Auburn Hills, MI (July 14, 2008) – Homeowners in colder climates can now cut down on heating costs and reap energy savings with the new ClimaGuard® 75/68 low-E glass from Guardian Industries.

Made specifically for residential windows, ClimaGuard 75/68 provides unprecedented protection from the cold with superior insulation and clarity.

With energy costs and consumption growing concerns for many homeowners, having the right glass can address both issues. According to Environment America, high efficiency windows can be six times more energy efficient than more typical windows. ClimaGuard 75/68 low-E glass allows in 75 percent of the sun’s natural light while also allowing in 68 percent of the sun’s heat to warm homes naturally. Its U-value of .28 provides excellent insulation while maintaining high heat gain.

“Homeowners can increase energy savings with ClimaGuard 75/68 low-E glass,” said Scott Thomsen, chief technology officer for Guardian Industries. “It is raising the bar in residential glass and meets or exceeds Energy Star requirements in all northern zones -- while at the same time providing superior aesthetics.”

Homes in colder climates will benefit from ClimaGuard 75/68’s performance in extreme temperatures. It insulates 42 percent better than double-clear glass, retaining heat and warmth to lower energy use and bills. The high-performance glass maintains a comfortable, consistent interior temperature even through severe weather. The climate control, coupled with the glass’ neutral appearance, puts ClimaGuard 75/68 at the front of residential glass innovation and provides maximum energy savings benefits to homeowners who no longer have to choose between energy savings and aesthetics. ClimaGuard 75/68 low-E glass lets homeowners enjoy the view and the savings.

ClimaGuard 75/68 joins Guardian’s complete line of high-performance low-E residential glass products that are designed for all climates throughout North America.
