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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
