For the great cost savings, plus superb energy efficiency, consider Low-E Glass with Argon when replacing windows and doors in your home. Year after year, your new windows with Low-E glass will offer outstanding performance that really makes a difference and saves money.
How Will Low-E Glass Improve Window Performance?
You might have heard of Low-E Glass, but do you know how it works? It’s pretty straightforward — our double and triple pane Low-E Glass Windows are constructed with three distinct components, each working together to ensure our windows meet EPA Energy Star Guidelines:
- First, our Low-E Glass comes with a non-toxic and non-visible coating that’s applied to the surface of each individual pane. The coating dramatically increases the window’s thermal performance by reflecting radiant heat.
- Next, our windows are permanently sealed with inert Argon gas in between the panes whether double or triple panes. Argon gas provides excellent insulation because it is far denser than air.
- Finally, our warm-edge spacer technology stabilizes the unit and further reduces any heat transfer or thermal conduction between the window panes.
Energy Costs Are Lowered When Using Low-E Glass
At The Window Source of Eastern NC, our Low-E Glass installation provides big improvements in energy efficiency. Our customers save money when using Low-E Glass Windows that keep their homes comfortable during any season — even in the extreme hot and humid temperatures of Eastern North Carolina.
In summer, when the Greenville area can experience soaring temperatures, the heat from the sun is reflected back into the atmosphere allowing your cooling system to efficiently do its job. And in winter, when the thermometer drops, radiant heat produced by your heating system is reflected back into the interior of your home where it can continue to provide cozy comfort for you and your family.
How Do I Know That Low-E Coating is Right for my Climate?
The EPA program sets minimum performance criteria for each climate zone in the U.S., so you can rest assured that your Low-E Glass Windows from The Window Source are optimized for the Greensville, Wilmington, and Crystal Coast areas.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star Program has minimum performance criteria based on their recommended level of Low-E Glass coating for each climate zone throughout the U.S.
We guarantee that our windows are Energy Star certified and when you select our Low-E Glass upgrade on any of our windows and patio doors, you will recoup energy costs. Another plus — you never have to replace faded fabrics inside your home. Our Low-E Glass Installation projects pay for themselves in a couple of years
