Each year, the ENERGY STAR® program honors businesses and organizations that make outstanding contributions to protecting the environment through superior energy achievements. SoftLite is proud to announce that it has received the 2022 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year award for the ninth consecutive year!
For demonstrating consistent energy-saving achievements, SoftLite was also honored with the Sustained Excellence Award for the seventh year in a row. These distinguishments represent the highest level of recognition bestowed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy’s ENERGY STAR program.
The Sustained Excellence Award is presented to partners who have received ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year for a minimum of two consecutive years. It’s the highest honor among ENERGY STAR awards and demonstrates that SoftLite delivers real climate solutions with its energy-efficient products and business practices.
ENERGY STAR Benefits
With ENERGY STAR certified solutions being verified for energy efficiency, why wouldn't homeowners want to reap the benefits? For products to be certified, they must undergo rigorous testing and be optimized for various climate zones before earning the iconic blue label. Not to mention, installing ENERGY STAR certified windows and doors saves homeowners an average of 12% on their energy bills.
Ensure You’re Getting ENERGY STAR Products
To ensure you’re getting authentic ENERGY STAR products, you’ll first want to look for the ENERGY STAR label and verify it has passed all requirements. Second, you will look at the energy performance rating from the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), which is equally as important as the ENERGY STAR label. The ENERGY STAR label indicates that a product is energy-efficient while the NFRC label helps compare energy-efficient products by giving independent ratings in several energy performance categories. Having the right label will guarantees that you are selecting windows and doors that provide energy-efficiency characteristics that are the most appropriate for your geographic location.
