LOW E WINDOWS FOR IMPRESSIVE ENERGY EFFICIENCY
OPTION – LOW E WINDOWS
Low E (Low Emissivity) is the term used to describe the amount energy that transfers through materials. When referring to energy transfer through windows, the IR (infrared) and UV (ultraviolet) light or energy that allows heat transfer and fabrics and objects to fade is minimized and the visible light spectrum is maximized. In windows, a low e coating is applied to flat glass during a special manufacturing process. At Ringer Windows, we offer 3 different types of Low E windows, all specifically suited for Texas.
Low E glass contains two to three layers of silver nitrate (depending on which type is used) that are molecularly bonded to the glass. Low E glass is slightly darker than clear glass, but not by much. The Low E coating is micro-thin, never peels, and is nearly invisible. Its powerful component drives efficiency in all our replacement windows and new construction windows.
IN SUMMER, IT’S WHAT KEEPS THE HEAT OUT DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS AND INSIDE DURING THE WINTER.
THE “INS AND OUTS” OF LOW E WINDOWS
Sunlight is primarily composed of 3 components, Ultraviolet Rays (UV), Infrared Rays (IR), and the Visible Spectrum of light. The visible spectrum of light is desirable and harmless. The ultraviolet spectrum causes fading and discoloration to interior furnishings and paint. The infrared spectrum is what heats-up interior surfaces, flooring, and fabrics, causing your home’s interior temperature to rise. Infrared is the “hot” component that we aim to keep out!
The superior low E glass in Ringer Windows blocks most of the harmful UV and infrared spectrums while allowing most of the good visible (desirable) light to pass. We’ve dubbed this glass, “spectrally smart” because it stops most of the bad stuff and allows just the good stuff to pass!
