Q: What does it mean to be an Energy Star window?
A while back, the Environmental Protection Agency took a detailed look at how much energy was being wasted through inefficient buildings, appliances, and more. The result is a set of independent guidelines that help consumers identify energy-efficient products that reduce energy bills without sacrificing performance, features, and comfort. These guidelines are specific to the four different climate zones found throughout the US, and our Low-E windows will meet the specifications for your specific area.
Q: How can I compare different window options?
The dominant authority in the ratings of windows is an independent organization called the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC). While there may be a lot of sales hype out there, if a window does not have an NFRC label, then you simply can’t be certain of what you’re getting. At WinChoice USA®, all of our windows come with a proper NFRC label that certifies the entire window’s U-Factor and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient. As you evaluate these ratings, Energy Star requirements vary by region, and the lowest ratings are for the best performing windows.
