ENERGY STAR Windows Meet Strict Standards for Conservation
Certain manufacturers partner with ENERGY STAR in making windows that meet very stringent standards for efficiency. First of all, the frames must be made of a material that offers a high level of consistent insulation. Fiberglass, vinyl, wood, and composite materials are all acceptable.
Multiple panes of low emissivity (low-e) glass are required. This glass helps keep the home warm on the inside in the winter while the opposite is true in the summer. Energy-efficient window replacement also may include gasses to fill the space between the panes to add extra insulation. These provide a higher level of insulation than air.
The National Fenestration Rating Council tests and certifies that ENERGY STAR windows comply with strict standards set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Consumers who choose these windows are guaranteed windows that maximize energy efficiency.
