Low-E Glass Windows
Low-E glass, which is short for low emissivity, is a unique metallic coating that makes glass panes resistant to glare and prevents some of the intrusion of the sun's UV rays. This type of glass has become popular in recent years because of the numerous benefits provided, including helping protect your home's furniture, carpeting and curtains from excessive sun damage.
Low-E glass also has the ability to lower energy use in an occupancy fitted with this technology. Since visible light is permitted entry without the accompanying presence of heat rays, homes and offices with Low-E glass windows stay cooler in summer and warmer in winter. This allows for greater comfort control and reduces the requirement for air condition use. Replacing older windows with new, efficient Low-E insulated windows is a worthwhile investment in occupancy comfort and energy conservation.
