Understanding Windows

Efficient windows are more than just a few panes of glass in a frame: the technologies that make them so beneficial are invisible, and embedded inside them. It takes just a few minutes to understand the types of windows and the options available to add long-lasting value to any home.

Types and Parts

Modern manufacturers offer efficient windows in a wide array of shapes and sizes, but all efficient windows offer these six features.

Measuring Performance

NFRC’s ratings system makes it easy to compare windows and how suitable they would be in a specific climate and home.

Assessing Options

Renovation, retrofittings, and replacing just some parts of a home’s windows can also boost efficiency.

Selection Process

These five steps ensure a good choice and one that qualifies for all the rebates available.
