Nowadays, windows are more than just windows. They’re an integral part of your home’s comfort, security, and energy efficiency. High-quality windows from California Energy Contractors can help your HVAC system work more efficiently, reduce carpet and furniture fading, and much more. We offer many different types of glass packages and upgrades depending on the climate you live in and your personal preferences. We’ve created a list of our various glass packages to help you get an idea of which ones are best suited for you! To start, let’s look at some of the premium upgrades we have available.
Premium Glass Features & Upgrades
- Sound Reduction Glass: The Anlin Sound Reduction Glass comes included with all Anlin Apex Xtreme replacement windows. This premium sound suppressing glass technology helps reduce outdoor noise by up to 50% compared to standard double pane windows.
- Laminated Glass: This glass upgrade significantly improves the security of your home. Anlin’s First Guard Laminated Security Glass meets stringent industry codes and passes the American Society of Testing Materials (ASTM) standard for preventing forced entry.
- Tempered Glass: Anlin’s 4X Tempered Safety Glass will improve your glass’s strength by up to four times compared to standard glass. If broken, the glass breaks into small circular pieces, considered a break-safe pattern. This tempered glass meets many industry safety codes, such as the CPSC 16CFR 1201 Category II and the ANSI Z97.1-2015.
