Savvy homeowners looking to save money on their heating and cooling bills are familiar with the ENERGY STAR seal. It’s what they look for when seeking products that offer the most benefits in terms of energy efficiency. That’s why it was important for Western Window Systems to make sure its new Series 7000 family of performance-based products earned the government-backed national symbol of energy efficiency.
“We believe the addition of the ENERGY STAR seal of approval to our performance line of moving glass walls and windows will help people make easy, informed decisions when choosing energy-efficient building products for their homes,” says Cameron Wyatt, Western Window Systems’ vice president of design and supply chain. “We’ve invested heavily across our new Series 7000 performance family to create a lineup of ENERGY STAR labeled products that encourages people to live better while knowing they are making an environmentally responsible choice.”
From sliding and folding doors to hinged and fixed windows, the products in the Series 7000 performance line released over the past 18 months have ENERGY STAR-qualified options while also including advancements such as across-the-board low U-value ratings, exceptional design pressure (DP) ratings, and low-E coated glass from Cardinal IG.
“The product and technology innovations in our new Series 7000 family combined with ENERGY STAR certification will continue to push our focus on energy efficiency in exciting new ways,” says Wyatt. “We’re thrilled to offer customers looking to cut costs, consume less energy, and decrease waste an attractive solution.”
Established as a voluntary program in 1992 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, ENERGY STAR is designed to be used as a consumer guide, letting homeowners know which products provide superior energy efficiency and thereby protect the environment.
