Glass is one of the most widely used building materials in construction today. It is used in multiple house components like doors and windows. And because of its versatility, technological advancements led to the Low-E (or Low Emissivity) glass used in many homes.
What makes Low-E glass for replacement windows special? Renewal by Andersen® of New Mexico talks about the benefits it brings to your home.
Lowers Energy Bills
One great benefit you’ll receive from Low-E glass is having a significant amount slashed off your energy bills. The Low-E glass works like a barrier against air leaks or heat gain for windows. This means your HVAC unit won’t have to work twice as hard to maintain the thermal levels in your home.
Enhances Comfort Level
One of the primary reasons Low-E glass exists is to keep indoor temperatures optimal. With ordinary glass, heat can easily affect indoor temperatures on a hot day, and the same is true come the chilly months. Comfort is compromised, so your heating and cooling equipment has to work harder to compensate.
Low-E glass windows increase your comfort level by keeping the indoor temperature inside and the outdoor climate outside. Not only do they help lower your energy usage but they also improve your quality of living.
Reduces Heat Gain
The thin coating prevents infrared and UV rays from fading your furniture and carpets and affecting your indoor temperature. It reflects the harsh effects of the sun while keeping your window glass free from damage. Since the heat gain is significantly less, you’ll feel more at ease during summer days.
