Glazing to control temperature
Window glazing options to control temperature in the home:
Double glazing (argon-filled, with low emissivity and UV-filter coatings). Heat absorbing (tinted) glass. Heat reflective (coated) glass. Low emissivity glass (transmits the short-wave radiation of visible light but reduces the rate of longwave radiation transmission).
Window design to allow airflow through the house.
Double glazing can be fitted throughout the house or just in the living areas where people spend the most time.
