Why You Should Choose Low-E Coated Replacement Windows for Your Home
The low-E coated replacement window, which is also known as the low emissivity glass window, are coated with a thin, transparent layer which is made up of metallic oxides. These windows are all the rage due to the many benefits that they offer homeowners. The main benefit of low-E coated replacement windows is that they keep heat in during the long Wisconsin Winters and keep heat out during the hot and humid Wisconsin Summers.
One of the most attractive benefits of installing a low E-Coated replacement window is its energy efficiency. During the cold winter months, a regular window will absorb heat from the sun during the day. This heat warms up the home, but as soon as the sun goes down, the heat is let out, and the house becomes cold again. With low-E windows, heat will stay in your home all day long.
More recently, manufacturers have developed windows that keep homes cooler in hot weather. During the summer months, low-E coated replacement windows reflect the sun without blocking the light and keep the cold air inside your home. Installing these replacement windows can help lower your utility bills by keeping your home cooler in the summer and warmer during the winter.
Protection from UV Rays
UV Rays can eventually discolor furniture, blinds, and rugs that are near windows. Since Low-E windows have UV Ray protection properties, installing them can protect your furnishings from fading and discoloring and will keep your possessions looking their best for a more extended period.
