LoE Coatings that exist in our marketplace
Are you aware of the different types of LoE Coatings that exist in our marketplace? If you're not, be careful. When a window company sells you Windows with LoE, make sure you ask them what type of LoE.
Our Window expert Anton Van Dyk breaks down the key differences when specific coatings are paired with glass. The video measures the amount of infrared heat flowing through the glass. When you’re considering windows with LoE, be very cautious that you’re not purchasing windows with the 180 coating. With this coating, your home may overheat in the summer or may not be an improvement from the existing windows you had.This thermal timelapse illustrates why it is integral to know the differences before making your window investment.
LoE coatings are a microscopic coating of silver that is applied to the inside surface of glass that reflects heat back to its source. Its primary focus is how it retains the heat within in your home, reducing your heating costs. But it also works to reflect heat back from the sun, reducing your cooling costs in the summer. This investment will also reduce condensation on those colder days, which will help with maintenance and cleaning costs. This saves on avoidable utility expenses while generating a more comfortable living environment. To learn more, visit our breakdown of the various types of coatings.
