Homeowners these days are highly focused on reducing their energy bills while also keeping their properties comfortable in a world where the climate grows more volatile each year. Legacy Remodeling makes that task a little easier with energy efficient windows installed by trained window replacement contractors.
We offer a line of beautiful Restorations Windows boasting tons of style options and cutting-edge efficiency. In fact, these windows were named ENERGY STAR’s® “Most Energy-Efficient Window for 2022.”
What is the ENERGY STAR® Program?
All of our energy efficient replacement windows are ENERGY STAR® rated. They have received the US government’s recognition as efficient products that help keep utilities lower. While this program is voluntary, it is also widely accepted by brands as the benchmark for efficiency.
The program follows several mandates to ensure qualifying windows meet minimum standards, such as:
Being manufactured by an ENERGY STAR® partner
Have been independently evaluated by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC)
Have Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved NFRC ratings
Just like the nutrition label on your food, the NFRC provides an Energy Performance label for tested and rated windows. This rating system covers multiple features of your local Pittsburgh replacement windows, like:
U-Factor: This rating shows how effective a window is at keeping heat from seeping out. Lower U-factors are usually better.
Solar Heat Gain Coefficient: The SHGC shows how well your window works to keep solar radiation from entering the home. A lower SHGC is better for keeping your home cool.
Visible Transmittance: This rating shows how much visible light can enter your home during the daytime, which is important for enjoying bright, well-lit rooms. The higher this number is, the better.
Air Leakage: Perhaps the easiest to understand rating, air leakage represents how much air can seep into a room through the window. A lower rating means you’ll feel fewer drafts.

As a window replacement company in Pittsburgh, we know the value of a well-made product. That’s why our first choice for energy efficient window installations is Restorations. This line up uses a combination of modern technology and design to create a durable, ENERGY STAR® rated window.
