Quality Window Materials Are Key
The materials and the construction of the window plays an important role in determining the energy efficiency of the replacement windows. From the frame to the installation, you want a window that’s well constructed and includes the latest technology. One of the most important ones to understand is Low-e glass.
Although it’s not the only reason new windows are more energy efficient than older ones, Low-e glass is one of the most important features in energy efficient replacement windows. Whether you choose double or triple pane windows, what makes a window’s glass low-e is the invisible metal or metal oxide film that lets the light in while redirecting heat back to its source. This keeps your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. It’s applied to the inside of the window between the panes of glass so it won’t require special cleaning or scratch off.
The low-e coating can result into formation of ‘soft’ or ‘hard’ coat depending upon whether it’s added during or after the manufacturing process. Out of the two, soft coat is considered to be more efficient and delicate. An added benefit is the UV protection low-e glass provides so your carpets and furniture colors won’t fade as quickly.
