ENERGY EFFICIENT FEATURE
Low-E (or low emissivity) glass are designed to limit the amount of infrared and ultraviolet light that can enter a space through the glass. This type of glass, however, does not limit the amount of visible light that passes through the glass.
Low-E glass provides homeowners with the best of both worlds. They can get the natural light that they want in their home, without sacrificing their level of comfort. Are you interested in Low-E Glass fro your windows? Then give us a call to inquire about our windows with Low-E Glass.
So how does Low-E Glass work? It’s pretty simple. This glass is made up of a very thin, transparent coating that is even smaller than a human hair. This coating can reflect the long-wave infrared energy that interacts with it.
When interior heat tries to escape your windows during the winter months, this coating reflects the heat back into your home, and it does the reverse during summer time. Low-E glass is the perfect solution for managing the temperature of your home.
As buildings account for a large portion of Canada's greenhouse gas emissions, it is important to make them as energy-efficient as possible. The Canada Greener Homes Grant helps Canadians afford the costs of making their homes more energy-efficient, thus reducing emissions and supporting environmental goals. The grant covers up to a maximum of $5,000 per household. Eligible costs include those related to energy-efficiency assessments, insulation, air sealing, ductwork, heating and cooling systems, windows, and doors. To receive the grant, Canadians must first complete an application which can be found on the Government of Canada website.
