Infographic - ENERGY STAR labels & specifications

Intro image for infographic about reading energy ratings
In Canada window certified energy-efficient windows start with ENERGY STAR certification. ENERGY STAR-certified windows meet or exceed high-efficiency standards and are in the top 15 to 30 percent of their class for energy performance. Temporary ENERGY STAR Certification labels are always affixed to certified products and contain various ratings to help suppliers and consumers know what they are purchasing or installing.

But to the average consumer these labels can be a whole bunch of information overload. Our infographic is an attempt at cutting to the chase to provide some basic definitions and information to help you understand what you are seeing.
