The Ratings for Energy Star Windows
In order to qualify as Energy Star windows, there are several requirements that your windows must be able to meet. First, they must be manufactured by an Energy Star Windows partner. Next, your windows must be tested and certified by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC). Finally, your windows’ ratings must meet the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Star windows guidelines.
The NFRC rates all windows’ performances in five different categories:
- A window’s U-factor, generally ranging from 0.25 to 1.25, measures the heat transfer rate and how well-insulated the window is.
- Its solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) measures the total solar energy transmitted and how well the window is able to block the heat caused by sunlight. A window’s SHGC usually falls between 0.25 and 0.80 on a scale of 0 to 1.
- Condensation resistance measures how well a window resists the build-up of moisture. This is rated on a scale from 0 to 100. The higher the condensation resistance factor, the less build-up the window allows. In wet or humid regions, homeowners may want to weigh condensation resistance more heavily.
- Air Leakage (AL) measures the amount of air that passes through a window’s joints. According to the Energy Star website, AL “is measured in cubic feet of air passing through one square foot of window area per minute. The lower the AL value, the less air leakage.”
- Visual Transmittance (VT) measures the amount of light that the window lets through. VT uses a scale of 0 to 1, and a window usually scores between 0.20 and 0.80. The higher the VT, the more light passes through your window.
For more information on these ratings, check out Energy Star’s website on Energy Star Windows.
Best Materials for Northwest Home Windows
The best materials for home windows in the Pacific Northwest are vinyl and fiberglass. Both materials will stoutly resist moisture damage, prolonging the lifespan of your home windows. Vinyl is less expensive than fiberglass, but fiberglass is generally sturdier than vinyl and is much less likely to easily expand and contract with changing temperatures. Because of this quality, fiberglass has a longer lifespan than vinyl. Wood-resin composite home windows are also a good choice, as these will hold up against moisture better than standard wooden home windows.
You also want well-insulated windows to keep your home warm in the winter but, because summers in the Pacific Northwest are often short, it’s actually beneficial to choose windows that will let in plenty of heat during the summer. Look for windows with a high solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC), as this will ensure that the sunlight will provide some extra heat through your home windows.
Materials to Avoid for Vancouver, WA Home Windows
In general, homeowners in the Pacific Northwest should avoid windows made of wood, especially home windows made of softwoods such as pine. Unless you purchase some kind of moisture-resistant wood composite, wooden home windows are prone to moisture damage. This process could lead to rot and decay, forcing you to replace your windows, a potentially expensive project. So, staying away from wood home windows will most likely help you avoid unwanted future expenses.
