You should be able to enjoy full sunlight and views out your windows while saving money on utility bills and protecting your furnishings and finishes from sun damage. One of the early advancements in energy-efficient windows was Low-E, or low emissivity, which speaks to its ability to radiate low levels of radiant heat. Surpassing the efficiency of Low-E are the independently tested ENERGY STAR Low-E2 windows that we install in our homes today. Low-E2 windows incorporate a dual-pane, UV-resistant window system of protection that allows sunlight in but keeps heat and harmful UV rays out.
Advanced technologies such as invisible UV-resistant glass, improved framing materials, better weather stripping, and warm edge spaces all help to greatly reduce unwanted heat coming into or leaving your home.
Low-E2, ENERGY STAR-certified windows help keep homes warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. More than 70% of the sun’s heat is blocked from coming indoors during the summer, and your home’s interior heat is reflected back indoors during the winter.
Photographs, furniture, flooring and window treatments can easily fade or discolor after repeated exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays. Low-E2 windows can reduce fading of interior furniture, flooring, window coverings, and paint by up to 75%.
Advanced frames, glass coatings, spaces and other technologies enable your home’s windows to keep the inner surface of the glass and frame warmer, reducing the potential for interior condensation and water pooling on window sills that can cause mold or paint to crack.
