Low-E glass is a specialized glass that is designed with the purpose of enabling the sun’s short wave energy to enter a space and prevent conditioned air from leaving. In the winter months, low-E glass allows heat that is generated internally to be reflected back into the space while reducing condensation on the glass. In the summer this process occurs in reverse, denying the heat that radiates from the exterior, significantly reducing the homeowner’s utility bills.
Trex decking is made of a unique combination of recycled plastic grocery bags and waste wood, making it maintenance free and environmentally friendly.
Along with the comfort of walking on warm floors, this system radiates heat from the floor resulting in evenly heated rooms and a reduction in energy consumption. As a result, the thermostat can be two-four degrees lower reducing energy costs by up to 40%.
This source of electricity is an investment that results in much lower electricity bills. With recent technological advancements, the photovoltaic system will pay for itself in as little as seven to 10 years.
