Low-e windows (low-e stands for low emissivity) help save energy by reflecting harmful UV rays from the outside of the home and reflecting radiant heat back into the room. This keeps the home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
There are three main types of low-e glass.
The most obvious advantage of low-e windows is in energy cost savings by reducing heating and cooling costs.
They also reduce the amount of UV rays entering the house which prevents fading and damage to carpet and other flooring as well as drapes and furniture.
Low-e windows have less condensation during temperature and humidity extremes which reduces mold and mildew buildup and keeps the home’s environment healthier.
Low-e windows are completely transparent and allow light into the home without heat gain in the summer or heat loss in the winter. This makes the home more pleasant all the way around.
Low-e windows protect people and furnishings from harmful UV rays and create a healthier environment by reducing mold and mildew buildup from condensation. They also lower energy bills and keep the home more comfortable during temperature and humidity extremes while allowing plenty of light into the house.
