What does loE3 glass do for you?

You’ve heard that VELUX skylights are built using energy efficient LoE3 and Argon gas injected dual glass panes, but what does that mean for you?

What is LoE3 glass?
·       LoE is a microscopically thin, virtually invisible, metal or metallic oxide layer deposited on a skylight glazing surface to reduce the skylight U-factor by suppressing radiative heat flow through the skylight.  
·       LoE3 stands for low-emission cubed. It is currently the lowest emission glass available.

What does LoE3 glass do for you?
·       It helps reduce the amount the ultraviolet (UV) light and radiation.
·       Protects walls and furnishings from sun damage and fading.
·       Keeps warm air out in the summer and cool air out in the winter
·       Saves you money: properly installed loE glass can reduce your overall energy bills by up to one third.

Why are VELUX Skylights filled with Argon?
·  Argon is an inert gas and is a better insulator than air. By sealing it between two panes of glass, you have less transmitted heat/cold into your living space.

Is a glass skylight better than an acrylic (plastic) skylight? 
· VELUX glass skylights are superior to plastic in every respect. It is more energy efficient and more durable. Glass skylights reduce external noises, won’t discolor, or leak or allow drafts. 

Replace your old acrylic or glass skylight with an energy efficient VELUX Skylight:
·       Save money on your electric bill
·       Protect your home’s interior
