You would need to change the properties that make up the elements in the window construction which is usually the WindowMaterial:Glazing and WindowMaterial:Gas. The calculation of SHGC is based on these detailed properties. You can also try to use the WindowMaterial:SimpleGlazingSystem object but beware of the cautions for that object.
