The Many Benefits of Low-E Glass

Homeowners who have been researching replacement windows have no doubt encountered the term “low-e glass.” Many new windows these days come equipped with low-e glass ­— which is short for low-emissivity glass — which is often touted as a fantastic window feature. But if you’re not familiar with the feature, you may find yourself wondering what the benefits of low-e glass are., What Are the Benefits of Low E Glass?

To be able to appreciate the benefits of low-e glass, it’s important to understand exactly what it is. Essentially, low-e glass is comprised of a transparent coating that goes on the inside of panes of glass in multi-paned windows. This coating provides several important benefits, including:

  • Thermal insulation — Low-e glass helps keep cool or warm air within the house better than uncoated glass. Whether you need to stay warmer in the winter or cooler in the summer, low-e glass helps insulate your home.
  • UV and heat reflection — In the same way that low-e glass helps insulate the inside of your home, it also helps lower the effects of light and heat from outside your home. Low-e glass significantly lowers the amount of heat that can enter your home, easing the burden on your HVAC system. Besides reflecting heat, another important benefit of low-e glass is that it helps lower the amount of UV light entering your home. UV light is the culprit behind the fading that can occur on furniture, floors, and walls.
  • No loss of light — The final piece of the puzzle for low-e glass is that it is not a tinting application. This means you can enjoy all of the temperature and UV light protection benefits of low-e glass without having it negatively effect the views from your windows.
