invisible titanium dioxide (TiO2) coating on the exterior glass surface that makes cleaning easier. When activated by sunlight, the coating loosens dirt from the glass so it can be washed away by rain. And it makes the exterior glass surface dry faster with up to 99% fewer water spots.** Our glass is even protected on both sides by a removable film that helps shield it from damage. When it comes to energy efficiency, this type of glass, or glazing, stands head and shoulders above single pane or ordinary double pane glass.
There are Five Key Components to energy efficient glass. Details make all the difference in long-term performance:
1. NEW High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass stays cleaner, reduces water spotting up to 99% and cuts energy bills up to 25%
2. Nearly-invisible TruScene® insect screen option
3. Traditional look of mortise-and-tenon joinery
4. Variety of interior and exterior colors, grille patterns, glass and hardware options
5. Durable design helps seal out wind and rain
*Exterior of glass only, when activated by sunlight. A study of identical homes comparing Low-E to ordinary dual-pane glass showed a 25% savings on cooling bills, 10% on heating. Savings may vary geographically.
Double-Hung Window Color Options
When you customize your Renewal by Andersen® windows, you’ll be able to choose colors that are really right for your home. You can select the same color for both the interior and exterior, or you can combine any exterior color with a stainable wood or white interior. Troublesome maintenance becomes a thing of the past, since our colors will not flake, rust, blister, peel, crack, pit, or corrode.*
Window Grille Options
Grilles are a classic way to customize your windows and complement your home’s architectural style. Renewal by Andersen® grilles have a solid or dual-colored finish to match both your interior and exterior window color selection.
