As electricity prices are on the rise just in time for winter, an energy-efficient home is a comfortable home, as it is easier to heat. Making sure your home is energy efficient will improve comfort and save money on utilities.
A home can be better insulated by using low emissivity glass. So, what is low emissivity (Low-e) glass? Low-e is standard clear glass with a special coating on one glass surface. Low-e refers to low emissivity, which describes a character’s capacity to radiate heat. Emissivity is measured across a scale from 0 to 1, with 1 representing the highest emissivity.
The Low-E coating is spectrally selective, affecting some wavelengths of light but not others. Longwave infrared is the heat produced by our bodies, heaters and the furnishings in a warm room. The transmission of long-wave infrared is significantly reduced by the Low-E coating. It reflects the amount of energy escaping through the glass, keeping the room warmer and reducing the amount of heat generated by the artificial heaters. The energy from the sun is called short wave infrared; a high proportion of energy from the sun will be transmitted straight through the glass. Low-e coatings provide various performance levels, and the glass can be used in multiple ways, including single glazing, laminated glass or double glazed windows.
