SoftLite Windows & Doors has achieved the elite ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year recognition from the EPA every year since 2014 and has earned the Sustained Excellence award annually since 2016. SoftLite windows with high-performance glass qualify for the ENERGY STAR label. They help protect the environment, save money, and lower energy bills.
ENERGY STAR is a program run by the United States Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Agency that helps individuals and businesses protect the environment through greater energy efficiency. The ENERGY STAR label can be affixed only to windows and doors that meet specific U-Factor and shading coefficient ratings for one or more regions of the U.S. These ratings are achieved through independent testing done to NFRC* standards. The ratings of one window will differ from another because of variables such as the glass used, style and product design. SoftLite windows have consistently achieved some of the highest NFRC ratings in the industry.
*National Fenestration Rating Council, a federal program created to establish standardized testing procedures and ratings of window and door products.
