Understanding Energy Efficiency

What is ENERGY STAR?

ENERGY STAR® is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices. Windows and doors that have earned the ENERGY STAR offer excellent energy efficiency and year-round comfort with reduced heating and cooling costs.

AirLite Windows® windows and doors are engineered with energy efficiency and quality in mind. AirLite Windows is proud to be an ENERGY STAR partner, offering energy efficient windows and doors that help save on heating and cooling costs and create a comfortable home year-round. Our energy efficient features such as dual-pane insulated glass, optional LowE glass options and carefully engineered glass spacers make saving energy and money nearly effortless.

Many AirLite Windows windows and doors meet the strict ENERGY STAR guidelines when ordered with appropriate energy efficient options.

Why do you want ENERGY STAR qualified windows and doors?

Did you know that ENERGY STAR qualified windows and doors can reduce energy bills up to 15% while helping protect the environment? Replacing old, drafty windows with ENERGY STAR qualified AirLite Windows windows and doors can help:

  • Reduce your heating and cooling bills
  • Make your home more comfortable year-round
  • Reduce the use of natural resources

What makes a window or door ENERGY STAR qualified?

ENERGY STAR qualified windows and doors:

  • Are manufactured by an ENERGY STAR partner, like AirLite Windows
  • Are independently tested and certified by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC)
  • Have NFRC ratings that meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Energy

How do you tell if a product is ENERGY STAR qualified?

Look for the label. All ENERGY STAR qualified products must display the ENERGY STAR information on their product performance label. Some products are ENERGY STAR qualified in some regions of the country and not others with certain options. Check the performance label to make sure the products and options you are considering qualify in your area.
