In The Central West we have a great climate for at least six months of the year. So in autumn and spring we don’t need to be too con- cerned with temperature extremes. On the other hand, our sum- mers can get very warm and our winters rather cold. Experience has shown the experts at the Glassplace that Low E grey tinted glass performs well in both summer and winter.
How does Low E tinted glass work? (Other names are smart glass, pyrolytic glass, or comfort glass.) Low E grey glass cuts down the U value of a window or door. This is the amount of heat moving through the glass due to the difference in temperature: from the inside to the outside of your home, or office. Low E glass can therefore reduce your heating bill and your cooling costs.
Low E grey glass also reduces the total solar radiation com- ing through the glass. This is the Solar Heat Gain Co-efficient or SHGC. It also reduces glare to make your home more comfortable in summer. The lower the numbers, the more benefit you will get from Low E glass.
