Replacing Your Windows & Doors Saves Energy!

One of the most important reasons to replace your home’s windows is to improve energy efficiency. Compare the energy efficiency among window products by reading the labels.

Windows that have the ENERGY STAR® label have passed standard testing to prove the products meet minimum criteria for energy efficiency. ENERGY STAR®-qualified windows can help to reduce your utility bill up to 15%. In additions, ENERGY STAR®-qualified windows, doors and skylights do more than just lower energy bills, they deliver more comfort, create less condensation and protect your valuables from sun damage better than conventional clear-glass double-paned alternatives.

For more information on how window products qualify for the ENERGY STAR® label, visit the ENERGY STAR® website.

National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC)

Another energy efficiency indicator on new window products is a label from the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC). The NFRC is a non-profit organization that administers the only uniform, independent rating and labeling system for the energy performance of windows, doors, skylights, and attachment products. 

NFRC’s testing of window energy performance is also a key component of ENERGY STAR® ratings. According to the NFRC, window products that carry the NFRC label have been tested to ensure that their advertised energy-efficiency claims are accurate.

Additional information regarding the NFRC can be found at www.nfrc.org.


Here is a list of common reasons why you should replace your windows:

  • Poor window energy efficiency
  • Windows are faded, worn or outdated
  • Windows are bowed, sagging or bent, creating pockets of air infiltration
  • Windows leak during rainfall
  • Windows accumulate condensation or frost between panes

According to the US Department of Energy, heat loss from an inefficient window can account for 10% to 25% of your home’s heating bills. If your home’s heating or cooling bills increase every year, installing new windows can improve efficiency and lower bills. Replacing single-pane windows with energy efficient windows will dramatically lower heating and cooling costs.

In a study published by the National Association of Home Builders in 2007, aluminum windows are expected to last between 15 and 20 years, while wooden windows should last up to 30 years. Since they are considered more durable than wood or metal windows, vinyl and fiberglass windows may last even longer.

If you live in an older home and the windows are at least 15 to 30 years old, you may want to consider replacing them for any of the reasons noted above.

JELD-WEN is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of reliable windows and doors. Our extensive product offering encompasses windows, exterior doors, interior doors and related building products that are sold globally through multiple distribution channels, including retail home centers, wholesale distributors and building products dealers.

Only JELD-WEN has AuraLast®

JELD-WEN’s secret to longer-lasting wood windows and doors is an exclusive manufacturing process that protects against wood rot, water saturation, and termites. This process is how we make AuraLast Wood. Unlike dip-treated wood, which is common in the industry, JELD-WEN’s vacuum pressure process forces the protective ingredients all the way through to the core of the wood for virtually 100% penetration. We use a closed-loop, water-based system, which reduces volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) by 96% compared to the ordinary method of dip-treating wood in open vats of petroleum-based fluids. Our intense, vacuum pressure process also results in using less preservative to achieve an even greater level of effectiveness. The reliability of AuraLast wood is only available at JELD-WEN.
