Insulated Glass Units (commonly called IG units) are simple. They consist of two pieces of flat glass separated by a sealed air space. This air space provides tremendous energy savings because it acts a barrier to heat and cold. Here are the advantages of insulated glass:
Insulated Glass Advantages are:
- Lower energy bills. In the winter, these windows reduce the heat loss. In the summer, they reduce the heat gain. This reduces the time your heating and cooling units have to run. And if they arenít running, you arenít running up your bill.
- Less condensation. Insulated Glass reduces the tendency of condensation to form on the room side of the glass.
- Tax Credits. Most Insulated Glass units qualify for federal income tax credits.
- Lower Sound. Insulated Glass units help soundproof your home by reducing the level of noise from the outside.
- Increases the Resale Value of Your Home. Buyers pay more for energy efficient homes.
At Glass Doctor, we understand energy efficient glass. We know itís important to look for either the U-value or the R-value of the insulated glass unit. We also understand the requirements for an ENERGY STAR label. Each window must have a certain U-value or R-value to receive the ENERGY STAR label. What do these U-values and R-values actually mean?
- The U-value is the difference between the indoor and outdoor temperatures. The lower the U-value, the less heat is transmitted through the glass.
- The R-value measures the overall resistance to heat transfer. The R-Value is the reciprocal of the U-Value. The higher the R-Value, the less heat is transmitted through the glass

Low E Glass
What is Low-E glass? Low-Emissivity glass (commonly called low-E glass) is a reflective type of glass that resists ultraviolet light which reduces glare, protects your furnishings against sunlight exposure and reduces cooling costs. Low-E glass is popular in both residential and office applications.
Here are some Low-E Glass advantages:
- More Sunlight. Less Heat. Low-E glass allows sunlight into a room without letting heat inside.
- Saves Money. Low-E windows reduce energy costs by helping to control the temperature in the house.
- Less Damage. Low-E glass prevents damaging sunlight exposure to carpets, draperies, sofas and other furnishings.
- Most importantly, low-E windows reduce energy costs by helping to control the climate in the house.
Please consider Low-E glass for your new windows. If you have questions, please call Glass Doctor of Michigan now and let us help you analyze what is best for you.
