What Houzz contributors are saying:

Historically, Markham notes, glass has been one of the most difficult materials to make energy efficient. Regulations and advancements in technology mean windows are getting much better, though; new coatings can even reduce up to 99 percent of UV rays. “In the 1950s windows didn’t stop any of it,” he says. Why does this matter? UV rays can cause carpets, upholstery and artwork to fade over time. In his own office, Markham has two windows side by side. One has efficiency protection, the other one doesn’t. “And the carpet is a shockingly different color beneath each one,” he says. “Energy-efficient glass is the very best glass, and you’re doing yourself a favor by blocking the rays from damaging upholstery.”Efficient windows have another side effect: soundproofing. The thicker the glass, the more sound they’ll block. This is especially good in homes near a freeway or an airport.
