Make the Smart Environmental Choice with ENERGY STAR®
Choosing a window can be challenging – there are a wide range of styles, brands, and options to choose from, and your final decision must match the atmosphere and ambiance of your home.
ENERGY STAR® makes it easy to narrow down the choices related to keeping your home comfortable.
By choosing an ENERGY STAR qualified window, you won’t have to research the impact of all your window choices on your heating and cooling bills.
The ENERGY STAR criteria has optimized the choices for different climate patterns in the U.S. and Canada.
