Infographic: What is a Low-E Coating?
How are Low-E coatings able to reduce energy costs by as much as 12-27%? The answer can be fairly complex, but harnessing a basic understanding of the technical details can impact a window’s performance to create a more desired outcome. There are different types of coatings, and each one has a different effect on which part of the solar spectrum it allows to pass through. This month’s infographic discusses the science behind the microscopic coating, and a few of the characteristics that impact a building’s performance.
