We’re pretty sure that you’d take notice on the fuel efficiency label placed on windows of new cars. Well your home windows have something very similar placed on them.  Provided from the NFRC, this sticker shows the Energy Efficiency numbers for the window. So, if you’re looking for an energy efficient window, you should pay attention to the sticker on your new home windows.

 

 

 

So what do all the Numbers Mean?

U-Factor:The lower the U-Factor the greater the insulating value of the window. Keeps your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Condensation Resistance: The greater the resistance your home windows are to condensation accumulation, the better overall window performance.

Solar Heat Gain (SHGC): The lower a home windows SHGC, the less solar heat radiates into the home. Blocks the heat from the sun.
