Low-emissivity Glass

What is low-emissivity glass?

Low-emissivity glass (or low-e glass as it is commonly referred to) is a type of energy-efficient glass designed to prevent heat escaping out through your windows to the cold outdoors.

Unfortunately, many older double glazed units do not contain low-e glass and are therefore not as energy-efficient as they could be. By replacing your existing window glass with low-e glazing, you can improve the energy efficiency of your home, reduce your monthly bills and decrease the size of your carbon footprint.

Save money with low-e glazing

By installing low-e windows, you can significantly improve your Window Energy Ratings and reduce the amount of energy lost through your windows by up to 75%!  Considering these figures and the cost of fuel today, it is easy to see why more and more people are opting for A+ rated windows by incorporating low-e glass into their existing window frames.
