Window Glass Options for Energy Savings
Replacement windows can offer significant improvements in energy efficiency, due to advances in glass technology. Because most of the window surface is glass, replacement windows with better performing glass offer improved temperatures control and energy efficiency for homeowners in Wichita, KS, Leawood, KS, Overland Park, KS, and Lenexa.
Energy Efficient Glass for Replacement Windows
The energy efficiency of the glass is the most important component for better performance and energy efficiency. When selecting replacement windows for your home, you want to look for detailed information about the glass technology. At All States Exteriors, we offer advanced technology for window glass, including Low Emissivity or Low E glass in Soft Lite and Wincore Windows.
Low E glass is manufactured with a coating on the surface of the glass. The thin coating is not detectable, but is designed to retain heat in the winter and reflect heat in the summer months. This type of glass is cost effective, if you want to reduce your home heating and cooling costs. In addition, this glass blocks UV rays to help prevent fading of window treatments, carpets, and home furnishings.
In Low E windows, there are two or three panes of glass in one window that have an empty space filled with colorless gas. The gas between the panes of glass helps to prevent the transfer of heat and maintain a more consistent temperature in your home.
