Window glass solutions for every climate zone
ClimaGuard™ residential glass can help you meet or exceed some of the most ambitious window performance goals – including ENERGY STAR® version 7.0 criteria. Administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), ENERGY STAR is a voluntary labeling program that helps consumers and businesses identify products, like windows, that meet the EPA’s increasingly stringent energy efficiency specifications. These products can help consumers and businesses improve their buildings’ energy efficiency and reduce energy-related costs. Our service teams can work with you to explore glass options to assist you with meeting new requirements, sometimes with little to no modification to window design and often without the need for triple-pane insulated glass units.
Effective October 2023, version 7.0 is the latest update to the program. It elevates window performance requirements for U-factor and solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) and redefines the boundaries of the U.S. climate zones.
ENERGY STAR criteria differ based on these four U.S. climate zones.
For every climate zone, there are ClimaGuard glass solutions that can help meet the new criteria, sometimes with little to no modification to your window designs and often without the need for triple-pane insulated glass units. See our double-pane and triple-pane options here.
