Low-E Glass Benefits

If you need to buy new windows for your home or commercial building in the Maryland, Washington, DC and Virginia area, you want to consider all your options. Finding the right windows is no small feat – it can be difficult to find windows that are energy efficient, complement the style of your home or building, match your stylistic preferences, etc.

If you haven’t considered buying coated glass windows, you may want to think about it! Coated glass windows are windows with special coating that can block harmful UV rays from the sun.

What Are the Benefits of Coated Glass Windows?

In addition to the ultraviolet radiation reduction, coated glass offers several other benefits, including:

  • Higher levels of comfort – low-e glass coatings reduce radiant heat
  • Potential savings on your energy bills – low-e glass coatings reduces reliance on heating and cooling systems
  • Furniture and floor protection – protect furniture and carpet from long-term sun damage with low-e glass.
  • Appearance – many window manufacturers offer decorative coated glass for your windows!
