How Will Low-E Glass Windows Improve Your Home

Low-E, or Low emissivity coatings are becoming a standard for replacement windows because of the excellent insulation and energy savings it provides.  Low-E glass windows offer exceptional protection against UV rays, and you’ll be able to see the difference on your energy bills immediately.

Emissivity refers to the amount of heat energy that a surface absorbs, or lets through, so to speak.  Having low emissivity means that very little heat energy is absorbed by that surface, and that most of the heat will reflect away.  By adding this technology to windows, you end up with a more efficient home as a whole.

What Are Low-E Glass Windows?

Low-E is actual a thin coating that is applied to the glass surface of some windows.  This coating reflects heat away from the window, instead of letting it pass through like normal glass.  This means that during colder temperatures, your windows will reflect the heat energy from inside to actually keep it in, and in the summer it will reflect it from the outside to keep extra heat out.

This translates to a smaller amount of energy needed to heat and cool your home.  By keeping heat where you want it, depending on the season, you’ll be spending less each month on your energy bills, which is a life-long return on your replacement window investment.

All of the window brands that we offer at Scottish Home Improvements work with one or more types of Low-E glass windows.  Alside windows and Pella windows are both exceptional in quality and efficiency, and you will be making a fantastic upgrade to your entire home with windows from either of these established manufacturers.
