The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® Program promotes the use of high-efficiency technologies and equipment in many fields including window replacement. ENERGY STAR labeled homes use at least 30% less energy than homes built to meet the national Model Energy Code while maintaining or improving indoor air quality. Window replacement is a big part of energy efficiency.
Per the EPA, windows typically comprise 10 to 25 percent of the exterior wall area of new homes. Research studies report that windows in heating-dominated climates account for up to 25 percent of a typical house’s heating load and that in cooling-dominated climates, windows account for up to 50 percent of the cooling load.
It’s just one more reason why you need Ultra Windows for your window replacement or replacement door project. You’ll get the quality replacement window or door you need with the premium installation you need. You’ll be well served and satisfied!
