Have you ever considered installing Low-E windows in your home? If you are not familiar with the concept, you are not alone. Many homeowners aren’t aware of the amount of energy lost because of their windows. According to one estimate, about 70% of the heat lost in your average home is because of doors and windows. Since this is the case, you do well to learn some more about the benefits of Low-E windows.
Low-E stands for low emissivity, and it is a window with a pain that blocks infrared and ultraviolet light. These windows will serve you well year round, since they will reflect the sun’s heat away in the summertime, while they will reflect your heat back inside in the wintertime. The amazing thing is that they accomplish this without noticeably lowering the amount of light that comes in through the windows. There are different coatings that are used that all have different ratings for how much of the heat it will reflect, so it is good to do some research before deciding on which windows to install.
