Kolbe’s Windows Awarded Energy Star Most Efficient in 2014January 31st, 2014 by DWM Magazine
Kolbe’s windows have been recognized as a most efficient product in The Energy Star® Most Efficient 2014 designation.
“Kolbe products are designed for today’s stricter building codes and standards for energy efficiency, as well as the energy requirements for green building rating systems,” says Kolbe’s executive vice president Jeff De Lonay. “You can tailor our products to meet the energy-efficiency level you want and need. We use the latest innovations in low-E technologies in various combinations, so we are able to offer glass that is best-suited to any climate.”
The Energy Star program uses energy values obtained by door and window manufacturers through the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) program. NFRC ratings are based on the energy performance of the total window or door—both glass and frame.
“Remember, for doors and windows to provide optimal energy efficiency, they must be flashed, caulked and sealed properly at the time of installation,” adds De Lonay. “All of our products are shipped with detailed installation instructions, which emphasize the importance of these final steps to the builder. Once properly installed, the energy-efficient technology built into Kolbe products will further ensure the benefits of a healthy and comfortable living or working environment.”
