Save energy and increase comfort with Saint-Gobain energy efficient glass
Energy efficiency glass may be defined as using less energy to satisfy our current needs. In other words it means using energy more efficiently to be able to keep the same level of comfort while consuming less energy.
Improving the thermal performance of a window or of the building envelope delivers the greatest long-lasting final energy savings and enables all technologies to deliver their full benefits.
A staggering 26% of all domestic heat loss escapes through the windows or facades. Installing energy efficient glass helps you save money on heating bills when compared to standard double glazed windows and frames.
How does it work?
Energy saving glass solutions use an advanced metallic coating that reflects heat from radiators or fires back into the room, rather than allowing it to escape through the windows. In addition, it allows free heat and light energy from the sun to pass through the glass, warming your home and further contributing to the energy efficiency of your windows. That means lower energy bills compared to standard windows.
While people spend 90% of their time indoors, it is important to create comfortable places. An energy efficient building means:
Improving indoor comfort
Saving money on energy bills
Breathing healthy, fresh and clean air
Reducing moisture issues (mold, leaks, condensation)
Having an energy efficient glass building thanks to your glazing it also means more natural light and less artificial light, which is better for your health, better for your eyesight, and can even reduce stress.
