SoftLite’s ENERGY STAR Most Efficient Products
The ENERGY STAR Most Efficient designation recognizes the most energy-efficient products among those that qualify for the ENERGY STAR
program. With various high-performance insulated glass systems, many of SoftLite’s windows and patio doors across our product lines meet the strict criteria to earn the Most Efficient products distinction.
SoftLite double-hung windows are the most popular style we manufacture and are the most-used window throughout the country. This operating style gained its popularity due to the double set of vertical sashes that slide individually with a tilt-in opening mechanism, which is especially helpful when it comes to cleaning! Luckily, these fan-favorite SoftLite windows are also some of the most energy efficient and highest performing in the industry.
Our double-hung windows are manufactured with a variety of features to maximize the energy-saving benefits. They come with specialized air barriers and weatherstripping that minimize air infiltration, numerous energy-efficient glass packages, and an innovative sill design that provides a strong bond between the window’s sill and jamb for maximum weather protection.
Slider windows are basically horizontal double-hung windows – minus the balancers. This style slides from side to side to offer an unobstructed view and easily allow fresh air into the space. SoftLite slider windows meet all industry standards for energy efficiency, air infiltration, and durability. By using quality materials like our technologically-advanced insulated glass, our slider windows are another one of our most energy-efficient products.
A “picture-perfect” view is only one of the many perks of choosing a picture (fixed-lite) window. Fixed lites are non-operational and are manufactured with our reliable industry-leading standards, making them another excellent option for energy efficiency. Our picture windows are precision-engineered to offer superior insulation and minimal air infiltration.
Homeowners who love the look of picture windows but prefer the ability to let fresh air in should consider our casement windows. These versatile windows offer the clean lines of a picture window but open out to a full 90 degrees with just a turn of the handle for easy cleaning. They also work great paired with other SoftLite windows to make an impressive combination!
SoftLite casement windows are specially designed with air barriers, premium weatherstripping, and energy-efficient Low-E coated glass packages to significantly reduce air infiltration and improve insulation.

Our Kingsroyal sliding patio door offers numerous aesthetic options, including designer handles, exterior colors, interior woodgrain finishes, and a wide selection of grid patterns. This glass patio door is gorgeous in any setting – yet still specifically designed to give homes unparalleled energy efficiency.
The Kingsroyal sliding glass patio door includes many features that provide exceptional energy-saving benefits, saving homeowners money on their utility bills. The frames, rails, and sash stiles are injected with R-5 ComfortFoam, an excellent insulator that improves the door’s thermal effectiveness.
