Benefits of Low-e Glass

Low-e (low emissivity) glass offers a range of benefits, making it a popular choice for windows and glass applications in both residential and commercial buildings. Here are some key advantages:

Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency

Low-e glass helps improve the energy efficiency of your space by reducing heat transfer. It reflects a significant portion of the sun’s heat during hot seasons and retains interior warmth during the winter, resulting in reduced heating and cooling costs.

UV Protection

UV Protection

Low-e coatings block a significant amount of harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. This helps protect your furniture, flooring, and artwork from fading or damage caused by prolonged sun exposure. and preventing fading.

Improved Comfort

Improved Comfort

By minimizing heat transfer, Low-e glass helps maintain a more consistent indoor temperature. This ensures greater comfort for occupants by reducing temperature fluctuations near windows.

Natural Light

Natural Light

Low-e glass allows abundant natural light to enter your space while still blocking unwanted heat and UV radiation. This provides a well-lit and comfortable environment.

Condensation Control

Condensation Control

Low-e glass minimizes condensation on windows by maintaining a closer temperature to the room’s interior. This prevents moisture buildup that can lead to mold and mildew issues.

Sound Insulation

Sound Insulation

Some Low-e glass options can also provide sound insulation to reduce external noise and create a quieter interior environment.

FAQs

Do you manufacture Low-e glass or can you install it as well?

Yes, we’re a manufacturer of Low-e glass, and we also offer installation services. We proudly serve Chicago, Illinois, and Milwaukee, making sure that you receive high-quality Low-e glass products and professional installation for your projects.

What is a Low-e glass?

Low-e glass, short for “low emissivity” glass, is a type of glass that has been treated with a microscopically thin, transparent coating. This coating is designed to reduce the amount of heat transfer through the glass while allowing visible light to pass through. Low-e glass works by reflecting heat energy, specifically infrared radiation, back into the room, rather than allowing it to escape through the glass.

Here’s how it works:

  • Infrared Reflection: Low-e glass is engineered to reflect a significant portion of the long-wave infrared radiation (heat) that strikes it. This prevents heat from transferring from the warm interior of a building to the colder exterior during the winter months.
  • Visible Light Transmission: While Low-e coatings are effective at reflecting heat, they are designed to be highly transparent to visible light. This allows natural daylight to enter the building and provides occupants with clear views of the outside.
  • Ultraviolet (UV) Blockage: Many Low-e coatings also have the added benefit of blocking a portion of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. This helps protect furnishings, artwork, and interiors from fading and damage caused by UV exposure.

What are the types of Low-e glass?

Single Silver Low-e, Double Silver Low-e, and Triple Silver Low-e are different types of Low-e (low emissivity) glass coatings used to improve the energy efficiency of windows and glass surfaces. These coatings are applied to the glass during the manufacturing process and are designed to reduce the amount of heat transfer through the glass while still allowing visible light to pass through. Here’s a brief explanation of each:

  • Single Silver Low-E: This type of Low-e glass has a single layer of silver coating. It provides moderate energy efficiency by reflecting a portion of the heat back to its source while allowing visible light to pass through. It helps keep indoor spaces cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
  • Double Silver Low-E: Double Silver Low-e glass has two layers of silver coating. It offers higher energy efficiency than Single Silver Low-E by reflecting even more heat. It’s often used in climates with more extreme temperature variations.
  • Triple Silver Low-E: Triple Silver Low-e glass is the most energy-efficient option among the three. It has three layers of silver coating, providing excellent thermal insulation. It’s suitable for areas with extreme weather conditions, such as very hot summers or very cold winters.

These Low-e coatings are essential for improving the energy efficiency of windows and reducing heating and cooling costs in buildings. The choice between Single, Double, or Triple Silver Low-e depends on factors like climate, building design, and energy efficiency goals. Our team at Apex is always here to help!
