What Makes Ply Gem’s Low-E Replacement Windows Energy Efficient?
Low-E is short for low emissivity. This glass has a thin metallic dual layer coating. This coating reflects radiant or infrared energy, thus tending to keep radiant heat on the outside of the glass where it originated, while letting visible light pass through. This results in more efficient windows because radiant heat originating from indoors in winter is reflected back inside, while infrared heat from the sun during summer is reflected away, keeping it cooler inside. Ply Gem replacement windows with low-E glass help keep your home warmer in the winter by trapping radiant heat, and cooler in the summer by blocking it from your home.
