Are you looking to make your home more energy efficient this year? If so, assessing the window glazing in your home can be a game changer for your monthly energy bills. Read on to learn more about window glazing and how our team at Exterior Remodel and Design can help you find the best option for your home.
What is window glazing?
The term window glazing refers to the glass that is used within the window itself. The number of layers of glazing doesn’t necessarily result in greater efficiency. Different glazing coatings can impact a window’s U-Factor. The U-Factor measures the rate of heat transfer and tells you how well the window insulates. The lower the U-Factor is, the better the window insulates.
Is window glazing expensive?
When it comes to cost, it depends on a few different factors. The overall price will take into account how many windows your home has and what kind of glazing you are replacing.
Are there different kinds of window glazing?
At Exterior Remodel and Design, we offer a wide variety of window glazing options. Our options include heat-absorbing glazing, reflective coatings, spectrally selective coating, insulated glazing and low-e glass.
What is Low-E?
Low-E stands for low emissivity. It refers to the window’s ability to reflect rather than absorb heat when coated with a thin metallic substance. This coating can be added to certain window glazing options to improve overall thermal performance.
When it comes to ensuring your windows will keep your home as energy efficient as possible, trust the installation process to professionals. Exterior Remodel & Design is a trusted name in both Lincoln and Omaha when it comes to the installation of new and replacement windows.

Not all homes are constructed the same way, so there is no one type of glazing or frame that is right for every insulation.
