Every homeowner wants the right windows in Roseville, CA, but that doesn’t mean everyone knows how to find them. There are a lot of new technologies involved with windows today and there are plenty of material choices as well. Which glazing technologies give you the best insulation? Is the added cost worth the extra energy efficiency? Let’s take a look at low-e glass windows to see if they might be a right choice for your purposes.
First, it is important to understand what these windows are like in the first place. Low-E glass is glass that has been coated with a thin substance that reflects heat. Most often, the windows are double pane and have coatings on the inside and outside of the glass. There are also triple pane options to help with heat reflection even more. This reflection works well in all seasons of the year because in the winter, it reflects the heat back into the house and in the summer, it reflects the heat out and doesn’t allow it in.
Low-E glass allows you to keep your home at a comfortable temperature with more ease. You don’t have to worry about too much heat getting in (or going out) and your HVAC system works less to keep things on an even level where you want it to be. Your home is more comfortable all the way around.
No one wants to shut the blinds on their house at all times just because the sun is too hot. Natural lighting it important to any homeowner. Low-E glass takes those worries away and you can open your blinds without the heat of the sun getting into the house. The UV rays stay out while the natural light streams in. You don’t have premature fading on your flooring or furniture, either.
Paying more for your energy than you have to is not something anyone wants and low-E glass can help with that. Since you keep your air inside and the outside air out, the low-e glass has a way of reducing your energy bills even further than regular energy efficient windows. You can pay yourself back for the extra cost with those reduced bill savings. It’s always nice to have a lower monthly bill and those savings can really add up over the years.
