Energy efficient low-emissivity glass which is also known as Low-E glass has a special coating created to reduce the amount of heat escaping through windows or doors to the external cold environment.
Low-E Glass Benefits Explained
From the outside in, the glass also reduces the level of ultraviolet and infrared light that can go through the panes with minimal impact to the amount of visible light. The benefit to negligible ultraviolet rays is to prevent materials’ colours and furniture to fade, whereas infrared light is reflected to keep the inside cooler in the summer.
A lot of the older installations of double glazing windows and doors typically consist of standard clear glass as the Low-E technology was not available at the time. This means that they are not energy efficient as the more recent installations.
