The low-E glass was designed to minimize the amount of infrared and ultraviolet light that comes from the sun and enters through your glass, without losing the amount of light that enters your home. Low-e glass has a microscopically thin, transparent coating of tiny metal oxide layers that drastically reduces energy transfer and reflects the internal energy back into your room. It can be cold or heat energy. You can experience a consistent indoor temperature, which will provide you with enhanced visual and thermal comfort.

Low-E Glass Diagram

There are 2-Two Types of Low-E Coatings.
Passive Low-E Coatings (Which is Hard-Coat).
Solar Control Low-E Coatings (which is Soft-Coat).

Which is Best ?

Passive Low-E coatings are Good for cold locations where the temperature is always (-) minus degrees.

Solar Control Low-E Coating is Good for tropical or where temperature changes according to climate.

Low-E Glass Advantages and Disadvantages

Advantages: Make your home more energy-efficient, Protect it from UV Rays, Reduce Internal Room Energy Transfer through Door Window Glass.

Disadvantages: You can have a slightly darker feel because of the layer in glass. Plus Low-E Coating Glass is expensive.
