What is a U-value?

Ultimately it shows its insulating ability. A U-value indicates the rate of heat loss of the window. It calculates air infiltration and water infiltration If the U-value is low, the greater a window’s resistance to heat flow and the better its insulating value.

What does R-value mean?

An R-value shows the resistance to heat flow at areas within the window. A high R-value will lose less heated (or cooled) air. This in turn will help with your energy bills. Dual pane windows are measured in U-Value which is the reciprocal of an R-value. 

What is Low-E glass?

Low-E (low-emissivity) treated glass is made up of millions of tiny metallic flakes that bounce the heat back to the heat source, while still allowing the light to pass through the glass.
