To make home improvement purchase decisions easier, look for the ENERGY STARⓇ label when shopping for new or replacement windows and doors. ENERGY STAR-certified products meet strict energy-efficient criteria to benefit your family, home and the environment. Here are three significant benefits of investing in ENERGY STAR-certified products:
1. Energy Savings
ENERGY STAR-certified windows and doors can reduce your energy bill, saving you money. Less energy consumption also means fewer greenhouse gas emissions, reducing your family’s carbon footprint. For maximum energy savings, invest in an insulated glass package for your ENERGY STAR-certified windows.
2. Increased Home Comfort
ENERGY STAR high-performance windows and doors help maintain a consistent indoor temperature year-round. These energy-efficient windows and doors can make your home feel warmer in winter and cooler in summer to increase your at-home comfort.
3. UV Protection
Most ENERGY STAR-certified windows and doors have a low-emissivity (Low-E) glass coating, which reflects harmful UV rays without restricting light. The Low-E coating can help prevent floors, drapes and valuables from fading.
