Conservatories Etc: The Advantages of Low Emissivity Glass30/11/2017
Having been in the conservatory industry for over a decade now, we know first hand how important an investment they can be for a property. Due to the fact they are such big investments, you will want to be able to enjoy them all year round. In this blog we will be talking about Low-E glass, its advantages and why you should consider it for your conservatory or orangery.
What is Low Emissivity glass?
Low Emissivity glass (low-E glass) is a windowpane which is coated in energy-efficient microscopic layers of metallic oxides, designed to prevent heat loss. The coating is invisible to the naked eye, allowing the highest levels of natural light possible into your house. Low-E windows are commonly used in conservatories and orangeries and most modern properties feature them.
What are the benefits of Low-E glass?
Low-E glass has many benefits that you may not expect it to. Here are some of the biggest advantages of having Low Emissivity glass in your conservatory:
- Protects against UV rays – Low-E glass limits the amount of UV rays that come into your home. These UV rays can burn your skin, fade your carpets and damage furniture in your house.
- Improves window durability – Due to the surface of the glass being microscopically thin and transparent, it provides an enhanced layer of protection against micro-abrasive material such as dust and sand.
- Energy efficient – Low-E windows are energy efficient, saving you money in the long run and keeping your conservatory suitable for use all year round.
