Why we recommend Low E Glass?
Most windows are about 80% glass, so you’ll want to carefully select your glass system to ensure maximum energy savings. High performance Low E glass package combines multilayered, low-emissivity (Low E) glass, argon gas, and the PPG Intercept Warm-Edge Spacer system for increased energy efficiency compared to a standard clear glass unit. Low-E also minimizes damaging UV rays that cause interior furnishings and carpets to fade.
Save Energy with Window Replacement
The Low E Glass ClimaTech Elite glass packages have proven to be far more effective than ordinary clear glass units. The lower the U-Factor, the less energy you’ll need to heat your home. The lower the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC), the more you’ll conserve on air-conditioning during the hot Tucson summer months.
The ClimaTech Elite Windows we install have almost three times the U-Factor and half the SHGC Heat Gain as typical single pane windows offering energy savings and cooler summers and warmer winters.
