What is low-emissivity glass?
Low-emissivity glass (or low-e glass as it is commonly referred to) is a type of energy-efficient glass designed to prevent heat escaping out through your windows to the cold outdoors.
Unfortunately, many older double glazed units do not contain low-e glass and are therefore not as energy-efficient as they could be. By replacing your existing window glass with low-e glazing, you can improve the energy efficiency of your home, reduce your monthly bills and decrease the size of your carbon footprint.
FTCGLASS offers a range of single low-emissivity glass products and units.
Save money with low-e glazing
By installing low-e windows, you can significantly improve your Window Energy Ratings and reduce the amount of energy lost through your windows by up to 75%! Considering these figures and the cost of fuel today, it is easy to see why more and more people are opting for A+ rated windows by incorporating low-e glass into their existing window frames.
Low-e glass is essential for rooms or buildings with a high proportion of windows or glass doors, such as conservatories and sun rooms. The use of low-e glazing helps to retain heat even in winter, allowing you to comfortably use these rooms for more months of the year. Low-e glass is also recommended for north or east facing windows, where a larger proportion of heat loss would be expected.
