Low-E Coating on Large-Format South-Facing Window
Curious what the GBA hive mind thinks about this particular arrangement:
I am installing a custom picture window (large 6’x5′) on a south facing facade in central VT. The building is insulated but only R20, the building is single story 450 sq. ft., and the only source of heat is our wood-stove and possible passive solar. We have overhangs on this south facade which create some shade in the summer months but not much.
The Glass will be double pane ( would love to do triple but cannot justify the cost) and the question is: should I get Low E coating, and on what surface that coating should be on should I get it?
