Energy Saving Glass Options

Saving energy... Saving you dollars!

 

Adding Low-E Coating and Argon Gas to your unit will lower the energy transfer which means a lower energy bill. This can be compared to adding another layer of insulation to your wall.

 
Low-E Coating

Low-E is a thin, non visible, coating that is applied to glass. It locks the passage of heat energy keeping your rooms warmer in the winter, and cooler in the summer. 

 
Argon Gas

Argon is an odourless, clear, non-toxic gas that is sandwiched between panes of glass to serve as a barrier. It reduces the energy that is transferred between/through the panes of glass.

 

 

Glass Options

 
Dual Pane or Triple Pane?

Triple pane offers higher resistance to condensation.

 
R-Value

Measures the efficiency in which a glass unit retains heat.
The higher the value the more efficient the window.
