Checking the NFRC Label on Your Home Windows

Home Windows Wichita and Overland Park, KS

Created by the National Fenestration Council®, the NFRC label is an energy-efficient performance rating for products including doors, skylights, and home windows. This label can distinguish the true value of your investment by providing businesses and consumers with a way to compare the energy efficiency of their products. Fortunately, for homeowners living in the Wichita and Overland Park, Kansas, areas, you can find NFRC-certified window products at All States Exteriors. Independently tested and clearly labeled for your viewing, these windows are equipped with the features you need to ensure you are making a smart, energy-saving decision.

The following list provides the four major NFRC measurements and detailed instructions to help you read and comprehend this label:

U-Factor

Usually located in the upper left corner of the label, this number indicates how well your new windows will prevent heat transfer. The range for this thermal measurement can fall anywhere from 0.20-1.20, but keep in mind that lower numbers indicate a better U-factor rating.

Solar Heat Gain Coefficient

This number measures your window’s ability to resist heat gain on a 0-1 scale and can usually be found on the upper right corner of the label. On this scale, lower numbers indicate better resistance.

Visible Transmittance

For those looking for home windows that will allow an impressive amount of natural light into their living space, this is an important number to consider. Visible transmittance refers to your window’s ability to effectively allow daylight into your home. Usually found on the bottom left corner of the label, this scale ranges from 0-1, where higher measurements indicate increased natural light exposure.

Air Leakage

No one enjoys a drafty window. To ensure your windows allow the least amount of air into your home while they are closed, look for low numbers on a range from 0.1-0.3. This measurement is usually found on the bottom right corner of the label.
