4 Benefits of investing in Low-E Glass Windows

Saying yes to the things you want may be a challenge for you. Money doesn’t grow on trees, as you know all too well. However, what if that new window installation isn’t just a want; it’s a need too?

Low-E glass window use and production began in the late 80s. Since then, they have increasingly become the popular option for new window installs; and for plenty of good reasons!

Let’s look at the benefits Low-E glass windows have to offer!

  1. Energy Efficient

Low-E windows are short for Low Emittance. Glass windows are coated with a non-toxic film that blocks infrared light from outside. So, on a hot and sunny Twin Cities day, Low-E glass windows bounce UV rays away from your home’s interior, keeping your home at a stable temperature, thus cutting down on your daily energy consumption.

In short, Low-E glass windows begin to save you money year in and year out when it comes to your energy costs.

  1. Protects Indoor Furniture & Belongings

Another benefit of Low-E glass windows bouncing harmful UV rays away from your home is the protection of your interior belongings. UV rays cause colors on fabric to fade rapidly. So, Low-E glass windows save your furniture, carpets, drapes, and any other belonging in your home from premature replacement.

  1. Plenty of Natural Light

Of course, the main goal in getting new windows for your home is to have a great view while gaining natural lighting. While Low-E glass windows block UV and infrared rays, they don’t block out all light. Low-E doesn’t allow as much light as non-treated glass but still filters plenty of natural light into your home to brighten the interior.

  1. Lower Condensation Retention

As you may have seen in the summer, condensation builds up on some windows during a humid day. While seeing this isn’t an immediate cause for concern, the constant moisture build-up causes damage over time like mold or mildew. Low-E glass eliminates condensation buildup, keeping your window and window frame secure and dry.
