Why it Pays to Look for the ENERGY STAR Label

Replacing your tired doors represents an important investment, but it only becomes a smart move if you can actually feel the payback in terms of improved comfort, reduced energy usage, and the amount of money saved. Switching to ENERGY STAR qualified units can help you save up to 7%-15% on household energy bills depending on your location and the type of window being replaced.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has established strict performance standards to vet the energy-efficiency of household products, specifically windows and doors in Woodbridge. Purchasing ENERGY STAR qualified goods means using products that encompass both organizations’ advocacy, which is to protect the environment.

ENERGY STAR Standards

Here are some of the features of ENERGY STAR qualified doors:

  • Glass panes that contain inert gases such as argon. These gases improve the window or door’s ability to insulate against unwanted heat flow, depending on the time of year.
  • Frame materials that improve the insulating values of the door or window unit.
  • Spacers that ensure a window’s glass panes are the right distance apart, to reduce heat flow and help prevent condensation.
  • Special coatings to create low emissivity (“low-E”) glass. Low-E glass enhances insulation by reflecting heat energy into or out of the home. As it reflects ultraviolet (UV) light away from the house, your furnishings are safe from UV-induced fading by up to 75%.
