Why Choose ENERGY STAR© Qualified Windows?

Planning on a new window installation project for your Columbus home in the near future? If so, you came to the right place! We’re one of Ohio’s leading providers in ENERGY STAR© qualified, top-class windows. Not sure what ENERGY STAR is and why you should care? Then you came to the right place for that, too!

At APCO our window and home service specialists are dedicated to offering our clients leading services, of course, but we’re also dedicated to superior products as well. We proudly offer ENERGY STAR rated windows, and today we’re going to tell you exactly why that matters.

What Are ENERGY STAR Windows?

If your first thought was a window manufacturer, well then, not quite. At its core ENERGY STAR is a certification program. Products from various manufacturers and industries have to present certain qualifications in order to meet the standards of the program. If they do, bam—ENERGY STAR rated. Products that are under ENERGY STAR certification can be nearly anything, from electronics, to HVAC systems, and, of course, to windows.

The primary advantage of a product being certified, is that it is certified to be energy-efficient—which is the primary goal of the program in the first place. These products are rated to save on energy costs and help you consume less energy in your home or business, and thus save you money and save the environment some grief.

For windows to be certified, they have to meet these specific criteria:

  • Manufactured by a certified program partner
  • Have to pass independant testing from the National Fenestration Rating Council
  • Have to meet energy-efficiency guidelines set by the EPA

What Are the Benefits of Choosing ENERGY STAR Windows?

The primary benefit of choosing an ENERGY STAR qualified window is that it is energy-efficient. But that hardly tells you anything does it? What does an energy-efficient window mean, and what does it do for you? It does these!

  • They help you stay comfortable. ENERGY STAR windows boast an exceptional U-factor, meaning they reduce thermal transfer from the sunlight that comes in through your windows. Does it feel hot beside your windows during the summer? It will feel a lot  less so with ENERGY STAR qualified windows.
  • They help you cut energy costs. Choosing the right, certified windows for your home can help you cut yearly energy costs by up to twelve percent. That’s some pretty big savings, and you’ll notice the difference on your next bill.
  • They can protect home furniture. Low emissivity coating on rated windows can drastically reduce the amount of UV radiation that actually makes it into your home. That’s the radiation responsible for making carpets look dull, and bleaching out wooden furniture.
  • They’re certified for quality. Products are very thoroughly tested for performance and quality, meaning your investment is practically guaranteed to be a good one when you choose ENERGY STAR windows.
