For the best energy efficiency, plus significant cost savings, consider our Low-E Glass with Argon when replacing your existing windows and patio doors. Low-E replacement windows offer world-class performance that makes a substantial difference and saves money over a lifetime.
Does Low-E Glass Really Improve Window Performance?
Maybe you’ve heard of Low-E Glass or Argon gas filled windows, but how do these replacement windows work? We offer both double and triple pane Low-E replacement windows that are constructed with three very distinct components. These specific components work together to ensure our Low-E replacement windows meet EPA Energy Star Guidelines:
- Low-E Glass has a non-visible and non-toxic coating applied to the surface of each individual windowpane which reflects radiant heat, thereby dramatically increasing the window’s thermal performance.
- Our double and triple paned windows feature Low-E Glass and are sealed with inert Argon gas in between the panes. Being much denser than air, Argon gas provides excellent insulation.
- Our windows are constructed using warm-edge spacer technology in between the windowpanes. This stabilizes the unit and reduces any heat transfer or thermal conduction.
Are Energy Costs Lowered by Using Low-E Glass?
Absolutely! At The Window Source of NOLA, our Low-E Glass replacement windows provide a substantial cost savings in energy efficiency. Our customers report that their new Low-E replacement windows save money and keep their homes extremely comfortable all year long — even in the sometimes extreme of Southern Louisiana.
In summer, when the New Orleans area experiences soaring temperatures and humidity, the heat from the sun is reflected back into the atmosphere allowing your cooling system to do its job efficiently. And in cooler months, the radiant interior heat is reflected back into your home where it provides a cozy comfortable environment.

Energy Miser glass options keep you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
Is Low-E Coating Right for Our New Orleans Climate?
You never have to worry about choosing the right glass for our unique climate zone. The United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Energy Star Program has minimum Low-E Glass performance-based criteria set for each climate zone throughout the U.S.
When you select a Low-E Glass upgrade on any of our replacement windows and sliding patio doors, we guarantee that your windows will be Energy Star certified. Our Low-E Glass installation projects pay for themselves through recouped energy costs. And, as with all of our products, The Window Source of NOLA offers a Limited Lifetime Warranty on all our windows, sliding patio doors, and entry doors.
