In a recent post, we explained the benefits of using DIY low-emissivity coatings to insulate your current windows at the fraction of the cost of replacing them. But if you are designing a new sustainable building or home and have the opportunity to select your windows from the cutting edge options available today, these general guidelines will help you make logical decisions.

There is a true science behind low-e coatings that bares the necessity of mentioning that no two low-e coatings are created equal. However, this is not to say that some products are universally better than others, but that selecting the right window depends on the climate it is being installed in and orientation to the sun. In order to receive maximum energy efficiency, each window on a building should be analyzed independently and fitted with the appropriately insulated window.
