Low E glass what is it?(September 20, 2013)
You've been told that you need low E glass to certain windows, why? Low E glass (stands for Low Emissivity) is different to normal clear glass as it has properties that radiate a low level thermal heat energy, what does this mean, basically it reflects heat! This heat reflection is on the outside & the inside, therefore, if you have windows that have a lot of SHG (solar heat gain), which are windows that sunlight is on or if you have a room that you need to continually have to keep warm during winter (keep the heat in), Low E glass will assist in keeping the heat in & the heat out depending on what your requirements are.
