WHAT IS SUNCOAT™ LOW-E?

SunCoat Low-E is a clear, low-emissivity coating applied to one side of the glass in Milgard's dual-pane windows. This microscopically thin coating filters the sun's energy in the summer and reduces heat loss in the winter, making even energy bills look better. Low-E has been a product usually recommended for cold climates. Now with Milgard's introduction of SunCoat Low-E glass, you can use this product everywhere, from the heat of Southern Nevada desert to the cold of Chicago and Alaska winters.

You can get even greater thermal performance with the addition of argon gas to Milgard's standard, dual-pane, SunCoat Low-E insulating glass. In fact, Milgard's vinyl and fiberglass insulated windows have even been recognized by Energy Star® for their exceptional energy-saving qualities in your home.

ENERGY SAVINGS

Windows can account for up to 30% of the annual energy consumed in a home. In the summer, Milgard's SunCoat Low-E keeps your home cool and comfortable by rejecting the sun's heat and damaging rays. In the winter, SunCoat Low-E helps your home stay warm and cozy by blocking heat loss to the cold weather outside.
