Low-E Glass Installation in Birmingham

Energy-efficient windows are a great way to lower your heating and cooling costs. To help increase the energy efficiency of your doors and windows, you can upgrade any of The Window Source products with our Low-E/Argon, high-performance, insulated glass package.

What is Low-E Glass with Argon?

Low-E glass is coated with an imperceptible, harmless metallic layer that significantly enhances its ability to insulate by reflecting heat radiation. Its efficiency is maximized when encased in sealed, insulated glass infused with inert Argon gas. Integrating a Warm Edge spacer, a non-conductive element that divides the two glass panes, can augment this performance. A suitable Low-E coating ensures the window complies with EPA ENERGY STAR® standards for energy efficacy.

Does Low-E Glass Really Improve Window Performance?

Low-E coatings enhance the window’s effectiveness, leading to cost savings and consistent comfort all year round. Thanks to this coating, during winter months the warmth generated by your heating system bounces back inside. In the summer, it reflects the sun’s radiant heat outward, easing the workload on your air conditioning system. Unlike dark-tinted windows, Low-E glass permits nearly all light, ensuring your home receives plenty of natural light throughout the year.

How do I Choose the Right Low-E Coating for My Climate?

We’re here to help you in selecting the appropriate coating for your windows based on your geographical location. The ENERGY STAR® program, endorsed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, has made this task straightforward. It provides guidelines that specify the minimum performance required for each climate zone.

Simply choose an ENERGY STAR®-approved window that aligns with your specific climate zone requirements, and you can be confident that its Low-E coating is tailor-made for optimal performance in your locale.

In the process of picking new or replacement windows, it’s essential to insist on those that meet the ENERGY STAR® standards. At The Window Source of Birmingham, we assure you that all our windows are ENERGY STAR® certified when you opt for the Low-E upgrade available for our entire range of doors and windows. Investing in Low-E is a wise decision that justifies its cost through energy savings and ensures a cozy ambiance in your home. Besides energy efficiency, Low-E glass coating is instrumental in minimizing the fading of fabrics within your home that are often exposed to abundant natural light.
