If you are looking to improve your home’s energy efficiency, new window panes and insulated frames are fantastic options. However, there are other features you can choose to boost efficiency further and keep your home’s interior temperature more comfortable than ever: low-E window coatings. Five Star Improvements can install windows that combine these features for the ultimate energy-efficient windows for your home in Rochester, New York, or the surrounding areas. Learn more about how these windows work.

What Are Low-E Windows?

Low-emittance (low-E) windows use a microscopic metal coating on the glass to control the rate of heat transfer into and out of the home. Low-E coatings work in tandem with energy-efficient window panes and window insulation to improve thermal performance in your house and possibly lower your energy bills.

Low-E Windows Keep Your Home Comfortable

Five Star Improvements wants to help you maximize your home’s comfort when you choose to have new windows installed, and low-E can help. The function of low-E coatings is simple: the small metallic particles in the coating reflect the interior temperature of your home to maintain a stable environment. When heat tries to escape your home in the winter, a low-E window will reflect it back in, keeping your home’s interior temperature warm. This works vice-versa—in the summer, the coating mitigates excess heat from warming your house and blocks UV rays from fading your furniture (while still letting the sun brighten up your home’s interior).

There are two types of low-E window coatings:

  • High-solar gain. These let more heat in. High-solar gain is generally used for windows that don’t face the sun or in areas with extreme winters.
  • Low-solar gain. These are common in warmer climates and for windows that receive a lot of sunlight. They reflect the sun’s heat better than high-solar gain coatings.

The experts at Five Star Improvements can help determine which low-E coatings are best for you based on the window’s location and your climate.
