Low-emissivity (low-E) coatings are microscopically thin metal layers that are deposited on a window surface to help keep heat on the same side of the glass from which it originated. Depending on the climate, and whether it's for commercial, residential or automotive use, Guardian has developed a number of different coatings to achieve specific results. The goal is to find the proper balance between capturing and reflecting solar heat.
Windows that have good insulating values will make your home more comfortable, particularly in winter. This is partly because they allow less heat to pass through, but there's another reason - the inside surface of a better insulated window will be warmer. When you stand or sit by it, your body won't lose as much heat to the window as it would to a colder surface. Sometimes the draftiness that people feel from windows isn't due to air movement at all, but rather to the fact that we radiate body heat to the cold window surface.
