Efficient Windows Collaborative

Benefits: Increased Light & View

Daylight and view are two of the fundamental attributes of a window. Unfortunately, windows can also be the source of significant solar heat gain during times when it is unwanted. Traditional solutions to reducing solar heat gain such as tinted glazing or shades mean that the amount of light is reduced as well. New glazings with low-solar-gain Low-E (spectrally selective) coatings can provide better solar heat gain reduction than tinted glass, with a minimal loss of visible light. This also means that views can be clearer and unobstructed.
