  • Low Emissivity Windows

    ENERGY STAR® qualified windows not only can save you money, but also help improve your comfort, cut drafts and reduce fading of interior furnishings.

What is Low Emissivity?

Thanks to advances in technology, today’s ENERGY STAR® qualified windows, doors, and skylights offer greater savings than ever before with such products as low emissivity (low-E) glass.

Low-E glass is made with a metallic coating on the inside of the insulating glass unit. This lowers the window’s ability to transfer heat and saves energy without compromising visibility.

The low-E coating also reduces fading by up to 75% by reflecting the long-wave light rays that carry heat and UV.

What is your average monthly heating/cooling bill?

Estimates vary from region to region, but ENERGY STAR® qualified windows can help reduce your energy bills by as much as 15%. The greatest savings tend to come from the areas with hot summers, cold winters or both.
