As we suffer from yet another heat wave, you may be thinking about how to keep your home cool and keep your energy bills low. One of the ways many Marylanders are keeping their homes cool is with low emissivity (Low-E) glass windows. Let’s take a moment to talk about what is Low-E glass and how it can benefit your home.
What is Low-E Glass?
Low-e glass is used to reflect heat back to its source instead of allowing it to enter your home. Each piece of glass is coated with a microscopically thin layer of metal glazing, or metallic oxide, that is used to redirect this heat and to prevent it from entering your home. During the winter months, this same coating will work to keep the heat inside your home. Most importantly, this glass will keep your home cool while letting the light in.
Benefits of Low-E Glass
There are many different benefits to installing Low-E glass windows in your home. The first benefit is saving money. Since Low-E glass keeps your interior at the perfect temperature all year around, your air conditioner or heating system will not have to run constantly to keep your home nice. The same coating that keeps the heat outside of your home also works to keep your Low-E windows from fogging up with condensation. This condensation is dangerous as it can help foster mold growth in your home. But with Low-E glass windows, your home will be kept safe from the dangers of mold. Did you know infrared rays are responsible for heat as well as causing fabrics and wood to fade? But when you have Low-E windows installed in your home, your home’s furnishings are safe from fading as these rays are kept out of your home.
Low-e glass is available on many different styles of windows and is used in many of the new replacement windows available today. These windows will protect your home all year long. For more information on installing Low-E glass windows in your home, call Chandler Remodeling today!
