Made primarily from a material called Fibrex, the 100 Series windows are low-maintenance and built to last for years down the road. They are twice as flexible as vinyl and won’t bend, flake, peel or corrode like traditional windows.
In addition to dependability, there are more choices that put homeowners in charge of creating the look they want. They offer nine grille options, as well as several color choices and size options to choose from. All windows are completed with a matte finish and low-profile hardware.
Cool Glass Options
Perhaps the most important option that the 100 Series offers, however, are glass varieties that can up the energy efficiency of each window:
- Low-E Glass
- SmartSun Glass
- Patterned Glass
Low E-Glass is the standard option and meets the Energy Star qualifications for any climate zone. SmartSun Glass is an upgrade that offers the most energy-efficient glass available. By blocking 95 percent of the sun’s rays, these windows can drastically reduce cooling costs. Patterned Glass is similar to Low E-Glass, but offers extra privacy that other windows don’t.
Energy Tax Credits
To help homeowners cash in on the energy tax credit currently offered by the government, Andersen Windows offers an EcoExcel package outlining the windows that qualify for the credit. The SmartSun glass windows, for instance, are currently receiving 30 percent back with the program.
If living green is your goal, the 100 Series can certainly help you get there. Plus, they’re just great-looking windows for any home.
But don’t take our word, read all about the 100 Series straight from Andersen (PDF).
