Understanding Low-E Coatings
The Benefits of Specifying Low-E Coatings discusses the benefits of specifying high performance architectural glass to improve the energy efficiency of buildings while reducing their operating costs and carbon emissions. The course will help learners differentiate between passive and solar control low-e coatings and different glass performance measure. Finally, the course will analyze how low-e coatings can improve energy efficiency and help the project earn LEED® credit contributions.
