ENERGY STAR® Program
At MI Windows and Doors, we are committed providing our customers with high-quality, energy-efficient products. To do this, we proudly partner with ENERGY STAR® and work to continuously improve our products to meet its increasingly stringent requirements.
A voluntary program established by the EPA in 1992, ENERGY STAR helps businesses and individuals save money and protect the climate by identifying and promoting energy-efficient products and buildings. Products with the ENERGY STAR designation must meet third-party certification based on testing in EPA-recognized labs. Additionally, ENERGY STAR-qualified products are subject to “off-the-shelf” testing at any point throughout the year.
Window and doors protect your home and family from the elements. While some windows are better at keeping you warm, others excel at keeping you cool. ENERGY STAR performance criteria is based on ratings certified by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), and vary for each of the climate zones shown in the map below.
Our products work to put an end to cold drafts and overheated spaces by creating consistent, comfortable interior temperatures. Most MI vinyl products are available as ENERGY STAR-qualified in all regions, and many require no upgrades to achieve the rating. Aluminum products qualify for ENERGY STAR certification in South, South-Central and North-Central regions. For full details on ENERGY STAR ratings, view our product listing.
