In The Central West we have a great climate for at least six months of the year.
So in autumn and spring we don’t need to be too concerned with temperature extremes.
On the other hand, our summers can get very warm and our winters rather cold.
Experience has shown the experts at the Glassplace that Low E grey tinted glass performs well in both summer and winter.
How does Low E tinted glass work? (Other names are smart glass, pyrolytic glass, or comfort glass.)
Low E grey glass cuts down the U value of a window or door. This is the amount of heat moving through the glass due to the difference in temperature: from the inside to the outside of your home, or office. Low E glass can therefore reduce your heating bill and your cooling costs.
Low E grey glass also reduces the total solar radiation coming through the glass. This is the Solar Heat Gain Co-efficient or SHGC. It also reduces glare to make your home more comfortable in summer.
The lower the numbers, the more benefit you will get from Low E glass.
If you still feel a bit confused about this glass, but want to know more, why not drop into the new Glassplace showroom in Clarke Street, Parkes. They will show you examples of Low E Glass in full sized windows so you can see what it looks like.
You can also have a go at their radiant
heat display to actually feel the difference Low E glass can make in your home.
