Learn how to identify windows and doors that will provide the best energy efficiency and savings for your home.
The ENERGY STAR program for windows divides the country into four distinct climate zones to recognize the varying heating and cooling months among the states. For patio doors, there is only one U-Factor and one Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) requirement for Energy Star compliance.
Please consult your home improvement or new construction professional for specific thermal properties that vary based on glass options and grid choices, and verify your window’s actual performance to ensure Energy Star rating in your specific climate zone.
