The energy performance ratings of windows and doors measure their potential for gaining and losing heat. The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) tests, certifies, and labels windows and doors based on their energy performance ratings. The NFRC label provides a reliable way to determine a window’s energy properties and to compare products. The NFRC label can be found on all ENERGY STAR® qualified window and door products.
U-factor is the rate at which a window or door conducts non-solar heat flow. NFRC U-factor ratings represent the entire window performance, including frame and spacer material. The lower the U-factor, the more energy-efficient the window or door.
Another measurement, solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) is the fraction of solar radiation admitted through a window or door and subsequently released as heat inside a home. The lower the SHGC, the less solar heat it transmits and the greater its shading ability. A product with a high SHGC rating is more effective at collecting solar heat during the winter. A product with a low SHGC rating is more effective at reducing cooling loads during the summer by blocking heat gain from the sun. Your home’s climate, orientation, and external shading will determine the optimal SHGC for a particular window or door.
Windows come in a number of different frame and glazing types. By combining an energy-efficient frame choice with a glazing type tailored to your climate and application, you can customize each of your home’s windows. Frames can be constructed from many materials, including wood, composite, vinyl, fiberglass or metal. Window glazing or glass can be tinted, multi-paned, insulated or coated.
Windows and doors can gain and lose heat through direct conduction through the glass or glazing, frame, and/or door. They can also gain or lose heat from air leakage through and around windows and doors. Sealing or preventing leaks in the first place is one of the best ways to minimize energy costs.
