What Is Low-E Glass?
If you’ve been on the hunt for new replacement windows, then you’ve probably heard the term “low-E glass” thrown around a lot. But what, exactly, is low-E glass and what does it have to do with windows? Low-E, which stands for low emissivity, minimizes the amount of ultraviolet and infrared light that comes through your windows. Low-E is a glass coating that is incredibly thin and transparent, and reflects heat. Essentially, low-E forms a barrier between your home and the hot outside air so that the heat cannot enter your home. It also helps keep your furniture, carpeting, and other interior fabrics from fading due to UV sunlight. However, even though it limits the amount of UV and infrared light coming into your home through your windows, you’ll still enjoy maximum sunlight reception. But now, you can open your blinds to enjoy all of the sunshine you want without worrying about raising the indoor temperature of your home.
