Standards for energy efficiency for windows have been put in place to ensure that windows perform well in our climate. Energy Star certification is one such standard. Note however that they are not the only energy efficient windows. Windows can be very energy efficient even if they do not come with this certification. In addition other factors can affect the energetic performance of your home including the number of windows in the house, the climate, the orientation of the house, the quality of the glazing and the materials used to manufacture the window.
