Most of the heat loss in windows and patio doors can be attributed to conduction through solid materials (e.g. thermo spacers, glass, door sashes and frames). Heat conducts from the warmer to the cooler side of the door. All our insulated glass units are made with warm-edge spacers that reduce conductivity by 75% when compared to conventional aluminum spacers, offering superior insulation performance.
Low-E stands for low-emissivity, a microscopically thin, spectrally selective coating applied to the glass surface in order to improve its thermal performance. The Low-E coating acts as a thermal blanket, and manages the suns solar energy all year long. In winter, as radiant heat tries to escape through the glass, it is reflected back inside the room. In summer, the unwanted heat trying to enter through the glass is reflected back to the exterior. Low-e glazing units can make your home more than twice as energy-efficient in comparison to older double glazing without no low-e coating.
When the space between the two panes of glass is filled with Argon gas, it acts as a thermal blanket and is considerably more effective at reflecting heat than regular air, therefore reducing heat transfer. Another property of Argon gas is its ability to filter out more of the damaging ultraviolet rays than regular air, preventing draperies and carpets from fading.
By replacing your existing windows and patio doors with our high efficiency products you can improve the energy efficiency of your home, reduce your monthly bills and decrease the size of your carbon footprint.
