How to Measure & Compare a Window’s Performance

How do you compare windows from different manufacturers?

How do you measure a window’s performance?

Don’t take the manufacturer’s word for it. Look for third-party independent certification. Use AAMA, NFRC, and Energy Star certifications.

INDEPENDENT CERTIFICATION OF A WINDOW’S PERFORMANCE IS YOUR KEY TO COMPREHENSIVE WINDOW COMPARISON

AAMA Gold Label Certification requires both AAMA and NFRC certification and requires the manufacturer to be subject to surprise inspections..

AAMA Gold Label Certification

All Soft-Lite windows have the independent AAMA Gold Label Certification

AAMA

The American Architectural Manufacturer’s Association (AAMA) tests the structural design performance of windows for air leakage, water penetration, and wind load design pressure.
    • Test for Air Leakage. The minimum standard is .30 cubic ft. per minute (cfm) of air infiltration. The lower the number, the less drafts and air infiltration into your home. Typical vinyl windows are in the .18 cfm range. The Soft-Lite Imperial LS has a rating of .02 cfm at 25mph –

15 TIMES BETTER than the AAMA minimum standard! Windows with high air leakage will waste more energy and cost you money.

Soft-Lite's Low Air Leakage Rating

  • Uniform Load Design Pressure Structural Test. Increasing wind is blown against the window until it breaks. The AAMA minimum standard is 94 mph winds before the window breaks. The Soft-Lite Imperial LS withstands 195 mph winds – MORE THAN DOUBLE the AAMA minimum standard!
AAMA

Test for Water Leakage. The window is subjected to 8” of rain per hour and increasing wind loads until water leaks through the window. The minimum standard is 33mph windload. The Soft-Lite Imperial LS can withstand 56mph – 79% BETTERthan the AAMA minimum standard!

 

Soft-Lite Air, Water, and Structural Load Ratings

NFRC

National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) is a non-profit organization that has established a voluntary national energy performance rating and labeling system for fenestration products.The NFRC label on a window will show the energy performance rating of the entire window – glass, frames, and all parts. (It’s not just a center of the glass R-Value measurement.) Insist on seeing the NFRC Label for every window you compare.NFRC tests and measures windows for:

  • U-Value
  • Solar Heat Gain Coefficient
  • Visible Light Transmittance
  • Condensation Resistance
U-Factor or U-Value
  • U-Factor measures how thecomplete window (glass & frame) prevents heat from escaping.
  • The lower the U-Factor number, the more energy efficient.
  • Ratings generally fall between .2 and 1.20.
  • Soft-Lite Imperial LSU-Factor = 0.17.

  • Soft-Lite has one of the best U-Value ratings in the window business!

National Fenestration Rating Council

The NFRC certifies the overall thermal performance of the window.

Solar Heat Gain Coefficient

The solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) measures how well a product blocks heat caused by sunlight.

  • The lower the SHGC number, the less solar heat is transmitted through the window. The range generally falls from 0 to 1.0.
  • Soft-Lite Imperial LS SHGC rating = 0.24.
  • A rating of 0.24 means that the window blocks76% of solar heat.

Soft-Lite's NFRC Performance Rating Label

Visible Transmittance
  • Visible Transmittance (VT) measures how much light comes through a window.
  • The higher the VT, the more visible light is transmitted through the window. The range generally falls between 0 and 1.0.
  • Soft-Lite Imperial LS VT Rating = 0.40.
Condensation Resistance
  • Condensation Resistance (CR) measures the ability of a product to resist the formation of condensation on the interior surface of that product.
  • The higher the CR rating, the better that product is at resisting condensation formation. The range is between 0 and 100.
  • Soft-Lite Imperial
  • CR rating = 72.

Energy Star Label
[/vc_column_text][dt_gap height=”20″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

  • All Soft-Lite windows are ENERGY STAR qualified for all regions of the U.S.
  • However, our competitors say the Energy Star Label is the only thing you need to look for in a good window.  In fact, the Energy Star Label does NOT give a U-Factor number to compare a window’s efficiency.
  • The only way to compare a window’s energy efficiency is with the NFRC Label.

  • Warranted for a Lifetime against seal failure.
  • Reduces outside noise and fabric fading.
  • Keeps room comfortable all year round.
  • The Imperial LS Double Hung window with Ultimate Triple-Pane and Super Spacer® has a U-Factor of .17, one of the lowest U-Value ratings in the world!

Soft-Lite Double Hung Windows with Round Top

Window is Not Foggy because of Warm Edge Technology The edge of the insulating glass is the most vulnerable to heating and cooling loss, condensation, and frosting. Condensation is an unsightly problem that will eventually stain wood, peel paint, and rot frames. Condensation can also contribute to mold growth. In fact, visible mold can often be found in poorly insulated or installed windows. Mold is more and more being linked to child asthma plus increases in respiratory illness, allergies, and outbreaks of fungal diseases.

KEEP CONDENSATION OFF THE GLASS WITH THE WARMEST INSIDE TEMPERATURE POSSIBLE.

