What is the Difference Between Low E Glass & Double Glazing?

Understanding Low-E Glass vs. Double Glazing for Your Home

Greg and Sue discovered crucial differences between low emissivity (low-E) glass and double glazing through their consultation with Frys Energywise. Low-E glass, which has a coating that reduces heat transmission, offers improved performance over standard glass but can be challenging to maintain due to its coating. In contrast, double glazing consists of two layers of glass separated by an air gap, providing superior insulation and noise reduction. Additionally, when low-E film is applied to double glazed windows, it is placed on the inner surfaces, reducing the need for frequent cleaning. This makes double glazing an excellent choice for those seeking both temperature control and minimal maintenance. Before building or renovating, engaging with experts like Frys Energywise can help you choose the right glass options to enhance your home’s efficiency and comfort.
