The best relief for your home from hot summer temperatures is of course, shade-providing trees and plants. But, as these often take years to mature, they can’t provide an immediate cooling solution. Meanwhile, even homes with ample natural shade still need relief from the heat.

Thankfully, long term relief from the heat is available to you right now by way of Low-E glass—an energy efficient, low emissivity glass window that provide the best protection available against solar heat gain in your home.

Low-E glass windows (such as Milgard SunCoat and Cardinal 366) are designed to reject the sun’s heat and block harmful UV rays. These windows protect your home’s fabrics and furnishing against fading, reduce your energy bills, qualify you for energy tax credits, and provide insulation all year round—so that you’re comfortable and cozy whatever the season.
