When you purchase an Energy Star windows or doors, you benefit by more then just savings on heating and cooling costs. Windows that carry the Energy Star label offer four times the amount of protection from harmful UV rays that can damage your home's interior and fade upholstery, furniture and carpeting. You will notice a reduced amount of condensation on your windows and you'll be helping the environment by saving energy. But most importantly, your home will be more comfortable, year-round.

Moisture in Windows
Energy Star Qualification
Every Becker Window or Door that carries the Energy Star label  has been tested for the following.

U-Factor - Measures how well a window keeps heat inside. The lower the U-Factor, the better a window resist heat transfer.

Energy Rating (ER) - The ER is the bottom line for energy-conscious consumers as it is the indicator of the window's thermal performance during the heating season. The ER is not a temperature rating. It is a scale rating the comparative performance of windows based on three factors: 1) solar heat gains; 2) heat loss through frames, spacers and glass; 3) air leakage heat losses, regardles ofhow or with what materials it was built. The ER can be used as an idicator of the effect the windows will have on your heating bill.
R-value: A measure of the resistance to radiant heat (temperature) loss. A higher R-value glass has a greater resistance to radiant heat loss.

  • Values calculated using LBNL Windows 5.2 software, center of the glass performance data.
    ER varies by window style. Performance may vary depending on environmental conditions.
Triple glaze system may contribute to the window total weight.
R-value is the measure of the resistance of the glass to heat flow.
The higher R-value does not represent a better window, as other performance factors need to be considered.
