Home Living : February 28th 2012
MB HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, February 28, 2012 3 INSULATION THE LIGHT BRIGADE Glare can detract from a room. WHAT to consider: Let the light in -- Glare from natural light can detract and make a room uncomfortable. UV in natural light can dis- colour fabrics, floors and furni- ture. Cool in summer -- Low-E glass reduces the amount of natural daylight entering your home. A thin metallic coating on the glass deflects much of the solar energy striking its sur- face, reducing heat transfer though the glass and away from your home's interior. Warm in winter -- Double glazing works by introducing a second layer of glass to create a static air gap and transparent insulating barrier. It also keeps the inner pane of glass closer to room temperature. WINDOWS ROOM WITH A VIEW ENERGY-EFFICIENT GLASS THE NEW TREND Windows play a critical role in your home's comfort and energy consumption. THERE is much more to win- dows than you think. More than any other feature, windows set the mood of your home, provid- ing views, ventilation, daylight and a sense of spaciousness. They also play a critical role in your home's comfort and energy consumption. Central heating and aircon- ditioning make a home more comfortable but use energy, cost money and create greenhouse gases. The installation of energy-efficient glass for win- dows is a new trend in home building. Energy-efficient windows cre- ate a more comfortable, light- filled and secure home, as well as helping reduce your house- hold's energy consumption. Less artificial heating and cooling also means a more re- warding and healthier place to live. Greater energy efficiency also allows you to have larger windows, maximizing views and natural light. You can also combine energy- efficient glass with windows that reduce noise, the need for cleaning, provide protection from intruders and create shel- ter from extreme weather.
