Can upgrading my window glass really save me money?
If your current windows have a single (or even a double!) pane of “regular” glass 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 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.
Insulating glass is two or more gas panes separated by an air space to reduce thermal transfer. The multiple panes of glass are sandwiched around a sealed chamber of inert gas, either argon or krypton. These “gas fill” chambers further enhance the window’s ability to prevent heat loss through conduction, keeping you warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
Insulating glass, Low-E technology and the use of gas fills are the ultimate in thermal performance and energy savings!
