Can upgrading my window glass really save me money?

glassoptionsIf your current windows have a single pane of “regular” glass (or even a double pane!) you are not getting energy performance you deserve. Advances in glass technology have resulted in a glass package that keeps your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer.

Low-E glass(“low emission”) maximizes your home’s energy efficiency by reducing the amount of heat entering or escaping. Low-E glass has a thin layer of oxidized metal on one side, which greatly enhances the glass insulating properties. Heat and light are allowed to enter, but the thin metal sheen does not allow heat or light back out. The glass is still transparent.

In addition, the multiple panes of glass in our glass “packages” are sandwiched around a sealed chamber of inert gas, either argon or krypton. These chambers further enhance the window’s ability to prevent heat loss through conduction, keeping you warmer in winter and cooler in summer.

Low-E glass is the ultimate in thermal performance and energy savings!
