Energy Loss Using Traditional Glass       

With normal glass you experience the full heat of summer and the harsh cold of winter without any protection. You then have to rely on your energy infrastructure, but since lots of heat produced is lost to the environment your energy bills will soar. If you are serious about saving the money this is a big reason why you should Install Low-E Glass this Fall.

What is Low E Glass?

Low E Glass is simply glass with low-E coating. To fully understand low E coating you need to understand the solar energy spectrum. The solar energy spectrum consists of Ultra violet light, Infrared and visible light. Ultraviolet light is what causes the fading of interior materials such as wall coverings to fade. Infrared is the transmission of heat and visible light is self-explanatory. Low-E glass is designed to minimize the amount of infrared and ultraviolet light than can pass through glass.

How Low E Glass Works

Low E glass makes your building cooler during the summer and warmer during the winter. This reduces the need to rely on your air conditioning and thus lowers the expenses. Low E glass works in such a way that solar heat is reflected back into the environment without blocking any of the light. During winter the heat produced in your home is optimally utilized because it is reflected back into the building rather than lost to the environment.
