Why Purchase ENERGY STAR-rated Windows for Your Home in Orlando, Florida?
Thinking about buying new windows for your home in Orlando, Florida? If so, be sure to look for the ENERGY STAR certification label. ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy that establishes national standards for energy efficient consumer products such as windows, home appliances, computers, HVAC equipment, and light bulbs. Products that bear the ENERGY STAR logo have been proven to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants without sacrificing features or performance capabilities. For example, ENERGY STAR-certified windows can reduce your home energy consumption by up to 15 percent, which may not seem like much at first but over time can translate into hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars.
Another benefit to having ENERGY STAR windows is that they can help prevent unsightly sun damage to the interior of your home, specifically your drapes, wood floors, carpet, family photographs, and the like. Most ENERGY STAR-certified energy efficient windows have a specially formulated coating that lets in plenty of natural light but has been shown to reduce fading by up to 75 percent.
At NewSouth, all of the windows that we manufacture at our facility in Tampa bear the ENERGY STAR certification label. Our windows are built in the South for the South, and feature many of today’s most advanced window technologies, including low-emissivity glass, structurally reinforced vinyl frames, warm edge spacers, and corrosion-proof hardware.
