Low E Glass
Also known as Low Emissivity Glass
Low E Glass has a thin, transparent metallic coating that reduces the transfer of heat or cold through the glass.
Meaning in the winter your home stays warmer and in the summer it stays cooler.
It's helpful to think of Low E glass like insulation panels for your home.
Where greater solar and thermal control is required in the absence of natural heating, Low-E Glass can be used.
Also an option to consider towards the Energy Efficiency Rating for new homes, especially in cases where plenty of light is desired.
