Energy Star decal helps us window shop

If a showroom window – or any new product – is tagged with the international Energy Star symbol, it is an indication that the product qualifies as the highest in its category for energy efficiency. The qualification criteria is rigorous, so Energy Star-labelled products are positioned to save you hundreds of dollars in home heating costs and will help to reduce greenhouse gas pollutants significantly as well.

“Centennial Windows for example, has been named the Canadian ‘Energy Star Manufacturer of the Year’,” says Erin Johnson of Edgetech, an industry leader in the development of “health smart” windows. Edgetech supplies the foam “spacer” component in the windows, a non-metallic insulation feature that is proven to reduce condensation and mould.

“The Office of Energy Efficiency at Natural Resources Canada presented the awards in Montreal recently, where,” she said, “hundreds of items were evaluated for conservation innovation from light bulbs to appliances and from windows to furnaces.”

The award statement by Energy Star points out why windows – manufactured with just the right insulation features – are so important in the worldwide effort to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions:

“Centennial Windows Limited, a leader in promoting energy efficiency in the replacement window industry for more than two decades, was one of the earliest companies in North America to offer low-emissivity (low-E) coatings and argon gas fill in its products. The company has also long advocated third party independent labeling as a means of promoting energy efficiency to consumers – its products were the first to carry the Canadian Standards Association certification label for windows.

Centennial’s philosophy of stringent standards and high energy efficiency labeling is reflected in its product line. The company’s windows far exceed the basic requirements of the Energy Star program and are qualified for installation with an Energy Star label anywhere in Canada, including the Far North.”
