Just like cars have miles per gallon ratings, windows have ratings that tell you how energy efficient they are.
And just like every new car on the lot has an MPG sticker, windows come with an NFRC label that will tell you pretty much everything you need to know (FYI: This label is the only one accepted by the US Department of Energy’s ENERGY STAR® program).
One of the most important ratings on this label is the U-Factor of a window. Since U-Factor measures the rate of heat loss out a window, it is crucial to have the right U-Factor to save energy all winter.

It takes around 30 minutes to an hour to install one new energy-efficient window on your home. The process requires removing the old window and inspecting the frame for warping and other damage that needs repairing before installation. Our installation crews thoroughly inspect each frame to ensure the window fits perfectly, and we are firm believers that it is always better to measure twice and cut once.
Most home projects can be completed in one or two days. Before commencing work, we will determine the best time to perform the task so that it causes minimal disruption to your routine.
