Keeping Solar Heat Outside Minimizes Air Conditioning Expense.
As the seasons change, so do the criteria for comfort. With the arrival of summer or in predominately warmer climates, the focus on energy efficiency changes from heating to cooling–keeping the cool air in and the heat of the sun out. Due to the high trajectory of the summer sun, most solar energy is reflected off objects, such as trees, overhangs or the ground, prior to striking the windows of your home. This redirected or long-wave radiation is selectively rejected by the Performance Plus coatings. This translates into lower air conditioning bills and a more comfortable living environment. The Performance Plus family of Low-E products is also on guard protecting your furniture, carpets and other fabrics. By rejecting nearly all the damaging ultra-violet rays from the sun, Low-E glass keeps your furnishings looking like new, while allowing plant life to flourish.
