Energy Efficient Glazing



Consumption is at an all time high which means that any means of conservation is welcomed if it provides a way to improve efficiency. When it comes to glass (especially for windows in modern homes) energy efficient glazing is important.

“Energy-efficient glazing is the term used to describe the double glazing or triple glazing use in modern windows in homes. Unlike the original single glazing or old double glazing, energy-efficent glazing incorporates coated (low-emissivity) glass to prevent heat escaping through the windows. This makes the windows highly thermally insulating hence improving the energy efficiency of your home and helping to save money on your heating bills. Low-emissivity glass (or low-e glass as it is commonly referred to) is a type of energy-efficient glass designed to prevent heat escaping through your windows to the cold outdoors. Unfortunately, many older double glazed units do not contain low-emissivity glass and are therefore not energy-efficient. By replacing your existing window glass with low-e glazing, you can improve the energy efficiency of your home, reduce your monthly bills and decrease the size of your carbon footprint.”

Regardless of the type of glass you use for your windows or otherwise, having it professionally installed will ensure that it is secure and able to provide the proper function it was meant for. Let Cornwall Glass provide the expert service for all of your glass product needs!
