How Low-E Glass Works
While the material of the window frame makes a difference, the energy efficiency of your replacement windows is
mostly determined by the glass that is used - which is why we recommend windows with a Low-E coating.
Low-E glass gets its name from the low-emissivity film that coats the window pane. Made out of an invisible metal or
metal oxide film, this reflective material admits light while redirecting heat back to its source. This means that hot
summer air is kept outside, and your home’s heating is reflected back inside in the winter – it’s
worthwhile year round!
The Low-E coating can be added either during or after the manufacturing process, resulting in either a
“soft” or “hard” coat. A soft coat is more efficient, but it’s also more delicate; your
window expert can help you choose the right glass for your replacement window.
Why Choose a Window With a Low-E Coating?
The answer to this question might seem obvious– Low-E glass is energy efficient. But this material also offers
some additional benefits.
