The focus of modern technology has been to make things more energy efficient, so that it saves you money in energy bills, and it’s better for the environment. It turns out that traditional windows typically only had one sheet of glass between the inside of your home and the outdoors.
Smart engineers figured out that by using more than one sheet of glass, and putting a layer of air or gas in between the sheets, made the window a much better insulator. That’s where double-pane and triple-pane windows get their name from. You can choose between two or three layers of glass.
These windows are much better at keeping energy from getting through the window. That means it helps you save money in summer and in winter by limiting energy transfer through the window.
Another technique for blocking heat energy from getting through the window is to use a very thin layer of metal on the glass to reflect that energy back to where it came from.
Don’t worry though, the layer is so thin that you can’t see it with your eyes. However, it is enough to make a significant difference in the energy efficiency of the window.
You can even choose between one, two, or three layers of metal for additional performance. This technology is great at keeping heat outside in summer, and heat inside during winter. That’s how it saves you money.
