Low-E glass helps keep your home comfortable year-round.

Comfort Engineering is the process of finding the best glass options for each window in your home. By choosing the correct Low-E coating and dual- or triple-pane glazing option, you can regulate the temperature in your home while reducing your heating and cooling costs.

The important thing to understand about Comfort Engineering is that not all windows require the same treatments. If a south-facing window is generating too much heat in your home, you may want to use a Low-E coating that repels heat. On the other hand, a Low-E treatment that generates heat may be your preference for an east-facing bedroom window so the room stays warm in the morning.

There are many ways to customize the temperature of your home using Comfort Engineering. Your best bet is to talk to your local window dealer about glazing options when replacing your windows. They will be able to provide you with the information you need to get the correct glazing treatments.