The primary window condensation culprit is its insulating glass spacer. As a homeowner, its’ just as important to know what type of window spacer material is being used between the panes of glass as it is to know what type of glass package is going into the window.

 

What is Warm Edge Technology?

Common spacers made with metal can conduct heat and cold – causing condensation at the edge of the glass. To overcome the thermal inefficiency of conventional aluminum window spacers, the window industry has developed a new spacer system called warm edge technology. If the spacer material conducts less heat or cold at the edge of the glass than a conventional aluminum spacer, it is described as a “warm-edge” product. However, most of the newer window spacers still contain some kind of metal that will act as a conductor of heat and cold. The world’s only TrueWarm® edge is Super Spacer® because it has NO METAL.

  • Super Spacer® Improves Condensation Resistance.
    This insulating foam spacer helps reduce condensation and allows for comfortable household humidity levels. Mold needs moisture to grow, so reducing condensation helps eliminate health problems associated with mold.
  • Super Spacer® reduces Sealant Stress. The thermoset silicone polymer material in Super Spacer® accommodates the natural expansion and contraction caused by hot & cold temperatures, UV exposure, wind loads, and barometric pressure. This ability to expand & contract and yet still return to its original shape prevents stress cracks that ultimately lead to seal failure.
  • Super Spacer® Improves Heat Flow Resistance. Super Spacer® resists heat flow at a rate of 950 TIMES MORE than that of aluminum. This means lower energy costs, less condensation and reduced chances for mold growth.
  • Super Spacer® Improves Glass Surface Temperature. With Super Spacer®, the surfacetemperature of the glass at the edge of the pane is typically 16.6 F° (9.23° C) warmerthan with a conventional aluminum spacer. Keeping the glass warm reduces condensation.
  • Super Spacer® Improves Sound Absorption. The closed-cell polymer foam in SuperSpacer® transmits very little sound compared to conventional aluminum spacers or less-metal warm edge spacers, blocking out noise and creating a quieter home environment.

Soft-Lite Triple Glazed Glass with Super Spacer

Foam-Filled Frames and Sash
  • Comfort Foam™ insulation is standard in the vinyl sash, frame and sill on the Soft-Lite Imperal LS window.
  • Comfort Foam™ R-5 expanding polyurethane foam insulates sash and frame extrusions improving overall thermal performance.
  • Comfort Foam™ insulation is CFC-free and environmentally friendly.
Comfort Foam
Durable Window Sill
  • Engineered true-sloped sill with a unique tall sill dam that extends into the main frame to eliminate common corner seals that frequently leak.

  • Tight Mechanical Interlockholds the sash in place when the window is under extreme wind-load stress.

  • Q-lon Compression Gasket System has a cushion-gasket beneath the sash which straddles the raised sill rail under compression when locked for impressive air barrier and water resistance.

UltraSmart® Weatherstrip
UltraSmart® Gold SeriesTri-Fin™ Gaskets with Ultra-Fresh® anti-microbial biocide protection in the yarn of the wool pile fights mold & mildew spores, pollen, dust mites, and other air-borne bacterial fungi. Most other windows have no biocide protection in the weatherstripping.
  • Three sturdy polyethylene fins provide additional barriers and diversions against air drafts and water infiltration. Most other windows only have one thin fin of weatherstripping.
  • The Soft-Lite Imperial LS Double Hung window has (5) pieces of UltraSmart® weatherstrip on the meeting rail interlock. Most other windows have one or two.

  • 600 Inches of UltraSmart® weatherstripping is used in an average-sized double hung window.

Ultra-SmartWeatherstrip with 3 fins prevent air drafts
K-Beam™ Thermal Reinforcement with Kevlar®
    • K-Beam is advanced composite non-metal sash rail reinforcement. Most manufacturers of vinyl windows today use aluminum or steel to reinforce their vinyl, which works like a thermal short circuit due to the poor thermal properties of the metal.

    • K-Beam is a unique resin-based glass-filled composite material with Kevlar fibers for additional strength. Kevlar made by DuPont® is used to make bullet-point vests.

    • K-Beam is 5 TIMES STRONGER THAN STEEL, 721 TIMES WARMER than aluminum, and unlike fiberglass, able to hold screws. It will not transfer heat or cold through the window as common metal reinforcements do with lesser design.

    • The meeting rails are reinforced with

K-Beam and also act as the Mechanical Structural Interlock, which fights intense wind pressure.

Endura-Force™ Balance System
  • Endura-Force™ Balance system provides smooth, quiet, easy lifting and lowering of sashes.
  • Teflon® -coated ¾” Heavy-Duty stainless steel balance never needs lubrication or adjustment. Most other windows use a ½” balance.
  • Balance is installed in asound-deadening thermoplastic chamber for thermal improvement and cleanliness, which helps prevent air leakage.
  • No strings, pulleys, wire springs, or block and tackle system in a large metal housing that lowers thermal performance.
  • Safety feature holds sash in place so it won’t fall out of jamb.
