To be ENERGY STAR rated, windows must meet these stringent standards:
- U-Factor less than or equal to 0.30 or 0.32 Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) of greater than or equal to 0.40
- South-facing Western Washington windows ideally have a higher solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) and a lower U-factor in order to decrease heat loss.
- East and West (West especially due to summer sun) facing windows should be shaded or have a lower SHGC
- Windows facing the North get little direct sun, making SHGC of less importance. A low U-factor is ideal for North windows to lower heat loss.
Energy Saving Basics
Other than the window itself, there are a few things you can do to help keep your home energy efficient all year long. Shades on you windows will help keep the heat out in the summer and the heat in in the winter. You can also ensure that your roof overhangs are properly sized, helping to conserve your home’s energy.For more ideas on how to raise your home’s energy efficiency, visit Energy.gov.
