Window Innovations: Looking Through the Low-E Glass

The economy may have taken a downward turn in recent years, but the window market has held its own. In fact, reports from Professional Remodeler Magazine indicates an increase in demand for replacement windows. Just ask any window replacement contractor in Atlanta and surrounding areas; they’re bound to tell you that business is picking up.

With increased demand come waves of innovation from businesses aiming to make their products stand out. At the forefront of these innovation waves are energy-efficient glass options. Over the years, we have seen vast improvements in the solar and thermal-efficient technology. A good example is Low-emissivity or Low-E glass. What are the benefits of using this type of glass for your windows?

  • Special coating. Low-E glass has a special coating that is designed to reduce the amount of heat transferred through the glass. This means that during winter, less heat is lost through the glass. In summer, the opposite happens: heat from the outdoors doesn’t pass through the glass and cool air is kept inside.
  • Visible light. Low-E glass coating is microscopically thin and transparent. This means that despite having multiple layers for improved insulation, its ability to let in natural light is not compromised.
  • Savings. The ability of the glass to help maintain the temperature inside your home means less work for your cooling and heating systems, which can later translate into reduced utility bills for your household.
