Run by the United States government, the ENERGY STAR program qualifies a wide variety of home products --- from computers to refrigerators to roofs --- for energy efficiency.
For windows, doors and skylights, the ENERGY STAR program makes sure each product is independently certified to perform at levels that meet or exceed energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Energy.
The great news is that any Simonton window can be ordered to meet ENERGY STAR qualifications for the four geographic areas of the country so that homeowners can gain the benefits of energy-efficient windows.
The experts at ENERGY STAR suggest the following tips to help people select the windows that work best in a specific climate:
